16pf® Competency Report

Measures the qualities and attributes needed for success in a particular role

The 16pf® Competency Report helps managers select the people they need to achieve their objectives for specific roles.

Based upon global research and years of experience, our model includes 20 competencies that are commonly used across organizations. You can either:

Generate 16pf Competency Reports for all 20 competencies, or Choose the ones that are essential for on-the-job success in specific role(s) within your organization and generate reports that focus on those competencies only (our 16pf Job Profiling Kit and our online 16pf Competency Selector can facilitate this task). When hiring, we also have research-based Representative Competency Models to guide you in identifying the competencies for your positions. We encourage you to examine the competencies in each model in light of the requirements for the particular position in your organization and adjust the model appropriately when selecting the final 6 to 8 competencies for your job.

Alternatively, we can work with you to create a custom report around a smaller set of organization-specific competencies, using either your existing competency model or a new one.

The 16pf® Questionnaire is a comprehensive measure of normal adult personality that assesses 16 personality dimensions and is based on more than 60 years of research. It is comprised of 185 multiple choice items and takes approximately 40 minutes to complete. It is suitable for both selection and development and is normed on a stratified random sample of more than 10,000 adults based upon the 2000 U.S Census.
