People Profiling Tools

Our personnel and associates are Certified Users of Thomas International’s tools - Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) and Test for Selection & Training (TST). Others bring expertise of other tools including SHL, Myers Briggs and Belbin. These tools help motivate, stimulate and encourage people in an organisation by raising self awareness and confidence. The tools provide an objective assessment of candidates enabling employers to understand and develop the full potential of existing personnel and are used for recruitment, selection and management development purposes.

The Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) gives greater awareness of individuals work behaviour preferences based around the DISC model - Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. The tools for Selection and Training measures “Fluid Intelligence”. We utilise other tools which assess where a person perceives themselves to sit within a team environment - for example, are they the driver, the investigator, the worker, the creative thinker?

Utilisation of these tools gives individuals and employers a better insight into areas of strength and preference.

Personal Success Factor Interviewing

Personal Success Factor Interviewing has also been referred to as Competency or Behavioural Based Interviewing. This is an interview style which draws out of candidates the information that an employer really wants to know about given work situations. Find out WHAT someone has actually done and HOW it was done. Our Consultants have been using PSF Interviewing Techniques over several years to help ascertain internal and external candidates suitability for a specific role or organisation.

Personal Success Factors are those underlying characteristics which are casually related to “superior performance” in a job. It's a style of interviewing used so that a candidate can best communicate how they would demonstrate certain behaviours, skills or competencies in the work place; by answering questions about how they have reacted to and dealt with previous work-place situations. By using past experience a potential employer can predict future behaviour by eliminating misunderstandings, preventing personal impressions and remaining objective and by reducing the candidate's ability to "fake".
Traditional job descriptions are now quite out-dated. Most organisations will analyse a role by breaking it down into key Personal Success Factors. For example the Personal Success Factors of a General Manager may be Planning and Organising, Innovation, Personal Drive, Problem Analysis and Decision Making.
The use of Personal Success Factors for recruitment, AND appraisals will help ensure that people sit in the right roles and are given the right help to develop themselves and the organisation to the full potential.
