NannyTest is unique in combining both risk assessment (also known as an integrity test) 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.
TakeCare’s service enables parents to use the same psychological screening tools deployed by larger organizations, by making professional personality tests easily accessible, affordable and easy to use.
Says Edina Stone, founder of aupairclearinghouse.com, America’s First and Only Consumer Resource on Au Pairs: "The NannyTest is a very useful tool for parents looking to hire a nanny or babysitter. The fact that the tests are now available in Spanish and Portuguese, along with English, is great news - now host families can use the NannyTest before hiring a South-American or Mexican Au Pair."
Yossi Pinkas, TakeCare’s CEO, adds: “Since launching the NannyTest English version, we have received many requests from parents who were looking to screen nannies or Au Pairs which cannot fluently read English. The availability of NannyTest in Spanish and Portuguese will allow more parents to use this test. I believe personality assessments are as important as interviews, reference checks and background checks and that all parents should perform them as an integral part of their nanny, au pair or babysitter selection 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 PC with internet access is available and do not require the candidate to have any prior experience in operating a PC. 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.
