Steve T. Chairman, CEO, Pacific Dental Services
I found the MERIT Profile to be a very valuable tool both personally and professionally. Not only did it help me identify areas of growth in my own personal development, this information helped me become a better manager and “maximizer of people”. I would highly recommend this assessment and training to any organization that truly understands that people will always be your most valuable resource.

MERIT Performance Index Service (MPI™ )

The key focus and advantage of the MERIT Profile™ and Performance Indexing System is that custom, position-specific performance indexes can be developed for each position within a company, integrating a position’s unique Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) with its character and behavioral competencies.

The creation of a customized MERIT Performance Index™ equation involves the skillful blending of character and behavioral data obtained from the MERIT Profile™ survey process with the company-specific metrics that define job success.

The MERIT Performance Index™ technology is designed to develop a specific benchmark for a specific hiring position within a company. While “proficiency tests” can verify whether or not potential job candidates possess job skills at desired levels, the MPI™ technology is capable of identifying the character and behavior competencies common among employees who are currently at the desired level, and use that profile as a reference point for evaluating the fit of potential candidates.

The MPI™ is essentially answering the question: “What kind of character and behavior profile is most ideal for achieving the desired performance outcome for a specific job within a specific company?” The MERIT Performance Index™ now provides the necessary perspective on the Character and Behavior of potential candidates to understand which ones are more ideally suited for a specific job in a specific company.
