SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Good&Co, the talent assessment app with the bottom-up approach to culture fit –– made popular by millions of consumers –– today announced the launch of its enterprise edition: Teamwork Pro. Teamwork Pro is the new alternative to old-school employee assessments that puts teams at the center to simplify hiring and optimize performance.

“The best enterprise organizations are made up of strong teams. Over time, teams become collectives, each with their own unique personalities. When there’s a need to add to the team, finding the right candidate can be tedious, time-consuming work,” said Samar Birwadker, CEO of Good&Co. “So, relying on intuition alone or assessments not designed for the workplace can yield ineffective results that can hurt teams. Teamwork Pro removes the guesswork from hiring for managers.”

Backed by science, Teamwork Pro helps managers and recruiters analyze team members’ personalities and find candidates who are compatible with the team. The app’s in-depth assessments provide data-driven insights into team strengths, weaknesses, and individual roles, allowing managers to build happier, more productive teams.

What makes Good&Co different is its Proprietary Psychometric Algorithm (PPA), which is based on decades of research in career psychology and psychobiological frameworks of personality, rooted in neuroscience and behavioral genetics. Good&Co looks at the “Big 5” personality traits (openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism), along with three additional traits (authority, drive, and empathy) to more accurately reflect a person’s behaviors in the workplace.

“Having this level of understanding at the hiring and onboarding phase is critical, especially considering a third of new hires will quit after about six months,” Birwadker said. “We’ve been able to use the learnings from consumer data of more than 2.5 million users to design a tool for the workplace. Now, enterprise HR professionals can find candidates based on the psychology of popular job titles, key strengths of high performers, and how well they’ll contribute to the overall culture of the team.”

Teamwork Pro also lets companies track team wellness in real time by alerting managers of potential issues and offering insights that promote symbiosis through weekly engagement surveys. Learn more about Teamwork Pro at https://good.co/teamworkpro/.
