We believe knowing what success looks like is the first step toward making impactful people decisions.
AbilityMap’s inbuilt profile tool allows you to accurately define the set of capabilities required for success in different roles or functions within your organisation.
How it Works
Using AbilityMap, a new Profile can be created in a number of ways:
Someone who knows the role well (a Line Manager or Hiring Manager) selects the capabilities they believe drive performance. Then, a rigorous prioritisation process ranks those capabilities in order of importance. The process takes 10-15 minutes.
A group of people who know the role well each select the capabilities they believe drive performance. Through combining the views of these experts, you end up with a ranked list of capabilities.
High Performer Profile
A group of employees who consistently perform within the role complete their Ability Imprints. Compiling this data, AbilityMap identifies the strongest, common capabilities across the group and priority ranks them.
Or, you can select from our growing Profile Library
Through input from leading industrial psychologists combined with data collected from customers using AbilityMap, we have compiled a library of success profiles for roles and functions across a broad range of industries.
Benefits of AbilityMap’s Profile Tool
Gives businesses a way to objectively determine the traits for individual success for any role
Built on AbilityMap's scientifically developed Capability Framework
Generates a report outlining high performance behaviours expected for each of the identified success capabilities
AbilityMap’s job profile tool is an effective and robust way for me to help hiring managers to pinpoint the capabilities they need. Going through the process gets customer buy-in and changes the whole recruitment conversation in a meaningful way.
Questions about the Ability Profile
No. The AbilityMap Imprint assessment is suitable for all levels of an organisation, regardless of technicality. From C-suite executives to specialists and customer service to trades, it covers the behavioural capabilities required at all levels in any role.
No. The assessment includes all capabilities in the framework, so you can compare each candidate’s results to multiple roles. Each role profile provides a lens of 8 capabilities to compare with candidates.
Yes. AbilityMap’s software is designed with flexibility in mind. It can be used for some, most or all of your employees and recruitment activities. For organisations already using assessments, most often among the more senior levels, AbilityMap provides an economical and efficient assessment option for the mid to lower tiers of an organisation. Its inbuilt results interpretation engine and reporting tools are designed with recruiters and managers in mind.
The questions cover many behaviours which are grouped into each capability, so the responses are more complex and comprehensive than a self-rating per capability. The rigorous science and algorithms that underpin the recommendations, along with the referencing of the candidate’s score against the norm group, mean there is no need for a peer or manager to validate individual results.
