Psychometric testing is designed to help you understand the personalities and behavioural traits of people at work and measure their potential fit with a role. Poor behavioural and cultural alignment between the individual and the job is one of the leading causes for staff retention issues in businesses, both within Cape Town and globally.
We offer the opportunity to take one of our psychometric tests for free to help you better understand your own personality at work, but also to start a conversation about how these powerful tools can help you to identify, engage and retain the best talent for your business.
Personality based psychometric tests are designed to accurately measure the core behaviours, values and emotions that drive people in their work each day. They can tell us how an individual will interact and communicate with others, how they will operate under various circumstances or under pressure. They also identify their most important motivators and demotivators at work.
The interDISC assessment measures an individual’s work behaviour. The results provide insights into how they will fit within a specific work role and how they should be managed to stay enagaged in the role.
The Personal Values assessment identifies the key motivators that drive people at work. If properly aligned with the values of the business, the individual is far more likely to stay engaged and perform optimally.
Trait Emotional Intelligence measures a person’s ability to understand and control their own emotions, and recognise and manage those of others so that they can be as effective and productive as possible at work.
