Behavioural Assessments and Psychometric Testing
These can be of great benefit in several key areas of your business
Recruitment- to help establish that the candidate is the right fit for your team and support in particular questioning at an advanced stage
Team Balance: Making sure that you have the right blend of types of people in your team
Managing Poor Performance: By using a profile as a talking point with an individual to enhance understanding of the performance issues and how to motivate them
This is also a solution that provides great ROI as the small cost to perform this exercise results in:
Better recruitment decisions
Helps you get more out of your current staff
Helps your management in understanding how to motivate a team and what management style works best
A reduction in staff turnover and hence recruitment and training costs. Mainly because staff who have undertaken the exercise feel more valued, understood and motivated to accommodate and work with the peers.
Solve partners with Thomas International, the market leader in workplace assessments and we have certified Thomas trained staff who can conduct and analyse the Personal Profile Assessments (PPA). Thomas’ PPA behavioural assessment 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 where to boost morale to avoid staff turnover.
Individual Profile Assessments
A typical assessment will provide you with answers to many questions, including:
Is this person showing frustrations in their role?
Is our business playing to this employee’s strengths?
Is this person adapting how they normally behave in their current job?
Is it realistic for this person to adapt their behaviour over a sustained period?
What strengths and value does this person bring to the business?
What are their limitations?
What motivates this person?
Where are the gaps that an investment in learning and development can have the biggest impact?
What’s the best way of communicating with this person to get the best out of them?
Many teams, especially in today’s climate, are under pressure to achieve more with fewer resources. That’s a big challenge even if you have a team of Grade A performers.
So how do you ensure your teams are performing to their maximum ability? And what’s the key to developing them as an operational unit, rather than just as individuals?
A Team Audit workshop, used in conjunction with PPA and enables you and your teams to understand their strengths, limitations and key areas for development.
The Team Audit workshop is facilitated by Solve.’s accredited PPA practitioner and generally lasts twohours. It encourages open and honest team dialogue and will answer many questions, including:
What role does each person play within the team?
Where are the areas of weakness in the team?
How do we address those limitations?
Are we playing to the strengths of each team member?
What leadership style will inspire my team towards high performance?
A PPA Team Audit provides the clarity you need to identify and address key development areas.
Sifting through CVs, short listing candidates and completing interviews is time consuming. Although we all believe selecting the right candidate is critical managers can still fail to get this right?
Why? Because research shows that a conventional recruitment process that consists of CVs, application forms and interviewing alone can be a bad predictor to whether candidates will succeed in the job.
Our candidate assessment will provide you with an initial PPA profile report which will answer your many questions, including:
What are this candidate’s strengths?
Do their strengths match the job role?
Which limitations will impact on their ability to be successful?
Will this person be successful in a role that is technical, quality or standards focused?
Does this candidate drive for results?
Can this person work with and through people?
Will this candidate excel in a service, support or specialist role?
How much detailed work does this candidate prefer to handle?
What’s the most effective way to motivate this candidate?
All assessments are easy and quick to complete and can even be done a mobile phone or tablet.
Solve.’s accredited PPA practitioner will then provide you with a detailed report for each candidate enabling you to focus your interview efforts on the right candidates and ask the right interview questions. In addition, they’ll help you to identify how to get the best out of your candidate – and match the right candidate to the right job.
