Psychometric Profiling & Assessments

Personality and behavioural profiling in the work place provides an accurate insight into how people behave at work.

Businesses use behavioural profiling to gain a greater level of certainty in their recruitment and development programmes as well as succession planning.

These types of assessment look at how people behave at work and answer questions such as:

  • What motivates them?
  • What are their strengths and limitations?
  • What is their preferred communication style?
  • How do they interact with their colleagues and team members?
  • Are they modifying their preferred behaviour to adapt to their current job?
  • How do they behave under pressure?
  • Are they showing any frustrations in the workplace?
  • What management style will get the best out of them?

At Acumen 360° we have the capability to administer a range of psychometric tools through our team of expert analysts.
The psychometric assessments and tools  recommended and used by us include:

  • Build productive working relationships
  • Select and develop high-performing teams
  • Raise self-awareness and personal effectiveness
