Testing tools

PeopleTools develops testing tools to uncover and unfold the potential of managers and employees. Through a coherent system of personality tests and cognitive testing tools, we offer a knowledge-based foundation for both recruitment and development. The tools are based on evidence-based personality theories, including Hexaco and Big Five, and create highly accurate results with high validity and reliability.

We regularly hold certifications in both Jutland and Zealand. See the calendar here.

We also offer games and HR tools that can be used for both team and leadership development. These do not require certification and you can find out more about them here.

Why use testing tools?

There is evidence that testing and profiling tools help increase the likelihood of a person succeeding in a job.

For a company or organization to be competitive, it’s important to get the right people on board and make sure they have the opportunity to perform at their very best. This places great demands on the HR department to find employees whose professional and personal skills fit – both in relation to the position, the team and the organization as a whole – and also to strengthen the potential of employees and allow them to develop, both professionally and personally. The purpose of using occupational psychology profiling tools is to ensure the best possible use of human resources in companies in order to achieve better results.

There’s a reason why profile tools are so popular. They are an essential part of any HR department’s toolbox. Whether used for recruitment, team building, development, performance reviews or optimization, the use of profiling tools helps make HR processes knowledge-based and value-adding.

By using profile tools, you create better conditions for unlocking the potential between company and employee. The profile tools create a shortcut to getting to know a person – to understand a person’s preferred work behaviors, strengths and limitations/challenges, communication style, and what motivates them.

What can you use profile tools for?

When companies and organizations use profiling tools, they gain a common language and frame of reference that can contribute to and optimize their HR processes. In hiring situations, for example, it can help clarify which competencies are desired in the position and what to focus on and ask about during the interview.

What makes PeopleTools’ profile tools unique is that they are dialog-based. We don’t believe you can put people into boxes – there are no right or wrong answers, only preferences. Therefore, the use of profiling tools is not an “end in itself”. The profile tools, on the other hand, should be seen as a tool to help structure an open and equal dialog.

The profile tools can also be used in development and optimization contexts, whether it’s for the individual employee, manager, team or organization. By gaining insight into your own, each other’s and collective strengths and weaknesses, you can construct development programs with different purposes, such as how employees utilize their strong and weak skills, how managers handle their teams in the most appropriate way, or how high-performing teams are put together in the best possible way.

The profile tools can be used both as a development tool, where you go very in-depth and ask questions - and it can also be used to create an overview when recruiting.
