About This Software

No matter who you are, in order to be successful, you must have and use good judgment. Judgment is the primary driver of our decisions, choices and actions; it is more important than personality or even intellect. In fact, personality and intellect have little, if any, correlation to success. Sure, at times a pleasing personality or high intellect helps, but success requires an ability to make successful decisions, and we do that through our judgment. The Athena Assessment measures judgment.

Comments: Of all of the employee assessment tools we have used over the years this is by far a superior software. The judgment and decision making results are above anything in the industry. We have used the Athena quotient for over 5 years and it is always on the money. The times we have not utilized the information have always been negative for our company. The system is easy to use, the assessment easy to follow and you receive instant reports on the prospect. It is also a valuable tool when promoting within your organization. We will continue to use the Athena assessment in our hiring process for all potential candidates.

Wes, thank you for your review. If you have mixed reviews regarding scoring and performance please call your account manager. We'll be glad to provide additional training to help better understand what particular judgments are necessary in your top performers. As you know, there are many facets to our judgment. There might be particular areas we need to emphasize more, or less, for your particular business. If you've recently hired someone with overall strong judgment, remember that the issue is no longer judgment strength, but job fit. We most definitely can solve your issue between scores and performance. It's what we do. Please call anytime with questions. We're here to help. Thank you.

We utilize Athena in pre-employment screening, as well as Team Member self awareness

Comments: We have found Athena quotient to be a very reliable source for selecting employees. Our only concern is that potential candidates do not always notice that when moving items from the left to the right they pop up to the top and do not stay where they are placed. It creates the need for some people to take the assessment twice. Otherwise user friendly and a valuable tool.

Comments: I think the software is good. Instructions for taking the assessment are well explained. I would like a better explanation of the results of the Senior 22 to make it easier to understand. Barry is always available to help explain results.

I have taken the assessment personally, done training on interpretation, and had others take it.

Comments: Athena does two things - it assesses an individual's Values and it assesses their ability to make good decisions. It does these two things like no other HR tool available. It is incredible how accurate it is in assessing strengths and weaknesses in the 30 criteria that are assigned. Athena also identifies stress levels and triggers that can affect judgement and decision making.
Athena is not a personality or psychological test, and it's actually not a test at all. There are no questions that can be manipulated by the individual, only a series of unrelated statements. It is most effectively used by the employer that wants to make the best hire possible - that person who will make great decisions and has a great set of core values, then train that individual to be the best they can possibly be. It can be used as both a hiring tool and a management / training tool. The one year training program that works with the individual each week is an unbelievable bonus that can be used thoughout an employee's career.
Administration of the Athena tool is very simple, and results are immediate. A hiring agent can administer the test as an applicant enters the office, and have the results before beginning the interview. Information available in an instant can be a one page summary sheet, probing interview questions, or an in depth analysis of each of the 30 different criteria, all specific to the assessment of the person being interviewed.

Comments: The software is simple to navigate. Learning to read (interpret) the results takes some training. I believe the summarized Hiring Indicator is one of the best tools available - it 'boils down' the information in the Summary and 'weighs' the elements appropriately so that reading the results ('what does it mean to me, as an employer mean') is an easier task.

We still occasionally run across perplexing reports, however a quick call to Customer Service (frankly, I speak with Barry the majority of the time) and I have a better understanding of what I'm seeing in the numbers. Always provides great personal, down-to-earth service in easy to understand language - and overall deep understanding of the tool. I've recommended them to colleagues for years, and will continue to do so.
