Useful context to help you understand your candidates
Get a holistic view of your candidates
Your employees’ personal traits directly influence their individual performance, or potential to perform.
While there’s no right or wrong personality, there are certain characteristics that can be more aligned to success in particular roles. More importantly, individual personality styles influence how people approach their role and interact with others, which in turn influences both performance and team fit.
You can access these personality tools with Revelian:
- The Behavioural Profile, which is based on the DISC model, provides practical insights at all levels of the organisation for all roles, with easy-to-apply reporting.
- The 16 Personality Factors Questionnaire (16PF), which is a more sophisticated measure of personality that provides a comprehensive profile of an individual that is particularly useful for senior and specialist roles.
Why use personality testing in recruitment?
Personality testing gives you powerful insight into how the candidate is likely to approach the role and fit with the team.
It provides useful context to help you understand your candidates.
This can be especially useful in the later stages of recruitment because it can clarify the observations you might have made during initial screening steps, helping you to refine your impression of a person and giving you clearer, more specific language to describe traits.
How does personality testing support decisions?
When used correctly, personality tests give you excellent insight into a person and their preferred way of behaving and interacting with others. Having this information readily available in a professional and easy to interpret report can help you to:
- More fully understand and appreciate the different qualities of final candidates being considered in anticipation of how they may gel with their future team and prefer to be managed
- Articulate a person’s characteristics more accurately when discussing candidates with hiring managers and others involved in a hiring decision.
Create a Group Behavioural Profile
The Revelian Behavioural Profile offers the unique capability of team profiling.
This process produces a profile that combines the unique behavioural characteristics of an existing team, which can then be used in comparison to the profile of candidates applying for new roles.
Such a comparison provides insight about the potential influence the candidate would have on the existing dynamic and performance of the team.
