"I have worked with Steve for over 15 years in his capacity as a selection, assessment, and HR research professional. His technical knowledge coupled with solid business acumen make him a valued partner.  He is, in my experience, a unique blend of the practical and the academic.  Steve knows the financial services industry and is able to make significant contributions to an organization's bottom line.   I recommend him to all of my professional colleagues for selection or consulting projects."

Vice President, Recruiting

"Steve Torkel is a true professional who is able to integrate high-level assessment strategies and skills into everyday business solutions. In addition, Steve has a unique ability to translate complex statistical analytics into practical business language making it a very positive experience for the client.  Steve designed a research project that enabled us to find key business drivers of team success and as a result has reshaped our consulting and coaching. We consider him a true business partner."

Director, Practice Management Consulting Group
Merrill Lynch

"Steven's experience and research with tests and assessments, particularly in the financial services industry, provided my sales development team with a common-sense approach to test design.  His Item Writing Course is a requirement for anyone who prepares tests and assessments.  And his 20 best practice tips have become the resource for us as we build tests for our frontline salesforce.  After we attended his seminar, we were inclined to improve 50% of our existing tests and assessments.  With Steven's guidance, it took very little time and provided more valid results."
