Benefits of Handwriting Examination for Hiring, Team, Building and Conflict Resolution

  • Handwriting examination is an essential tool for business owners and HR professionals striving to find the most suitable candidates for positions from entry level to senior executives.
  • Handwriting assessment adds an innovative dimension to the recognition of personality traits, behavior profiles and management styles that are necessary for optimal recruitment, placement and promotion. 
  • Personality assessment through handwriting examination helps identify the talents and tensions of prospective and existing employees.
  • Handwriting analysis enhances the understanding of individuals that is valuable for team building, conflict resolution and management alignment.
  • HR professionals that use handwriting assessment are better able to recognize and encourage individual potential for optimal performance of all employees.
  • Handwriting insights help to motivate and coach individual employees through comprehensive reviews on the job and when necessary in outplacement consulting.
  • The trail a person leaves in ink also has a forensic component. Handwriting exemplars should be available in the event that a questioned document, forgery or anonymous letter appears in any office or industrial plant. Fraud and embezzlement using the strokes of a pen are a multi-billion dollar industry from which companies need to protect themselves.
  • Pentec will heighten awareness about the importance of maintaining handwriting samples in employee files for potential forensic use on questioned documents.
