Rolling Meadows, IL. (PRWEB) December 20, 2005
Valtera, a leading selection and assessment provider, announced the debut of its first Manager Assessment Portal, customized for Rent-A-Center. The portal is a dual-use assessment application, a system that merges manager selection with manager development in one seamless tool.
Valtera’s Manager Assessment Portal uses custom, validated assessment tests to identify and select highly-qualified applicants for store manager and customized development tools that link to the Learning Management System to assist store managers in acquiring skills for higher-level managerial roles.
“Leadership development is extremely important to our continuing success,” said Becky Crawford, senior director of Human Resources at Rent-A-Center. “The new Management Assessment Portal is just one way to invest in our employees for the long term. This strategy works for Rent-A-Center.”
“We viewed the Rent-A-Center team as true partners,” said Mathew Heck, Vice President of Technology at Valtera. “Through active collaboration, we were able to design and implement a flexible system that met all of their needs, and then some.”
Built on Valtera's SelectionSage™ technology, the Manager Assessment Portal system has been internationalized to extend the reach of the system to Rent-A-Centers stores across North America and Puerto Rico. The system offers multiple language support for assessments and developmental feedback.
