Many organisations assert that people are their greatest asset, but a large majority of organisations fail to invest in understanding the motivations of their talent. Personality assessment tools can help to uncover developmental motivators of employees and this is critically important if the organisation is to secure a solid return on investment.
Having selected an employee, the organisation must then focus the attention on onboarding, training and career development. This is best achieved with a good insight on the developmental motivators of the employee. With this knowledge, the organisation is better positioned to tailor onboarding, training and help engage the employee on long term career development. Dr Giles Hirst, Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Chair of Leadership for the Australian National University, and Director of Product Development at Aperio discusses the use of the Aperio assessment tool in the context of understanding developmental motivators.
