Nearly 30% of all jobs have critical tasks that include a physical component. These jobs span diverse private- and public-sector industries, including utilities, transportation, telecommunications, and public safety. From a hiring perspective, the stakes in this arena are high. Individuals with inadequate physical capabilities experience more workplace injuries and absences, exposing employers to costly workers’ compensation claims. On the other hand, physical standards that do not reflect actual job demands can create artificial employment barriers. For these reasons, an optimal hiring process must include accurately identifying and effectively assessing a diverse array of physical talents.
HumRRO is in a unique position with our diverse set of capabilities and tools needed to help organizations navigate these challenging waters. Our acquisition of Human Performance Systems (HPS) added several internationally known experts in physical ability testing to our staff. Coupled with our decades of expertise conducting rigorous job analyses to support the development of custom assessments for mission-critical jobs, we are now the industry leader within this arena.
