WorkPlace Big Five Profile™


The WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ is based on the Five-Factor Model, the current gold standard of personality measurement by psychologists and researchers. It is one of the most psychometrically robust tools available in the market, based on years of research and strong psychometrics, with an average coefficient alpha of 0.83 that is among the highest of all assessments.

The assessment contains 93 online questions that can be completed in 15 minutes. It reveals an individual’s 5 personality supertraits and 23 subtraits. These traits simply and clearly explain work-related behaviors found in one’s communication styles and approaches to work, as well as preferences and energy for specific roles and tasks.

The Big Five personality can be used to understand the behavioral tendencies of individuals and their impact at work, so as to help individuals better accomplish workplace goals and objectives. It is a framework that creates awareness and understanding of employees in any organization, and serves as guidance in creating a powerful and valuable workforce. It also provides insights on how individuals can contribute to teams or lead others more effectively.
