Make no mistake about it. The skills and personality traits that define an ideal remote worker profile differ from the job profile of employees who perform best “going to work.”

The number of remote workers has been on a rapid trajectory upward, doubling over the last 10 years. But it wasn’t always easy for companies to find the right person who could work away from the office. Not only do they have to make sure the candidate has the right skills for the job, but that he or she also has remote worker skills and mindset. Up to this point, a lot of hiring and telecommuting mistakes were made: the perfect candidate to work at your office might fail miserably working from home. The inability to assess remote worker fit may be a primary reason why so many managers were slow to adopt telecommuting as an option.

That’s why Success Performance Solutions is delighted to release the Remote Worker Profile. It includes 8 personality dimensions that differentiate top performing remote workers from under-performers. These 8 traits and attitudes were based on extensive research, conducted by its partner Psymetrics. Psymetrics then created a custom remote worker profile using its proprietary library of validated scales. The assessment is completed online and requires 10 minutes or less to complete. Results are delivered immediately to recruiters, HR, or hiring managers. Interpretation is easy too with easy to read results, expected job behaviors, suggested management strategies (should you hire the candidate) and recommended interview questions.
