Personality Questionnaires

How often do you hear the phrase ‘personality clash’ cited in reasons for the costly breakdown in employment relationships? Most employers hire on the basis of someone’s ability and fire on the grounds of personality, usually at considerable financial and emotional expense to the employer and employee.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Why Use Personality Questionnaires When Recruiting?

Managing the risks associated with making poor selection decisions can be readily achieved through the use of tried and tested measures of the behaviours associated with success in your business.

By selecting only the personality tests with a proven track record of being valid and reliable measures of personality, People Central add considerable value to the selection of new staff and development of existing staff in identifying:

  • Whether a candidate is likely to value and support your organisation's culture, competencies and aspirations?
  • How they are likely to interact with colleagues, clients, suppliers and other people?
  • How they should be managed and motivated?
  • How they are likely to deal with change, solve problems and make decisions?
  • What they are likely to add to team performance?
  • What personal development plans are required to get them from good to great performers?
  • How they are likely to deal with the stresses and strains of the job?

All our personality questionnaires can be administered online, enabling employers to easily assess candidates anywhere in the world.

Health & Safety Indicator (HSI)

With the introduction of New Zealand's Health & Safety at Work (2016) Act and similar Australian legislation aimed at managing workplace risks, an ever growing number of organisations are aiming to reduce the incidence of health and safety incidents and workplace accidents.

The Health & Safety Indicator (H&SI) assesses a range of ability and personality characteristics that represent an individual’s tendency towards safe behaviour in the workplace.

The H&SI is a combination of targeted personality and ability measures in one assessment which allows for the identification of health and safety risk factors. It includes an overall score as well as specific ability and personality scores. The ability components are timed whereas the personality components are not. Specific measures include:
