Selecting, promoting or developing your people is not an exact science. It can be hard. Adding profiling provides some objectivity to the process and can help you make better decisions.
Thomas International is my preferred supplier of online profiling and assessment tools. They are quick, easy and accurate, and TSHR is licensed to supply, analyse and debrief on the following tools.
Talk to me about your needs and I can tell you whether profiling is the right approach, and which online tool is most appropriate.
With the Thomas PPA assessment, it takes around 8 minutes to obtain an accurate insight into how your people operate in the work environment. I typically recommend The PPA Profile for recruitment and promotion selection and helping to identify training and development needs.
