Ensuring that staff have complementary character strengths helps to achieve role-fit, and thus avoid the problems associated with role-misfit

The Ethos Behavioural Styles Questionnaire (S): Strengths

Strengths are the underlying behavioural characteristics which allow us to thrive in the correct environment. Strengths cover a wide range of different behavioural traits, and each person exhibits a different combination of integral strengths. When recruiting for strengths, you ensure that staff hold the key behavioural indicators which underpin performance, well-being, and employee satisfaction in the workplace.

The strengths questionnaire employs modern item response theory psychometric (IRT) modelling, the latest research findings in the field of behavioural assessment. It is designed to accurately measure the traits which underpin a person’s character strengths, both fairly and accurately, all while providing an exceptional candidate experience.
