  • (1888PressRelease) August 01, 2010 - TakeCare, a provider of online personality and risk assessments of Nannies, Au Pairs and Babysitters, and Connecticut Domestics, a full service nanny placement agency based in Westport, CT, have partnered to promote the use of NannyTest, an online personality and risk assessment test for child caregivers.

    NannyTest is an online personality test that helps parents assess potential caregivers in order to choose the best possible nanny, au pair or babysitter for their kids. It is unique in combining both risk assessment and personal traits assessment. The test provides better insight into the personality and traits of the nanny, and ensures parents that they have done the best they can to leave their kids in good hands, as well as protect their home and property.

    Says Gary James, owner of Connecticut Domestics: "Being both the owner of a Nanny agency that takes screening candidates very seriously as well as a father of 5 children, I strongly endorse this product and encourage parents to use all possible screening tools when it comes to hiring a stranger to look after their children. I believe personality assessments are a great way for parents and agencies to really get to know their nannies and having this fantastic resource at our fingertips can really help us choose a better Nanny".

    "Many businesses (including some 80% of the US Fortune 500 companies and 75% of the UK Times 100 companies) enhance their recruitment process by using pre-employment psychometric tests. If interviews and reference checks are insufficient for businesses, are they enough for us parents?" asks Yossi Pinkas, TakeCare's CEO. "TakeCare's service allows parents, for the first time, to use the same psychological screening tools deployed by larger organizations. Personality assessments are as important as interviews, reference checks and background checks, and parents should perform them as an integral part of their caregiver screening process."

    TakeCare's NannyTest has been designed specifically for the assessment of nannies, au pairs and babysitters, with a focus on identifying risk factors such as tendency towards violent behavior, drug or alcohol abuse, truthful reporting, theft from place of employment etc. The test also assesses other personality traits: responsibility, obedience and discipline, coping with pressure, positive attitude and more.

    Tests are administered over the web, can be performed anywhere where a computer with internet access is available and do not require the candidate to have any prior experience in operating a computer. The test report is generated automatically and immediately once the test is completed and is designed to be clear and easy to understand by parents having no relevant professional background.
