Strengths Profile Assessment

How Can Strengths Help Workplaces?

Research now shows that knowing and using our strengths helps us feel energised and engaged - this counteracts burnout and poor performance in the workplace. Realising our strengths and the energy that fuels them helps to achieve business outcomes with more speed and less workplace issues.

In a survey of 1.2 million employees, in 22 organisations, across 7 industries in 45 countries. 90% of the respondents studied noticed performance increases, such as:

  • 9% increase in sales

  • 15% increase in profits

  • 4% increase in customer engagement

  • 10% lower turnover in low-turnover organisations

  • 46% lower turnover in high-turnover organisations

  • 6% increase in engaged employees

  • 37% fewer safety incidents

(ref: The 2016 Gallup State of the Global Workforce)

A strengths-based management approach is proven to improve employee wellbeing and boost productivity.

strengths profile allows us to have workplace relationships that do not stress but get the best from teamwork and out of our relationships in the workplace.

Strengths Profile is a world-leading strengths tool that changes the way we assess, develop and leverage talent in people. Strengths Profile is built from a decade of theoretical and empirical research in positive psychology and has been taken by more than 300,000 people around the world.

Designed by Professor Alex Linley and his team at Capp in the UK, Strengths Profile is used by leading organisations including Schneider Electric, Avery Dennison, Aviva, Oracle and Ernst & Young.

The Strengths Profile tool is unique and distinct from traditional one-dimensional strengths tests, assessing 60 strengths across three dimensions of energy, performance and use. This pinpoints people’s results in four quadrants:

  • Realised Strengths are the things they find energising, perform well, and use often

  • Learned Behaviours are the things they have learned to do well, yet do not energise them

  • Weaknesses are the things they find it hard to do well and find draining

  • Unrealised Strengths are the things they find energising and perform well, yet don’t use so often

This model provides a positive platform for development, enabling people to design strategies to maximise growth potential, minimise weaknesses and optimise performance and wellbeing.
