The Work Personality Index® assessment provides a clear framework for understanding the impact of personality on job performance. It helps you identify key motivators and behaviours – essential for hiring the right people, developing employees and supporting great leaders. The Work Personality Index® assessment only measures personality traits that are directly related to the work environment and on-the-job behaviours.

The Work Personality Index® assessment helps your organization manage talent by measuring candidate job-fit, development needs, career options and leadership potential.

Based on a model of 21 personality traits that measure distinct aspects of work behaviour, the Work Personality Index assessment describes an individual’s style in terms of job related strengths and weaknesses – giving you a complete picture of an individual’s work style. The reports provide valuable information to assist with selecting employees, team building, coaching, employee retention, leadership development and succession planning.
