A behavioural profile indicates how people are likely to approach problems, interact with others, and respond to the pace of the environment and its rules and procedures.
Behavioural profiles provide employers with detailed information about an individual’s strengths, weaknesses, communication style and their motivators.
Understanding an individual's behavioural profiles can lead to:
- Improved communication
- Better team cohesion
- Improved performance and effectiveness.
The Onetest Behavioural Profile (OBP) is a behavioural assessment that provides an indication of how a person is likely to behave and communicate in a work role.
This information can be used to identify individuals whose behavioural style matches the requirements of the position and how well they will fit into an existing team. For existing employees, the information from this assessment can provide insight into an individual’s behavioural strengths and areas for development to help manage their performance and motivate them effectively.
The Onetest Behavioural Profile utilises Marston’s DISC model (1928) to examine the extent to which an individual’s behaviour typifies four styles:
- Dominance – approach to problems and challenges
- Influencing – approach to social situations
- Steadiness – approach to pace of the environment
- Compliance – approach to rules.
There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers in this assessment. Responses are analysed to identify how strongly each of the four behavioural styles are represented in the individual. An individual’s unique behavioural profile needs to be considered in the context of the specific job requirements.
