The purpose of the Role Alignment feature is to have meaningful conversations around role expectations. Here you can learn how to use Role Alignment to explore the difference between your expectations as a hiring manager for a role and a candidate's expectations for a role.

When you request a candidate to take the self role alignment, they will be evaluating what they think are successful characteristics for this role. This is the exact same assessment as the role alignment assessment when you add it to a candidate or existing employee, but instead it will show a comparison between the candidate's DISC score and what they think is important for the role.

Here is an example of what one of the questions might look like.

Start in your ADMIN Dashboard, click "Candidates", then "Review Candidates" or "All Candidates", and then click on the candidate you are looking for. From here, all you have to do is click "Request Self Role Alignment".

When the candidate signs into Cloverleaf, they will get a task on their notification screen to take the self role alignment, and they will also be sent an email. Once they take the self role alignment, their DISC score will be shown over the role alignment score.

As a hiring manager, you can look at what you and other evaluators thought is successful for the role by looking at the role alignment for the role graph on the left versus what the candidate thought was successful by looking at the self role alignment completed by the candidate on the right.

This comparison shows what you an other evaluators see as important and expect from someone in the role versus what the candidate sees as important and expects to be doing in the role. This does not in any way mean that they are not a good fit for the role, it is simply to create conversation around the differences in the scores and the expectations of the role.

Coming soon: Interview questions surrounding the differences between the candidate's self role alignment and the role alignment completed by the hiring manager for successful conversations.
