Talent Q Dimensions

Understanding behavior at work

Overview

The Talent Q Dimensions personality questionnaire allows you to assess a person’s likely behaviors at work, helping you to make better, more informed decisions throughout the employee lifecycle.

Assessing personality has been proven to be an effective predictor of performance at work. This is because we tend to focus more on the kind of tasks we prefer engaging with, and as a consequence we become much more skilled in these areas.

The Talent Q Dimensions personality questionnaire is based on robust science, is relevant to the business environment and is easy to use for the candidate and HR professional alike. The candidate only needs to complete the questionnaire once but the data can be used throughout the employee lifecycle – from recruitment and selection, through to development and identification of high potential.

How it works

Dimensions is an online personality questionnaire that tells you how people are likely to behave at work – how they like to manage their relationships with others, how they approach tasks, and where they get their energy and motivation.

The questionnaire consists of 160 statements about behavior at work. The candidate indicates how true each statement is. The questionnaire only takes around 25 minutes to complete.

Unique to Dimensions is the Role Match Profile functionality which is designed to help you assess the level of fit between a candidate and a given role profile, identifying potential areas of risks that can then be explored further.  Role match is particularly useful in recruitment sifting and can be used in conjunction with Elements.

Dimensions can measure candidates against the requirements for a specific job, a change in roles or the potential to move to a more senior level. Once completed, the assessment generates user-friendly reports that can be used to inform a wide range of talent management decisions.
