  • (1888PressRelease) April 01, 2011 - TakeCare, provider of the NannyTest online personality and risk assessment, and Verify-ED, a resource for services and tools to effectively hire and manage employees, have partnered to improve the screening of nannies and other caregivers by including both personality assessments and credentials verifications in the screening process.

    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 suitability. The test provides better insight into the personality and traits of the nanny, and as well as indications of possible risk factors.

    Verify-ED has created Val-ID-ate to show proof that a professional's credentials have been checked. Verify-ED also offers a complete slate of background screening services, including identity verification, criminal records searches, drug screening, and credit reports.

    Says Joelle Hinds-Ware, President of Verify-ED: "Choosing a caregiver for their child is one of the most important decisions parents make. To ensure they are making the right choice, parents should use all available screening tools. Background screening and personality assessment can help parents learn as much as possible about a potential 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.
    "Personality assessments and background screening are as important as interviews and reference 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.

    Verify-ED's Val-ID-ate shows proof of past employment, certifications, licenses, and education.
