A Success Profile is a blueprint for success that identifies the key Knowledge, Skills, Behavioral Styles, and experience an individual will need to be an effective leader in your organisation. Each piece of Knowledge, Skill, Behavior, or Experience is broken down into a group of behaviors called a competency. Through breaking down success into observable behaviors it allows individuals and people leaders within a business to make informed and objective evaluations of an individual’s suitability for a given role.
Unlike traditional Position Descriptions that only provide a list of job-related duties, a Success Profile provides a holistic, objective, and shared understanding of high performance. In addition to informing recruitment decisions, the Success Profile can help your business train and on-board new team members by providing an objective evaluation of the individuals strengths and weaknesses.
JK Personnel partners with a range of leading psychometric assessment specialists to provide your business with in depth objective insights into a candidates suitability for a role within your organisation. Our Executive Search Talent Solution includes the SHL Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) for up to three high potential candidates. The OPQ measures 32 specific personality characteristics, and provides you with comprehensive and evidence based understanding of how aspects of an individuals behavioral style will affect his or her performance in the workplace.
The SHL OPQ helps you to identify the best-fit applicants for a given role, and make the right hiring decision. Our qualified team of Organisational Development professionals will work with you to unpack each candidates psychometric assessment results and reveal powerful insights.
