Increase your hiring effectiveness!

In an effort to find our clients the best possible candidates, CPIBN values the use of assessments as part of our talent acquisition process. We understand that the search for quality employees has become increasingly difficult and that hiring the right person the first time is critical. With that reality in mind we utilize the Workplace Big Five Profile for selection and development of all levels of staff and for successful team building. It is one of the most current, valid and reliable means of assessing personality today.

This assessment relates to people’s personalities in their everyday jobs. Instead of using clinical or psychological terms like many current personality assessments, the WorkPlace Big Five uses work terms and work-related examples in its questions and reports. This will be the first time that the center uses the assessment in leadership development. Johan Naudé, a CCL Coaching Talent Manager says CCL selected the instrument for “its ease of use and accessibility to business leaders and managers.” “It’s a broad-based personality survey that covers the full spectrum of personality that is relevant in a work environment,” says Naudé. “It uses language that’s easily understood and allows program participants to make meaningful connections to other data that they receive in the program and it’s more manageable in a group debriefing setting.”

The WorkPlace Big Five Profile is based on the Five-Factor Model of Personality, which includes five personality supertraits and 23 subtraits that simply and clearly explain the work-related behaviors that all working people encounter daily in coworkers, employees, managers and colleagues. The instrument is used to ensure optimum employee-job-organization fit and to build successful teams and organizations, and is well researched and well-formulated with exceptional validity and reliability.
