The PPA XL is designed for employees, recruiters and HR specialists who want to know:"is this the right man/woman for the job?"

PPA XL offers the opportunity to obtain the Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) with at least 30 areas for attention (XL options) for an employee or applicant, with the help of a full online assessment, to gain an understanding of the work behaviour and personal traits that this person can be expected to exhibit.

Frequently asked qustions

Is a PPA XL necessary?

With the help of a PPA XL, you can make an objective choice when hiring staff, thereby preventing rash decisions and saving you a great deal of money by not employing the wrong person.

What is the benefit of a PPA XL?

A PPA gives you a reliable idea of your candidate’s behaviour on the shop floor. You can check for yourself whether the candidate is able to make the best possible use of his or her talents within the position. This will turn out to be a valuable addition to the letter of application, CV and interview. If someone is able to use their talents effectively in the position, that person will perform better.

Is a PPA XL also useful for my current employees?

Definitely. The PPA gives an amazingly good insight into the question as to whether someone is in the right job. By purchasing the PPA, positions may be switched internally to improve quality on the shop floor. It may therefore be the case that someone who works in the accounting department, for example, is actually much better off in a position with more customer contact. It may also be the case that a line manager doesn’t have any line management qualities.

What is the difference between the PPA and the PPA XL?

The regular PPA always contains the PPA report and a summary for the candidate as well as graphs and interview guidelines (intended for the line manager). The PPA XL is made of 30 specific areas for attention that you can select yourself when you place your order. The graphs will also be added. In both cases, we will also send summarised instructions on reading the graphs.

How should I read the D.I.S.C. graphs?

We send general concise information with the graphs, which explains the way in which the graphs should be read. It is fairly obvious how the graphs should be read. In the event of uncertainty, you can contact us for further information. Our downloads page contains a diagram of the various D.I.S.C. profiles.
