Corporate Psychometrics

TBC uses a variety of psychometric tests in a variety of corporate contexts. Examples of some of the constructs measured by our functional corporate psychometrics include but are not limited to:

Emotional intelligence

Such a measure looks at an individual’s ability to accurately distinguish emotions in themselves and others, managing and understanding emotions, and ultimately using emotions to facilitate thinking processes. Such a measure can accurately predict functionality and productivity at work, in one’s personal life at home, and at school.

Leadership profiles

Such measures look at an individual’s capacity to think innovatively in the pursuit of personal and occupational goals. Such measures assess leaders’ (or potential leaders) skills, and provide a framework from where they can accurately improve. The effective leadership competencies measured typically includes areas such as: Interpersonal Skills; Managing Change; Leadership; Planning & Organizing; Results Orientation.

Transformational leadership tendencies

Transformational leadership is typically represented by constructs such as: performance; communication; empowerment; empathy; motivation; commitment; feedback; achievement. Transformational leadership is positively linked with customer satisfaction, higher employee wellness, satisfaction and commitment, and improved organizational productivity. Individuals’ inclination towards such a style is measured.

Management

Alongside leadership, management assessments form an integral part of developing and selecting key role-players in a business. Constructs such as leading & deciding, strategic & creative thinking, relating & supporting, developing & changing, implementing & improving, and communicating & presenting are measured in order to do this effectively.

Motivation

Such measures assess what an individual is looking for in their ‘ideal job’, and an indication of how far there existing job fulfills these. Including the measurement of constructs such as control, challenge, rewards and relationships, such measures of motivation accurately reflect an employee’s drive, commitment, and performance.

Personality

Personality assessments can provide an insight into people’s approaches and behaviors in their workplace. Typically these assessments are used as part of recruitment in order to select individuals suited to a particular organization, as well as for development of employees within a business. Such personality assessments measure the constructs of: openness to change conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism /emotional stability and have implications for job performance, motivation, absenteeism, and job satisfaction.
