Big Five Profile is a personality assessment measuring five major personality traits based on the Five Factor model. It can be applied to all individuals, including young people.
The Five Factor model is a classical model in psychology and widely recognised as a benchmark in the analysis of personality. It highlights the main personality traits that define and differentiate people from an early age. These traits remain relatively stable throughout a person's lifetime, and are therefore unlikely to change making the Big Five Profile an assessment suitable for individuals of all ages, including adolescents.
The characteristics identified by the Big Five Profile facilitates the understanding of how individuals function in relation to both others and their environment.
To simplify your recruitment decisions, you can define a competency referential specific to your organisation’s roles. This will enable you to then find the candidate who is the best fit for the job.
