Criterion Questionnaires

Criterion personality questionnaires are designed to explore an individual’s tendencies and preferences within the workplace. Through extensive research with organisations into business critical roles, we have developed and refined two comprehensive off-the-shelf personality questionnaires:

The Criterion Core
21 scale questionnaire offering insight into typical preferences and tendencies for behaviours, feelings, values and motivations that are important in the workplace. Amongst others, completion allows you access to the Sales Potential and Team Types Reports

The Criterion Enhanced
30 scale questionnaire which builds on the Criterion Core, offering a deeper, more penetrating insight across a breadth of elements of personality. Amongst others, completion allows you access to the Leadership Report

Online psychometric tests

Our Criterion Workforce Personality Questionnaire is an additional tool available, specifically designed to assess personality areas recognised as important in blue collar, production and manufacturing roles.
