Phoenix Jobless Benefits Call Center Closing – It Is Not What You Think

January 28th, 2013

Arizona Republic Reprint

The state Department of Economic Security has closed its Phoenix call center for unemployment insurance, citing cuts in federal funding as fewer people claim benefits.

Although DES officials say it reflects an improving Arizona economy, the closure of the Phoenix call center means the loss of 29 full-time positions. The agency is working to find new positions for the former call-center employees.

A call center in Tucson will remain open.

Although businesses contributed to the unemployment-insurance fund, administration of the Arizona Unemployment Insurance program is 100 percent federally funded. That funding is largely based on how many people are claiming benefits. More than 200,000 people claimed benefits in 2010, but that number dropped to less than 75,000 this month.

“The job market in Arizona is improving, and that naturally leads to a decline in the number of people who are receiving unemployment benefits,” said Mark Darmer, deputy assistant director for employment and rehabilitation services at DES.

Arizona’s unemployment rate was 7.9 percent in December. It was well above 10percent for much of 2010.

Darmer said people exhausting their unemployment benefits also factored into the reduction of claims being filed.

The agency said declining federal funding may lead to similar cuts in at least 21 other states.

The call-center closure comes just before DES moves to an electronic filing system for all new unemployment-insurance claims. Beginning Feb. 1, any person filing a new unemployment-insurance claim will have to do so online at www.azui.com. The agency said about 80 percent of all people file their claims electronically.

That means the change should affect only about 1,000 to 2,000 people a week, Darmer said.

He said county-run One-Stop job centers across the state can help people with their online applications as well as provide training and workforce-development opportunities.

Assessment Tools for Making Better Hires

October 31st, 2012

Having the right tools at your disposal can make hiring a lot easier—and a lot more successful. Here is a quick overview of different assessments tools you can use, beyond the basic job interview:
Qualifications Screens – simple questionnaires determine if an applicant has the minimum requirements to perform a job (availability, minimum age, years of related experience, etc.).

Job Simulations / Work-Sample Tests – These require the candidate to actually demonstrate or perform job tasks. Simulations may be conducted: as written tests, as role-playing exercises, on a computer, or even in real-life conditions. By design, they generally show a high degree of job-relatedness.

General Abilities Tests – Generally used for entry-level jobs or for applicants without advanced degrees. They measure broad mental abilities such as reasoning, quantitative, verbal, and spatial abilities.

Specific Ability Tests – Test for distinct mental and physical abilities, such as typing speed, reading comprehension, strength, and mechanical aptitude.

Knowledge and Skills Tests – Determine how much an individual knows about a very specific, advanced subject area such as software programming or mortgage laws. Knowledge tests are similar to specific ability assessments, but examine more sophisticated skills.
Talent Measures / Personality Inventories – Measure a candidate’s natural personal characteristics like: leadership and management skills; problem-solving ability; motivation; self-confidence; and communication styles.

Culture Fit Inventories – Assess how well an applicant will fit into your corporate culture and work environment, to help ensure organizational commitment.
Background Investigations – Gather information from outside sources, such as former employers and police records. Employment, criminal record, and reference checks all help employers avoid potentially catastrophic hires.

Drug Screens – Use a physical specimen from the candidate (hair, urine, etc.) to determine past drug or alcohol use. Employers use drug screens to prevent industrial accidents, work-related injuries, and excessive absenteeism.

If you would like more information about any of the above assessments please contact us today.
