Recommended Use of Products: Corporate


This page is general in its guidance.  Consult an HRC client service representative for a custom program based upon your needs.  For detailed information, ask for a literature packet or read about our services and products in detail on the internet (http://www.handwriting.com).

As policy, collect and keep on file handwriting samples of ALL employees and job applicants (for use now or later).  Personality profiles can be produced on employees when the need arises, such as: during an investigation, or to understand why an employee who later leaves the company was so successful/ unsuccessful, or to understand why one’s performance has improved or declined over time by comparing earlier handwriting samples to current ones.  Success models can be created by profiling excellent & poor employees for use in screening future job applicants.

To get started:

1. Photocopy & reuse (as needed) the HRC Order Form and the Handwriting Instruction Form when ordering a handwriting analysis.

2. Complete the Order Form and obtain a handwriting sample, preferably using our form.  A suitable handwriting sample for analysis does not require use of our form, however.  Ideally, obtain: most of a page of cursive writing on unlined paper (if person only prints all capitals, then 2 lines of cursive is desired in addition to the printing).  If person normally mixes print and cursive, or writes lower case print, that is acceptable.  Finally, a signature and date.  The contents of the writing sample are irrelevant, though spontaneous writing is preferred, rather than copying.

3. Mail or fax the completed Order Form with the handwriting sample(s) to HRC.  If you fax, set fax machine on the “fine” or “detail” setting.

4. Analysis results will be returned fax, mailed or Fed-Xed as you requested on the Order Form.  A telephone consultation to review the results is included with most of our products: just call when you’re ready to review.

Turnaround Time:

Results are provided in two business days; one day “rush” services are 25% additional.


HRC will bill you for our services on a monthly basis; due net 30 days.  Use our services on an as needed basis; there are no contracts to sign.


Any analysis can be upgraded to a more in-depth profile by simply notifying us by phone or fax.
