How Our Assessment Works
Gain an accurate, bias-free assessment of employee potential with the OPQ.
Participants first answer a series of simple questions about their working preferences. This helps us understand which areas of the universal competency framework they are strongest in, and where they might require some development.
Next, we quickly and reliably match this understanding to a scientifically chosen profile, based on your hiring or development requirements and relying on more than 40 years of assessment experience.
You then receive a report on each candidate’s fit, potential, and developmental gaps, integrated seamlessly with your SHL talent acquisition or talent management solution and with your company’s existing applicant tracking system.
SHL’s Occupational Personality Questionnaire helps you make more informed talent decisions so you can consistently drive better business results.
