Occupational Personality Questionnaire® (OPQ®)

The Occupational Personality Questionnaire® (OPQ®) provides in-depth information on how individuals fit within a work environment, how they will work with others and their performance potential against job competencies.

The OPQ® can make a major contribution to achieving person-to-job fit by providing line managers with business-relevant reports into the strengths and development areas of applicants.

By assessing personality at the candidate selection stage, many organisations are reaping significant benefits by saving time and money. Increases in productivity, and cost savings due to more efficient and effective candidate selection are just some of the benefits possible.

The OPQ can also be used as a development tool by providing an indication of the candidate’s perception of their preferred behavioural style at work and likely performance against important job competencies.

The OPQ can also be used in the following development contexts:

  • Training Needs Analysis and Individual Management Development
  • Career Counselling
  • Succession Planning
  • Team Building and Development
  • Organisational Change
  • Research

Time required to complete: 45 minutes (although untimed) plus debriefing
