TakeCare launches the NannyTest hosted assessment-center for agencies. NannyTest for agencies helps nanny, au pair and babysitter agencies in screening applicants.

NannyTest for agencies is a hosted assessment-center solution that is accessed over the Internet, does not require any upfront investment and can be deployed by agencies in no time.
Gary James, owner of Connecticut Domestics, a premier nanny agency, says: “I believe personality assessments are an excellent screening tool. Using TakeCare’s NannyTest personality and risk assessments as part of our nanny screening process helps us guarantee a nanny for up to six years.”
Adds Yossi Pinkas, TakeCare’s CEO: “TakeCare has been offering the NannyTest service directly to parents for several months. During this period, several agencies have started using NannyTest, and launching NannyTest hosted assessment-center for agencies will allow us to better serve the specific needs of agencies. I believe personality assessments are as important as interviews, reference checks and background checks and that all agencies should perform them as an integral part of their nanny, au pair or babysitter screening process”.
TakeCare’s NannyTest has been designed specifically for the assessment of nannies, au pairs and babysitters, with a focus on identifying risk factors such as tendency towards violent behavior, drug or alcohol abuse, truthful reporting, theft from place of employment etc. The test also assesses other relevant personality traits: responsibility, obedience and discipline, coping with pressure, positive attitude and more.
