What does COR5 cost?

You can create a COR5 account at no cost to you. COR5 @Work’s applications are priced by credits, with most applications requiring 5 credits. At $4.00 to $5.00 per credit, that’s significantly less than other online assessment tools. And some applications are even free! Check out our pricing page for a complete price chart for all of our applications.

How is COR5 different from other online assessments?

COR5 gives you 5 distinct assessments – more than just DISC. Most online assessments focus on one aspect that either generalize or provide only a partial picture. COR5 accepts and more fully describes the reality of who we and others are because it’s the only system that looks at both levels of motivations as well as capabilities related to development. COR5 is a total system that focuses on making simple solutions to understand and apply key insights and actions that are driven by describing the differences among people.

Additionally, compared to other competitors’ systems, COR5 is very cost effective. Simply put, you get more for less.

Does COR5 really work?

COR5 is based on tested, painstaking research by Dr. O'Connor. COR5 comprises five models of human behavior and performance that enhance success. Here are some examples of COR5 in action:

  • Hiring Winning Performers:The typical current hiring success rate other than for seasonal and transitional jobs is 10% to 25% at best. Using the COR5 products as recommended with our Effective Hiring process that is embedded in this software, we helped a large company hire 33 new salespeople---ALL of whom proved to be highly successful, and several more so than other salespeople previously hired by them before embracing the Cor5 hiring concepts and products as an extraordinary example of the power of these tools.
  • Strengthening Your Culture & Leadership Through Cor5: One of the companies we worked with had a truly remarkable success story. It once was the lowest-performing company within its industry sector. After initiating a culture and leadership team change, it moved to the average financial performance level and then, a few years later was in the top quartile in one of the most difficult regions. A key to this dramatic turnaround that continues today is its total immersion and consistent use of the COR5 products in its hiring, development, and promotional practices. Among the successes they’ve experienced is a very high level of successful hires (85%), very high employee satisfaction and retention rate (90% plus), and extraordinary track record of growing its own internal management-leadership successors (95% internal promotions).
  • From Successful Leader To Industry Icon:The COR5 products and concepts have tremendous power to transform those who seriously seek to understand and apply them for both greater success and fulfillment—for themselves and others. One of the best examples is our former client, Pete, an end-user leader-manager who used this know-how to become a legend in his own industry. He took advantage of this new “know-how” to better understand, predict, and influence customers, employees, leaders, partners, other owners, boards, and others by focusing on what he liked to call their ‘soft’ and ‘hard-wiring.’ He used this to successfully manage a variety of businesses, develop many direct reports (and, in turn, theirs by learning and applying this same know-how) as a self-made success story as a person from humble roots.
