Orpheus is a work-based measure of personality, developed entirely in the UK. Using it will provide you with a comprehensive measure of a candidate's personality, assessing traits that will contribute to an individual's performance at work.
An Orpheus report will answer the most important questions about both potential and current employees:
- How will potential employees integrate into the team?
- How do they cope in stressful and demanding environments?
- Can they think for themselves?
- Will they really FIT into your organisation?
Orpheus may also help to increase your retention of staff by helping to increase an individual's fit to the role and by choosing people who will understand and respect your organisation's values.
Orpheus is based on the well-established 'Big Five' model, currently recognised as the most stable and well-defined structure of personality.
Specifically, Orpheus provides measures along the following dimensions:
The measures provided by Orpheus have been standardised on a wide-ranging, UK working population and add value to the processes of selection, team-building and personal development.
In addition to the 'Big Five' scales, Orpheus also provides an assessment of individual strengths and styles along the following dimensions:
Orpheus also identifies irregular response patterns, such as 'answering in a socially desirable way' or 'faking good'. This helps to ensure a more accurate interpretation of scores.
Online questionnaire and electronic reports now available
Orpheus is now available for online completion. A combined profile and narrative report will be generated by the platform. Paper questionnaires will still be available and for those wishing to use them a bureau service will be available. This service will involve inputting the scores and the provision, by email, of the report. The cost of the questionnaires are not included in the bureau service price.
