As part of the PPMA offer for this meeting Osbourne Thomas are offering their profiling tool out free to all attendees. Please see the information below.

Over the past 18 months Osborne Thomas have been profiling HR teams.  In total there has been over 340 people who have gone through this exercise

Their research team has gathered information from HR teams and CIPD to look at HR for the Future.   They then took the results and mapped them to show any differentials between the expectations of HR teams.

They are opening this research up to the East of England PPMA.

What are the objectives:

  • To identify the personal qualities required of successful HR teams
  • To use psychometric tools to understand the individual’s own strengths and development areas
  • To use psychometric tools to look at individual motivation and fit for HR of the future
    For individuals to identify their own development needs
  • To look at what future recruitment needs will look like

In order to do this they are utilising 2 tools, and need each individual to complete Dimensions and Drives psychometric tools. They then map the findings as a group and present this overview to you.  Additionally they also produce reports for each individual to refer to at the end of the session.

They will also show the results of the 340 people who have already completed the profiling and discuss any areas of differential/interest against East of England PPMA group.

After booking your place you will receive an email from Osborne Thomas with links to the profiling tests.  Each test should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete.  They need to receive these back as soon as possible in order to do the analysis for the event on the 20 September.
