Are you getting the most out of your employees?

29 Apr 2016

The short answer is no, probably not.

Although genetically similar, people are fundamentally different due to the environments we are all exposed to, at present, in the past and even what we can see for ourselves in the future. Behavioural Profiling can help businesses understand what makes their people tick, firstly so they can identify the talent they need, and secondly to develop the talent they already have. This insight into the dynamics of people can encourage positive behavioural change and allow businesses to be confident in their decision making.

Hiring Talent

Behavioural profiling opens up the recruitment process, making it more scientific and transparent, helping businesses find exactly what they are looking for. This applies to all levels of experience, from Trainees to Managing Partners.

Developing Talent

In the current economic climate, it is essential to make the most out of the employees you already have. Behavioural profiling provides a targeted approach that allows every individual employee their own developmental pathway, depending on their respective strengths and weaknesses.

Retaining Talent

Retaining talent is hard for businesses of all shapes and sizes, and a continuous problem for many. Understanding the factors behind what makes an individual decide to stay or go can be key in assessing what influence business leaders can have in swaying the decision one way or the other. 


Phil Jepson, is an accredited behavioural profiler and we have used behavioural profiling in our own business since we set up in 2004.

Phil says “The tools that we use are not psychometric tests and don’t sort people into categories.  They are built on euro biology and recognise the unique make up of each person. We allow people to be individuals and treat them as such, everyone has their own set of circumstances that makes them who they are, which is where their true strengths lie. As a result, we can identify and mitigate against stress and toxic behaviours in the workplace; we can identify future business leaders and those with specific desirable talents; we can put together effective teams and inform business strategies; we can ensure the right candidates are selected throughout the recruitment process, and we can maximise developmental and training initiatives such as appraisals and mentoring programmes.”
