Learn What You Really Need to Know About How a Candidate Might Fit Within Your Organization

The Gordon Personal Profile Inventory helps you identify the degree to which your candidates possess the personality-based competencies necessary for success in a job.  Each job or role requires a unique combination of personality characteristics for optimal performance. The GPPI measures 9 important and universal traits that can help you make the right hire for virtually any position.

Use the Gordon Personal Profile to:

  • Discover whether a candidate’s personality traits will be an asset to your organization
  • Identify desirable qualities such as dependability, attention to detail, diligence, innovation, conscientiousness, adaptability, analytical thinking, and stress tolerance
  • Reduce turnover and increase productivity when you hire individuals with the personal style that best meets your needs
  • Complement information garnered from the candidate’s resume, interview, and references
  • Occupation Applications Include: Accounting, Administrative, Computer/IT, Customer Service, Financial Services, Engineering, Health Care, Industrial/Manufacturing, Management, Retail, Sales and more
  • Use both the Profile Section and the Inventory Section to form a complete picture of a candidate’s personality.
  • Combine administration of the Gordon Personal Profile-Inventory (GPP-I) with the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal to learn more about an applicant’s potential for success than you can learn from an interview and resume.
