At Solve we are delighted to now be able to offer behavioural assessments through our partnership with Thomas International.

Thomas’ behavioural assessment PPA provides an accurate insight into how people behave at work, giving you a greater level of certainty when recruiting, identifying where to maximise your learning and development budget, and understanding how to boost morale to avoid staff turnover.

It will also enable you to spend less time managing underperformers, letting you concentrate on those who will truly drive your business forward.

The straight forward PPA questionnaire takes only 8 minutes to complete. You are then provided with an initial profile detailing an individual’s strengths and limitations, their communication style, their value to the business, what motivates them, their basic fears and how they behave under pressure.

Once the PPA has been completed, there are 18 additional reports that can be obtained to enable you to match people to jobs, sift CVs, manage, coach, develop and train your people. It can even help you to identify leadership styles, advise on how to manage an individual effectively and provides tailored interview questions for individual candidates.

In addition to the PPA we also have access to Thomas’ vast database of online skills tests. These skills tests are particularly useful when recruiting for specific skills such as numeracy, literacy, customer service, administration, typing, IT etc.

If you are looking to gain a better understanding of potential or existing employee behaviours and abilities then contact our Recruitment Manager, Tracey Burke.
