Embracing the Ability to Hire with Confidence
Embrace Pet Insurance is a fast-growing company that has changed the landscape of pet insurance during its 10 years in business. Throughout their accelerated growth, the PRADCO team has been helping them better understand the talent they are hiring. Embrace Pet Insurance uses PRADCO’s assessments to identify behaviors that will fit their close-knit culture.
Using this assessment has been extremely beneficial to both the interview process and the onboarding process for Embrace Pet Insurance’s HR Manager, Ashley Qualls.
“The PRADCO Quick View Assessment has completely changed the way we look at candidates, how we review candidates, and the way we interview them,” she says. “It’s all changed for the better.”
With the company nearly doubling in size from when she started there, Qualls has seen how reliable, research-backed data on candidates positively impacts everything Embrace Pet Insurance does in the interview process.
“Using their service has completely changed our interview process,” she says. “Our hiring managers rely on getting the PRADCO assessments ahead of the interview and really rely on the data that comes from them to determine if there’s any initial red flags with the candidate. They also rely on the questions included in the assessment to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses of the candidate. Our managers really like to have the assessment results going into an interview.”
From her role leading the company, Embrace Pet Insurance’s CEO and Co-Founder Laura Bennett has seen how hiring for a cultural fit has been a factor that has helped springboard the growth at her organization.
“Everything PRADCO has done for us has been about finding the right fit,” she says. “It’s been very effective so far because not only do you get the assessment score, but you also get an explanation and an action plan. It helps you understand the situation, and it gives you the questions for an interview that will allow you to assess a person.”
From the beginning of the relationship, there have been clear expectations set by Embrace Pet Insurance, which makes them a perfect partner for our team at PRADCO.
“With PRADCO, when we first started the process, I was very clear about the service and what I expected from anybody that we work with,” Qualls says. “They’ve lived up to those standards across the board throughout the entire process.”
