My ponder today is Rebecca Monet and our topic today is psychometric assessments – how profiling your franchisee candidates can help you Determine Compatibility and Predict Performance. That’s a mouthful for sure. But basically it means profiling your franchisee candidates in order to determine if they 1) fit into your franchise system’s corporate culture, and 2) if they will be more likely to be a top performer in your system.

Segment 2 – Psychometric Assessments for Franchisors

How franchisors can use psychometric assessments to improve franchisee performance.

To a franchisor, granting a franchise is very much like getting married, with very little courting in order to “get to know” their partner.

Personality style questions are not used at Zoracle because there is less than a 3% correlation between personality and performance.

The science of the process is not in the questions themselves, rather how the participant orders certain words into a hierarchy of preference that is weighted on the back end. This gives clues about motivation, drive, and the decision making process of the participant.

The psychographic analysis is not fool-proof but there are mechanisms in place to report out inconsistencies in the answers of the participant.

Startup franchisors with no existing franchisees can still benefit from a psychographic analysis tool.

A psychographic analysis tool will help a franchisor in the following ways:

  • Faster ramp-up
    • Better quality franchisee and faster ramp-up
  • Better validation
    • Greater franchisee satisfaction, better validation and less litigation
  • Reduced cost to support
    • Reduced cost to recruit, support and train franchisees
  • Greater retention
    • Stronger franchisee compliance and retention
  • Increased performance
    • Increased franchisee performance and profitability
