Cracking the Workplace Personality Code new Blue Paper available from 4imprint

(Manchester, UK) – Workplace Personalities the latest Blue Paper from promotional items distributor 4imprint looks at the use of psychometric assessments as part of a firm’s overall HR and people policy. The free Blue Paper looks at the most widely used tests and assesses their effectiveness.

Many large professional service firms use assessments as part of the recruitment process and, like Eversheds solicitors, when considering candidates for promotion. Global accountancy practice Mazars also successfully uses psychometric assessments when conducting ‘people’ due diligence in preparation for a potential merger as well as it playing a part in their on-going teambuilding initiatives.

“Most people will come across these assessments in one form or another during the course of their career,” says Cheryl Jackson-Leafield, Marketing Manager of 4imprint UK & Ireland.  “This Blue Paper gives advice to companies considering using psychometrics to look at their current team and improve organisational success as well as giving some useful pointers for individuals facing such a test”.

Understanding your own workplace personality in relation to that of your colleagues creates a win-win environment where people feel respected and differences can be harnessed for the greater good rather than causing conflict.  It enables employees to leverage their strengths in the workplace, work co-operatively and feel valued.
