Motivate and Retain Your Employees
Every person is motivated in a different way, so it’s important to realize that people are engaged in different ways as well. There are three questions you must ask when evaluating employees whose performance is beneath their potential:
Can they do the job?
The PROFILES XT® measures Learning Index, which indicates a person's learning, reasoning, and problem solving approach. By understanding the person's learning index, you can better understand whether or not they are able to do the job. If they are not able to do the job, they are less likely to be engaged and motivated.
How will the person do the job?
The PROFILES XT® measures behavioural traits: energy level, assertiveness, sociability, manageability, attitude, decisiveness, accommodating, independence, and objective judgment. If you can understand how a person will do the job, you can determine whether or not the job description will complement the person's personality.
Will the person want to do the job?
The PROFILES XT® also measures occupational interests. The six occupational categories are enterprising, financial/admin, people service, technical, mechanical, and creative. A person may be capable of doing a job and may do it well, but that does not mean they want to do the job. If a person does not enjoy doing a particular job, he will immediately become disengaged and unmotivated.

Employee Performance Development
The PROFILES PERFORMANCE INDICATOR™ will reveal your people's behavioral tendencies. Once you understand tendencies, you can determine how you will motivate and engage the employee. Research has shown that behavioral characteristics can be grouped together in four major divisions or styles. People with similar styles tend to exhibit behaviourial characteristics common to that style. All people share these four styles in varying degrees of intensity.
The PROFILES PERFORMANCE INDICATOR™ is an "everybody wins" system that pays big dividends. The assessment is frequently used in training situations to resolve issues involving:
