Everyday companies leverage large amounts of data to drive key business decisions from marketing to operations. However, companies are not using that same approach when it comes to hiring and specifically pre-employment or post offer physicals.
Using the Physical Capacity Profile at Aculas we can help companies in the Kansas City metro reduce on-the-job injuries by ensuring that employees have the physical strength and abilities to perform their job responsibilities. Additionally, we can document any physical impairments that an employee might have prior to the job, which in turn reduces workers’ compensation exposure.
While many of the companies we talk with perform some kind of physical assessment for jobs that are physically demanding, many of the assessments are subjective and lack medical data. The results of the Physical Capacity Profile allow us to give our clients an objective report for each employee leveraging observable and measurable data.
The Physical Capacity Profile conducts 28 multiple-strength measurements, such as range of motion, grip strength and lifting endurance in less than 30 minutes, with the results available immediately following the test. Results are strictly based on the data and provide employers a clear picture of if an employee is physically able to do the job.
The Physical Capacity Profile can be used for post-offer or pre-employment physical exams, as well as fit-for-duty and functional capacity evaluations. Additionally, the PCP testing system is ADA and HIPAA compliant and has successfully undergone EEOC audits.
At Aculas, as well as other Physical Capacity Profile locations across the US, we regularly see the benefits of companies switching to the Physical Capacity Profile and using data to drive their hiring decisions. If you are using data to drive other key decisions within your business, why not also use it when hiring.
