Post Properties, Inc. Selects PeopleAnswers to Boost Company’s Ability to Promote Employees from Within HR Software to Improve Onboarding and Succession Planning to Help Employees Supporting 60 Upscale Apartment Communities Succeed Business Wire DALLAS -- April 10, 2013 PeopleAnswers today announced a new software licensing agreement with Post Properties (NYSE:PPS), an Atlanta-based real estate investment trust that owns and manages more than 22,000 upscale apartment units in 60 communities across the eastern and southeastern United States. Post will use the PeopleAnswers HR solution in selecting candidates who have the right behavioral fit to deliver superior property management services and grow their careers with the company. “The multifamily market competes for top talent, so we look for people who will fit with our culture, advance within the company and stay for the long-term,” said Senior Vice President Linda Ricklef, Human Resources for Post Properties. “We selected PeopleAnswers for this solution because of their proven ability to objectively measure candidates and identify those who are more likely to build successful careers with us and provide superior service to our residents.” Post will use the intuitive, cloud-based PeopleAnswers desktop and mobile software platforms to help select and hire candidates for its residential properties. Candidates interested in roles including property managers, assistant property managers and leasing consultants as well as maintenance engineers will complete the PeopleAnswers assessment test. The assessment process will include a prescreen behavioral evaluation that will determine best-fit candidates prior to a formal interview and development of a custom Performance Profile for each position. In addition, Post will use PeopleAnswers for employee development and succession planning to reinforce the company’s “promote from within” culture and strategically align talent with business objectives. The unique ability to compare candidates with multiple positions to determine a future career path helps hiring managers select the candidates with the highest probability to succeed long-term. With PeopleAnswers, Post expects the onboarding process will also improve as managers will be able to use the assessment data to better acclimate associates to their positions and align a career development path according to each individual’s behavioral makeup. “Since each hire is an investment with potential impact on customer service, profits and the company brand, the direct relationship between talent and performance that PeopleAnswers creates makes the recruiting process more efficient and predictive, creating greater strategic value for both employees and companies,” said Gabriel Goncalves, CEO and president, PeopleAnswers.
