The Talent Q portfolio of assessments can be used to measure skills, behaviors and abilities of people at work.

Dimensions: Personality assessment

Dimensions is an online personality questionnaire that measures behavioral preferences at work, focusing on how a person prefers to manage relationships with others, their approach to tasks and their sources of energy and motivation. Using this assessment can help improve the accuracy of hiring decisions by giving objective insights about an individual’s likely behavior at work

  • From a single completion of Dimensions, you can generate multiple reports to support a wide range of talent management tasks from recruitment through to development. These are applicable to different stakeholders, including HR managers and line managers, and there is also a free report for candidates.
  • With an inbuilt personality-based job profiler, individuals can be measured and rank ordered against the requirements of a specific role, considered for a lateral role change or assessed for potential at a senior level.
  • Dimensions can be mapped to your organisation’s competency framework, allowing you to generate customised reports.
  • Average completion time is 25 minutes.
  • Available in 41 languages.

Elements: Ability testing

Elements is a suite of online adaptive ability tests measuring verbal, numerical and logical reasoning skills designed specifically for use in graduate, professional, managerial and executive level roles. Each of the tests can be used in isolation or alongside other assessments.
  •  Elements uses the latest ‘adaptive’ testing technology, tailoring the difficulty of the next question presented based on the candidate’s previous response. This ensures the questions are at the optimum level of challenge and means there is no upper ability cap, enabling the candidate to demonstrate their true ability and potential.
  • There is no need to maintain a suite of ability assessments covering different ability levels, as all roles from supervisor upwards can use the same test.
  • Elements can be completed remotely in conjunction with a subsequent short adaptive verification test, so that the user is assured of the candidate’s true performance.
  • Average completion time is 12 minutes for verbal and numerical and 9 minutes for logical.
  • Available in 41 languages.
