Handwriting Analysis and the Employee Selection Process: A Guide for Human Resource Professionals

Synopsis

This volume is designed to help human resources professionals find out how handwriting analysis can be used as a valuable adjunct to other pre-employment tests. Sackheim suggests how managers can best work with a professional graphologist, shows how to find a consultant with the proper credentials, and demonstrates how to evaluate the various traits revealed by handwriting analysis according to how they affect business situations. Numerous case studies and hundreds of handwriting samples are included to illustrate points made in the text.

Excerpt

You have most likely experienced the following scenario: The interview you conducted was terrific. The candidate has the right qualifications, is articulate and appears to fit into the company's corporate culture. But your reference check gave you only a verification of employment dates and job tide. You know you cannot make a decision based only on gut feelings and intuition. It is at times like these that you wish you had a selection tool to round out the picture.

You have heard colleagues talk about their success with handwriting analysis. And you want to learn more about it. This book will help. It will familiarize managers with handwriting principles so they can work with a professional handwriting analyst. (And you should not try to do this work yourself. There are good reasons why it is not a do-it-yourself book.) In addition to helping human resource professionals, this book is also relevant for psychologists and handwriting analysis students--or anyone who wants to learn more about handwriting analysis.

Handwriting analysis has received much publicity in the past ten years as an additional selection tool that is gaining acceptance in the U.S. corporate community. Articles about its growing uses have appeared in such publications as the Wall St. Journal, the New York Times, Dun's Review, Industrial Week, Forbes, U.S.A. Today, Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times. Although many books have already been written about handwriting analysis or graphology (as it is often called), most focus on theory or a discussion of technique. Most authors have attempted to write "how to" books. The purpose of this book is to apply some graphological principles to specific job descriptions. These principles will assist human resource professionals who want and need the help of handwriting analysis.
