GET TO KNOW US
Metrics Reporting, Inc. (MRI) joined forces with Drasgow Consulting Group (DCG) to enter the assessment market with a new set of assessments under the JOFI (Job Fit) brand. MRI has an extensive history working with partners in the assessment business, including with the ACT Workforce Division and their WorkKeysassessments, and with Educational Testing Service and their WorkFORCE Assessments. Our models for evidence-based selection, evidence-based career pathways, and O*NET-based Confirmatory Job Analysis all relate to the use of assessments. We understand what customers need and how customers use assessments. JOFI assessments are based on the same technology that was developed by the Drasgow Consulting Group for the United States Department of Defense.
Our Mission & vision
Build the best talent assessments in the world.
Meet Our Team
President, Metrics Reporting, Inc.
Bill was invited by Tom Karel to facilitate the Best People / Spiritual Workplace planning team in February 2010. That resulted in a business plan to advance “transformational” human resources projects in talent acquisition, talent development, performance excellence, and workforce planning. That plan was funded by the four West Michigan hospitals and marked the beginning of the evidence-based selection process. Bill has been the lead consultant on this work and guided Mercy Health to navigate the transitions from ACT WorkKeys to Hogan assessments to ETS assessments. The successes with lowering first-year turnover and increasing diversity at Mercy Health led to the HireReach initiative in 2018 and ultimately the development and launch of JOFI Assessments in 2020.

Chief Industrial Phsychologist, Metrics Reporting, Inc.
We met Jim as a result of our work with Trinity Health. Jim was introduced to us as Trinity Health’s expert witness for legal defensibility. Jim was so impressed with our work that he became an investor, director, and chief industrial psychologist of Metrics Reporting. As EEOC's Chief Psychologist in the mid-1970s, Jim drafted the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures and returned to serve as Special Assistant to EEOC's Chairman for whom he drafted the "race norming" prohibition in the Civil Rights Act of 1991. Jim was awarded the M. Scott Myers Award for Applied Research in the Workplace by the Society for Industrial & Organizational Psychology (SIOP) for developing the valid, legally defensible employment tests used by TSA to hire fifty-thousand airport security screeners. This assessment system was developed and deployed in only a few months. The country was in crisis following the 9/11 attacks. The U.S. Government made the decision to replace all airport security contractors with Transportation Security Agents. Jim was a member of the team that designed and delivered the screening process to hire those TSA agents on an expedited schedule (six weeks start to finish).
