OPQs – helping you win the ‘war for talent’

It has often been said that employees are a company’s greatest asset – a competitive advantage. Even during this current crisis, more companies are paying attention to their position in the employment market and what they can do to attract and retain the best talent. In this ‘war for talent’ each and every company needs to stand out with a strong Employee Value Proposition (EVP) to ‘hook’ the up and coming talent. But, how do you know what ‘good’ looks like and how can you be sure that the one that looks good on paper will be an excellent fit for your company?

Psychometric profiling such as the Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) can help. Using it to profile your star performers or most influential managers can help you understand the type of personality that fits in your organisation. An online questionnaire is completed and from that a report can help you identify the areas of preference that make up the type of personality that works well in your company. Further reports can also help identify leadership potential in new and existing employees.

Are you intrigued to see how it works in practice? Have you been considering psychometric profiling but not sure where to start? Or maybe, you just don’t have the funds in your budget to test it out. Now is the time for action!

This is the perfect opportunity to see how the OPQ works in practice, maybe undertake it yourself so you can see how much of a true reflection it is of your own personality? Feel free to give me a call to discuss it further on 01473 359159.
