Talent acquisition and talent development are two primary applications for personality tests in the workplace.

A business can use personality assessments to determine if candidates have the key personality characteristics to be successful in a job and if they fit company culture. Assessments can also be used to uncover performance risks, improve interview techniques, and compare candidates’ side by side.

In industries that have a high risk of injuries and death, such as construction, oil and gas, safety assessments can be used for preselection and development. This allows companies to hire the right people and to develop a culture of occupational safety. Our safety assessments and reports are used to create ongoing safety development plans to minimise workplace accidents, improve training, recognise and repair safety related gaps and injury costs.


Personality assessments can encourage employees to take proactive steps to improve performance and help employees avoid career derailment.

How can businesses use personality assessments to improve performance?

Your people will ultimately determine your business success.

At NBPeople we believe that all talent can be nurtured and with self-awareness, effort and persistence, employees can develop and improve. It is vital that people understand the difference between the way they see themselves and the way they are seen by their peers, managers, and direct reports.

NBPeople’s global development solutions use a combination of diagnostics, such as personality assessment, multi-rater/360, and our coaching services to build capability and performance from graduates to high potentials and senior leaders. Our solutions cater to individuals and teams within any organisation.

NBPeople selection solutions are tailored to your organisation to reduce staff turnover, increase engagement and productivity, lower selection costs and maximise performance.

Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses… on your powers, instead of your problems.

Why is coaching continuity critical to your business success?

Aristotle noted “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”. 


Is personality ‘plastic or plaster’?

Many believe that to change your personality requires a lot of effort, dedication, and determination. It is, therefore, more visible and realistic that we change our behaviour. By understanding yourself you can begin to change and control your behaviour so that you can achieve your desired goals.

Personality Assessments help you understand yourself.

Completing your NBPeople personality assessment program tools you with the knowledge you need to start changing your behaviour in the right direction. It is then critical to continue modifying and calibrating your behaviour so that you are on the right track. Follow up sessions keep you on the right track.


Follow up sessions hold you accountable, ensure that your goals are always top of mind and that any bad habits creeping in are quickly dealt with before they take hold and start to sabotage any progress you have made.
