HOW DOES BEHAVIOUR PROFILING HELP ORGANISATIONS?
Behavioural assessments such as PPA’s can be used to solve a whole range of people issues such as:
RECRUITMENT & SELECTING PEOPLE FOR JOBS:
PPA can be used to recruit new staff; identify people with the potential to be promoted and developed; selecting people for jobs, whether they are external or internal candidates, assessments can be used to create an initial short-list (known as sifting), to decide on interview questions or to investigate essential characteristics of a job.
Research shows that interviews, CVs, references and application forms are very bad at predicting whether people will succeed. Interviews can be subjective because you will be hugely influenced by your prejudices, likes and dislikes without realising it. If you think back, you’ll remember the great candidate who proved to be a complete disaster.
Put teams together; identify pressure points and areas of frustration within an organisation; decide on the best organisational structure and create incentive programmes that really motivate. It can be used in any decision about people individually or people in groups.
PPA assessments are a way of making hard-headed business decisions. They will increase your bottom line by decreasing staff turnover, identifying talent and creating a more efficient and productive organisation
PPA can help manage tailor training programmes and ensure people are in the right job for them. Staff feel valued in a positive work environment and so are less likely to leave.
Assessments can identify strengths and limitations, pinpoint training needs and be used to evaluate the success of training courses.
JOB AND PERSON COMPATIBILITY
Matching the right candidate with the right job has always been a challenge. Job profiling can help you find the people that ‘fit’ by defining the behavioural characteristics needed to succeed in a particular role. Thomas job profiling tools match people to positions, helping to recruit the right person for the job, the first time.
Working in tandem with PPA’s , job profiling enables you to quickly and effectively profile the job you are recruiting for and compare it with the behavioural profile of your candidates - giving you an external, expert opinion on the ‘goodness of fit’ between a candidate’s profile and the required profile for the role. Thomas job profiling tools can be used to assist with recruitment, retention and development procedures.
This covers a huge area from individual to organisational development. PPA can be used as a platform to coach employees struggling with aspects of their job, put together high performance project teams, assist with change management or survey potential issues within a team, department or company. It can be sused to counsel staff who are underperforming.
