  1. 32 new DISC Behavioral Competencies modules.

Do you remember that we had 6 DISC modules of behavioral competencies (Operational Positions; Middle Management; Executive Positions; Commercial Competencies; Leadership Competencies)? Well, now we have 32. In addition, these modules are the same positions that you will find in the DISC Target Profiles (Job Profiles) and also in the Competency Games, so you can make triangular assessments aligned. In the DISC Premium its cost is 0 credits. You will find them in the “Behavioral Competencies” tab when creating new projects.

 

2. All DISC assessment versions have modules.

Until now, only the DISC Premium version had all the modules available. Now all the remaining report versions DISC Standard, DISC Basic, DISC Commercial* and DISC Basic Commercial* have also all the modules for a small cost of 3 or 2 credits per module. The modules that previously had no cost in each version remain the same. That is, now you have the option to add modules to for example the DISC Basic, which will get the Basic report (two sheets) with the additional sheets of the modules. Remember that you can also “upgrade” reports, so you can convert a Basic (2 sheets) into a Standard (7 sheets) or a Premium (14 sheets) plus the modules you include.

*They have modules related to the sales area.

3. Improvements in the 360º Feedback Competencies Radar.

We have added a character counter/limiter in the observer comments so that it is not possible for them to exceed the word limit.

New Target DISC Profiles

This Sunday there has been a major update in the platform that involves updating versions of various technical elements, such as PHP, SQL, etc.. in addition to updating the frame of the platform itself. This supposes:

  • Higher browsing speeds
  • More power in data loading

Due to the magnitude of the update, it is possible that in the coming days some “bugs” will appear in the use of the platform. Although we do multiple tests in each update is normal that may arise some process that does not work as we expect in strong updates. If you find anything that is not working properly, please put a support ticket so that we be aware.

We have also changed the system of Competencies Dictionary and Competencies Sets. This means:

  • Easier to see and manage competencies
  • Translation of own competencies into the languages supported by the system
  • Import competencies in one or more languages from Excel
  • Now the set of competencies used in a project can be edited within the project (in the “Project Configuration” section) to correct questions (this sets used in the projects are now independent of the Dictionaries).

New Report Evaluated vs. Objective

We are pleased to present to you a new DISC report that compares, in a personalized way, an evaluated with an objective profile.

Unlike the Recruiting Map which compares the profiles of several people evaluated against the target only on the map, the new report compares the DISC graph with the graph of the job profile, also compares the primary and secondary characteristics of the person with those of the job, also includes the area of improvement and the recruitment map. This new individualized report has a cost of 2 credits, our Recruitment Map remains without cost.

How is this new report generated?

In order to generate this new report we must have enough credits. Once inside a DISC project we will see that in the table of evaluated with generated report there is a new button called “Comparison”.

Clicking on the button will open a new dialog where we will see the list of target profiles we have created and we can select one, once selected click on the “Generate” button.

The system will inform us of the cost and whether we are sure if we want to generate it, and when we do, we will get the download button in different languages. Please note that once generated can not be deleted or go back, so it is important to be sure that this is the right profile. You can generate several reports to the same evaluated.

New functions in Radar projects

We have improved with new options the configuration of projects of Radar of Competences.

When creating a radar project you will see several new options on the project options screen

  • Weight of competences (existing): Allows to put weight to the competences that have an impact on the total final score of the person evaluated.
  • Who sets the target? (new): Now it is also possible to create projects without having a desired objective.
  • Are comments allowed? (new): Allows observers to put personal comments in their assessment of the questions.
  • Multiple levels? (existing): Allows observers to be differentiated by categories or levels
  • Identified levels (existing): Allows observers to be grouped by categories or levels or by number so that the levels are not identified.
  • Levels (existing): Choosing identified levels allows you to choose different levels, choosing unidentified levels allows you to choose the number of numbered levels
  • Weight by level? (new): Allows different weights to be given to the levels or categories of observers that affect the total final score of the person evaluated.

Now the Radar test can be rated at scores of 0.5 for greater accuracy in the rating.

In addition, when the project is configured so that the evaluated person also values the desired objective, we have incorporated a new type of questioning that has given a more accurate result in the studies and tests that we have carried out.

If this has been configured in the options, the observers will see a pencil icon that when clicking opens a window for entering comments on each question (this is indicated in the test instructions). The comments will be reflected on the last page of the report, identified only by their level.

In the report you will see a new page with indicators of the total valuation including the weighting of competences and levels of observers (if these options were activated).

New DISC Module Competences Health Area

Thanks to our LATAM team in the health area in collaboration with several hospitals and health entities we have developed, based on WHO recommendations, the DISC module of Health Area Competencies.

The module shows the valuation with respect to the NATURAL potential and the current approach (ADAPTATION) of the evaluated in key competencies of the health sector based on WHO recommendations. This assessment is NOT an assessment of your competence performance in each competence, but the NATURAL valuation represents your instinctive or natural potential to show or develop that competence more easily, i.e. your performance or development requires less additional effort. Your ADAPTED assessment represents where you are investing your energy or where you perceive that you should invest it for successful performance in that area.

Anything over 50% involves little effort, the higher the percentage, the lower the effort. Anything below 50% implies a little more effort, the lower the percentage, the greater the effort, but in no case does it limit how the person evaluated can develop or has developed those competencies if he or she has worked on them, since this is not what we assess.

Competencies are divided into two groups, the so-called “Patient Safety” competencies and the “Operational” competencies. When reviewing the competencies, they should look at those that are key to the position held by the person being assessed and ignore the rest.

Example of the module
