While psychologists have identified many lists of values, there are certain values that seem most appropriate to the business and career environment.

The Workplace Motivators assessment measures the relative prominence of six basic motives in personality: Theoretical, Utilitarian, Aesthetic, Social, Individualistic and Traditional.

This classification is based on Eduard Spranger’s book, “Types of Men,” written in 1928. In 1931, Gordon W. Allport and Philip E. Vernon developed an assessment to measure the traits postulated by Spranger. The assessment was called the “Study of Values,” and has been widely used to provide insights into the motivation of a given individual.

These insights apply equally to men and women. Allport’s research indicates successful women and successful men have similar values and goals.

With a Workplace Motivators assessment you will discover:

• the “why” driving a person’s behaviour • ways to engage someone's inner drive • how to motivate and reward each person • how to make your team more effective

Pyschometric Profiling

Psychometric profiling is commonly used by organisations all over the world to help them identify the characteristics and working style of the individuals they employ.

In recruitment it is a very useful tool that enables the profiler to understand how an individual is likely to perform in the role. Equally, it enables the person completing the profile to identify their strengths and limitations and by understanding their own behaviour, the type of roles where they are likely to excel and functions where they are best suited.

Psychometric profiling tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals' mental capabilities and are typically used to measure a range of skills such as numerical, verbal, abstract, logical reasoning and personality traits.

The benefits of using profiling tools are that the results generated provide an accurate summary of a potential employee's skills and abilities.
