Profiles Managerial Fit

Profile Managerial Fit documents
Profiles Managerial Fit™ (PMF) is a special report that utilizes data from the ProfileXT® to measure critical aspects of compatibility between managers and their employees. This report offers an in-depth look at one’s approach to learning, as well as six critical dimensions of compatibility with their manager: self-assurance, conformity, optimism, decisiveness, self-reliance, and objectivity.

Managers use this information for adapting their styles in order to get the most from each employee by improving communication, increasing engagement, satisfaction and productivity, and reducing employee turnover.

Why assess employees and managers?

People typically don’t quit their companies—they quit their bosses. During times of change in an organization, such as when hiring or restructuring, it is easy to overlook culture, chemistry and personal fit. Given the urgency to make difficult decisions, personnel decisions are made based on short-term need and factors that merely look good on paper.

However, once new people start working together, interpersonal issues are likely to surface. While a small degree of workplace conflict may be considered a sign of engaged employees, excessive and chronic conflict can be damaging, distracting, and costly.

The PMF gives your managers valuable information and insight on a person to help them be more effective, more productive, and to deliver consistent results.


How does the PMF™ assessment work?

Most of our clients who use the Profiles Managerial Fit report have already assessed their managers and employees with our ProfileXT® assessment. If this is the case, your Profiles International Client Service Professional will enable your administrator to run reports for your managers and their employees.

If you have not yet assessed your people with the ProfileXT, then they will take this assessment over the Internet—an HR administrator will simply forward a link to managers and employees. The assessment does not need to be monitored, so the candidate can take it from any computer with Internet access. The system instantly scores the assessment and informs the hiring managers where they can access the results.
