WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ Trait Report

Take a look at the features that make the WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ Trait report unique.

Trait Variance

The Trait Variance feature prompts participants to investigate when and how they might consider adjusting behaviors in different contexts and situations to better embrace team dynamics, organize work for greater effectiveness, and enhance communication. It’s also a great tool for precisely understanding candidate fit.

Making Meaning

Simply assigning a label or providing a report doesn’t necessarily help individuals gain insight into what makes them tick. Our clients often comment that the “Making Meaning section of the Trait report is especially valuable. It jump-starts reflection to help participants draw lines between their scores and their work behaviors, and to understand the ways these behaviors relate to their workplace roles and tasks.

Trait Energy

The “What Energizes Us?” section helps individuals understand the connection between their personality and certain behaviors and situations that they find naturally energizing or draining. Participants often have “aha moments” where they can point to specific situations with a better understanding.
