Profile:Match2® supports your competency-based recruitment and development
Profile:Match2® is a leading personality assessment tool based on the Five Factor Model and aligned with workplace competencies.
How does it work
Linking personality and soft-skill competencies to on-the-job performance, assessments are tailored to the requirements of a specific job and provide insight into the behaviours critical to job success. Based on your selection from our competency library, a highly relevant report is created for each of your applicant’s personality assessments to support competency-based recruitment and development.
Sifting and selection reports
Tailored assessment yields meaningful and relevant outcomes
The Sifting Report makes it easy to screen candidates prior to interview based on the specific skills and behaviours you’re looking for, giving you a one-page summary to help narrow down your applicant pool. The Selection Report is more in-depth, with interpretive text describing behavioural implications of a candidate’s profile and highlighting areas to explore for each competency, enabling you to objectively compare them to your other candidates.
Adding focused and relevant questions to your interviews
The Interview Guide provides a common framework for each candidate to be compared against, using the exact same yardstick. Based on a candidate’s competency scores, the Interview Guide supports the interviewer to probe for further evidence, generating questions to help you explore potential gaps. The guide also includes hints and tips about how to incorporate these questions into the rest of the interview process.
Personal developments & feedback reports
Realising investment in your Human Capital
The Personal Development Report provides a comprehensive overview of an individual’s personality using selected competencies. Managers can review an employee’s strengths and limitations, facilitating learning and development conversations, and increasing self-awareness. The Feedback Report is designed to be given to candidates for their own information. It describes their personality profile against the aspects of personality selected for that specific role, highlighting strengths and potential areas for development.
Self awareness is the key to effectiveness
In this approach, an individual’s self-ratings of performance are compared to observer ratings from line managers, peers, direct reports or clients, based on the chosen competencies for that role. These performance ratings are considered against the background of candidate potential – the extent to which their personality is likely to facilitate performance. This all-round 360-degree perspective provides a sound basis for reviews, appraisals and personal development. This option requires one-day certification training.
Job analysis survey
If you don’t know what you’re looking for you’re not going to find it
It’s important to accurately identify the key competencies required for success in any role. Creativity? Decision making? Resilience? Our FREE Job Analysis Survey will help you determine the competencies critical to success. Managers, supervisors or individuals who have done the job or are familiar with it complete the survey and the report prioritises the competencies required and indexes them to show the relative importance of each.
Profile:Match2® measures potential, refocusing attention from what a candidate has done, to what they might be capable of.
This clip explores how by dividing each of the big five personality factors into two different components, Profile:Match2® allows you to make sophisticated distinctions between candidates, identifying precisely how their personality traits match onto your key competencies.
