NEO was devised to address three areas; provide an organized process to evaluate the large amount of applicants interested in employment, provide objective testing of new applicants and to standardize a quality training program for new hires so that they can become successful additions to our family.  Our goal is to tailor a training program for new employees which will strengthen identified areas of weakness and give applicants that are not immediately hired objective data for self-improvement so they may reapply in the future successfully.  NEO is the first step to becoming a part-time per diem employee at SARS which is the most common entry way to eventually becoming a fulltime employee.
