What is the Personal Profile Analysis?
The Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) psychometric assessment provides an accurate insight into how people behave at work, giving you a greater understanding of your candidates and an added layer of information that a CV cannot provide. The PPA takes a person just 8 minutes to complete and will immediately be able to answer questions such as: what are a candidate’s strengths and limitations? How do they prefer to communicate? Are they self-starters? And what motivates them? The PPA provides a wealth of information and there are 25 different reports available that give insight into a candidate’s behavioural profile, including Talent Selection, Management Strengths, Interviewers Guide and Onboarding.
Using Thomas Job, DATS Recruitment can help you identify the behavioural requirements of any job function to support you recruit the right people for the right job, identify development needs, restructure roles and redeploy talent. We understand that the most critical component of any recruitment and selection process is establishing the specifications of a job which is the standard that an applicant will be measured against in the role.
