The Dimensions psychometric tool provides a powerful support to your recruitment and selection activity. The Dimensions tool accurately assesses an individual’s personality in relation to work and provides an array of output reports and profiles specifically designed to support your recruitment and selection decisions.
The Dimensions questionnaire allows you to create a tailored role match sheet based on a set of leadership competencies, and to measure your candidates against that role definition. You can then see easily where each candidate matches / doesn’t match your requirements.
The report then automatically generates a set of interview questions for each candidate designed to probe those aspects of their profile that don’t appear to meet your criteria. This cuts down on interview preparation time and ensures your interview questions are really well focused.
You can purchase a Dimensions report as a stand-alone service in my online shop (with a short telephone feedback session to help you to interpret and use the results).
Alternatively, I can assist you with the selection of staff for management appointments through the design of a selection event built around your competency framework. Working closely with your internal team I will review the job description and person specification for the vacancy and identify the qualities and competencies required. I will then design and facilitate an event to enable these qualities and competencies to be observed and assessed.
Possible selection event activities are likely to include:
- Completion of an appropriate psychometric profile (my preference is to use Dimensions)
- Completion of a written task based on analysis of data to be submitted in advance
- Face to face interview a using competence-based interview format with questions agreed in advance
- Preparation of a presentation based on the report mentioned above.
There are several practical things to consider so that the selection event itself runs smoothly and you can rely on me to manage all of this for you.
