Personality traits directly influence individual performance, or potential to perform
Powerful insight into how the candidate is likely to approach the role and fit with the team.
When used correctly, personality tests give you excellent insight into a person and their preferred way of behaving and interacting with others. Our personality assessment is based on the globally endorsed and widely used “Big Five” or “Five Factor” model of personality. It assesses traits that generally remain stable throughout a person’s life and provides objective, scientific and highly useful information about how they’ll behave in the workplace.
Find out if your candidates are likely to succeed in the role.
It’s great to know how someone will behave, but it’s also critical to know whether they have the right personality to succeed in a specific role. That’s why our personality assessment includes a range of benchmarks – sets of traits that have been demonstrated to predict success in a role – that you can compare your candidates with. So, if you’re hiring for a sales manager, you can see if your candidates have the right mix of traits like achievement, extroversion, and goal-orientation. Or, if you need to hire a customer service rep, you can use a benchmark that includes traits such as cooperativeness and patience.
Comfort in a role leads to increased engagement, satisfaction and performance
We always recommend combining personality assessments with cognitive ability tests. While the latter tells you if someone can do the job, a personality test tells you how relaxed and at ease your candidates will be, in terms of the behavioural requirements of the job. When people don’t need to expend extra energy to behave in a certain way at work – when they’re able to act in a way that feels more natural and instinctive to them – they’re more likely to be engaged and satisfied in their jobs. In turn, this leads to improved performance and reduced voluntary turnover.

Use a trusted, scientifically valid personality assessment
While there are plenty of personality tools available, it’s crucial when hiring to select an assessment that’s based on robust science and has been extensively validated to predict performance on the job and success in different roles.
