As part of our Job Readiness training all graduates complete an i3 profile assessment and receive personal feedback on their unique set of indicators. This profiling tool is a valuable gauge of individuals’ instinctive characteristics and makeup. The order and dominance, particularly of the top three indicators, is unique to every person and as such gives insight into the individual’s natural tendencies and flair as well as the work environment that he/she is best suited to.
Understanding these can dramatically enhance the way employers identify, integrate, manage and develop talent. At TZN we use these to better place the right candidates at the right businesses, but we would encourage you as a potential employer to familiarise yourself with these too as you review the candidates put forward to you and seek to develop the individuals on your team.
Here is a brief summary of the 7 indicators. It is worth noting that there is no right or wrong set of indicators and it is best to consider the top three indicators, as well as the order and proximity of these to each other. It is the relationship of these three that best describes the individual and his/her preferences.
