EVERYONE IN HIS/HER POSITION!
Employee selection and placing as well as individual job choice and career planning is based on the potential, abilities and interests of every individual. And so it should be! In reality it is somewhat different and the deciding factor is mostly where the greatest need for employees is or even blind chance.
Many people are unhappy in their job because they have to what their job profile and daily routine dictates, and not what they would like to do. They have work which they can carry out but not enjoy – because their personal interests and abilities remain unused.
Long-term studies show that it is far more advantageous for companies to place employees properly, and that the ratio between the best and worst possible performances in a job is 4:1. The double effect is clearly visible; the most suitable employees in the right position increase company profits in a very short space of time and enhance employee satisfaction. Isn’t it a pity that so many valuable employee resources remain untapped, and also that ones’ own true competences remain hidden?!
The good new is that regardless of whether you are in management or freelance, these hidden talents can be easily exposed using the widely popular tool of computer analysis. It gives you in a very short time an all inclusive and objective picture of your personality traits, abilities, interests and development potential. It also promotes self-reflection and the results allow a realistic self-appraisal and objectifies individual goals. It permits a comparison of self and outside perceptions, delivers also reassurance and self-confidence, but also shows blind spots and catch up areas.
In the selection of an appropriate potential analysis one must take into consideration on the one hand is’ scientific background as well as the obligatory comparison with a reference population, and also the similarly essential development and standardization of current data. Only so can the validity and precision of the procedures be measured, to obtain meaningful results The potential analysis is enhanced through an interview by a psychological consultant, who presents the computer generated – thus objective – results, and evaluates them with the participant and takes this as a basis for further planning.
The recognition and correct use of individual potential in work in every case leads to an increased level of motivation and performance, which is mirrored in the success of both individual and company. When people do what they like to do, then their job becomes their hobby, perhaps even their calling. That the consequent improvement of the individual’s quality of life contributes also to the good of the company needs no explanation.
