Developed with an emphasis on combining scientific rigour, valuable information, and ease of use, Dimensions is a flexible personality report for assessing key behaviours at work. It is a well-pedigreed tool constructed by Roger Holdsworth, one of the world's pioneers of employee assessment, and further development continues to ensure it remains a cutting-edge assessment tool. With just one questionnaire you can interpret collected data for an extensive range of applications to help make important talent decisions.

Amongst these applications, Dimensions offers solutions for recruitment, team building, identifying potential, succession planning, and people development. The system features a role profiling wizard which allows you to measure candidates against specific job requirements or role characteristics. It can easily be mapped to a competency framework, branded to reflect your corporate image, and integrated with applicant tracking and HR systems. It is ideal for multinational programmes as it offers assessments and reports in over forty languages.

To maximise the value of this assessment, we recommend using it with Propel, which enables and tracks goal setting and action planning after feedback.
