Understanding What Makes People Tick
The ProScan personality styles survey focuses on strengths and motivators, to help employers create an environment that reduces employee stress while improving energy and morale. ProScan is a non-threatening, quick, easy, and reliable survey tool that is one of the most advanced instruments available. The survey examines combinations of specific traits that affect how the person works most effectively and reacts under stress.

PDP is based on extensive research, case studies and a field norming currently over 5 million on the working well workforce population.


People focused, data driven
The PDP Integrated Management System is a proven program, making the business of people management more effective, scientific, and predictable. The core of PDP is the ProScan Survey and its resulting comprehensive reporting. In less than 10 minutes, individuals mark to what degree they believe 60 different descriptors match their characteristics and how they believe others perceive them. The data is then analyzed by the PDP proprietary online application, generating complete, easily-interpreted reports for individuals and executives. From there, the PDP Management System, including JobScan and TeamScan, is applied and implemented.

The ROI for Professional Dynametrics Programs (PDP) systems is substantial.
Companies who harness the power of morale, effective communications, and positive team dynamics are more efficient, productive and profitable. From the first interaction to the last work-group session, PDP systems help everyone engage better and take pride in their role at your company.

Results
Results matter and the PDP system is designed to deliver results quickly, reliably and as accurately as possible.

For over 35 years PDP systems have been grounded in researching working-adults and focused on providing information in a straight-forward, jargon free way.

Every survey instrument and resultant report is based on the work of top professionals, industry leaders and behavioral scientists and is tailored for today’s working adult.

Since 1978 over 5,000,000 PDP surveys have been completed with 96% of all people surveyed agreeing with their results.

All types of companies—from startups to century old corporations—have used the PDP integrated management system to optimize personal growth and strengthen teams.

With PDP, these companies have the tools they need to make critical personnel decisions for higher corporate performance levels and more profitability.

Here are just a few of the key results client organizations have experienced by utilizing PDP systems:
  • Reductions in employee turnover
  • Improved production
  • Reducing candidate interviewing time
  • Retention of valuable employees and increased tenure
  • Improved morale and sense of value
  • Decreased conflict within and across teams
  • Reduced team stress
  • Better communication
  • Increased sales

Research
Positive, Strengths based.

Too often individuals believe that for every strength they have, they also have five weaknesses. PDP disagrees with this notion.

PDP reports are written to help people understand their strengths. Why they do what they do. The reporting is positive, describing the strengths of individuality and answering the question of “what makes people tick”.

  • Over 5,000,000 surveys completed to date
  • Coefficients between .80 and .94 for all factors (.60 is considered standard)
  • 96% of people surveyed since 1977 agree with their survey results

Research studies & Information.
We are proud that PDP is based in scientific research conducted alongside leading behavioral scientists and focused entirely on the working adult population.

We have not set out to prove a theory and do not study students to try to understand professionals, instead we go straight to the source - working adults - and develop programs in response to findings.

The result is a top notch way of helping businesses understand their people and be more successful.
Stringent Research Parameters
Since the beginning, stringent research parameters have been used so all PDP system results are as accurate as they can be. The industry standard for correlating coefficients is only 60%, but the PDP standard is at minimum 80%. Research is based on stimuli response rather than relying solely upon a self-perception method, helping garner real-world applicable results. A variable norm is used to accurately determine individual strengths in comparison to other strengths rather than to population norms. These standards help us offer a comprehensive and complete assessment that can be used to place employees, help team members work together, and empower managers.

Validation Studies
We also participate in validation studies to help show the continuous applicability of all PDP system results. These studies are designed to measure effectiveness and accuracy as well as ensure that PDP systems are always relevant. Our first study and the original development of the PDP systems may have been in the 1970s, but we strive to ensure that every question applies to how business is done today.

EEOC Applause
PDP Certification follows EEOC policy: "Employers should ensure that tests and selection procedures are not adopted casually by managers who know little about these processes. A test or selection procedure can be an effective management tool, but no test or selection procedure should be implemented without an understanding of its effectiveness and limitations for the organization, its appropriateness for a specific job, and whether it can be appropriately administered and scored.
