What are the Winslow Reports?
The Winslow Reports Assessment suite is a leading edge psychometric survey system that has been developed over the last forty years by a distinguished panel of psychologists and business executives to measure behaviour and personality. The Winslow Report suite has been developed for three core areas:
Applicant selection – to ensure you have people that fit with the business needs.
Employee development – to enhance the performance of current employees.
Individual self improvement – to support people in career choice and development.
The Winslow Reports system is based around 24 pschological traits split into four core areas:
Self control traits
The Winslow Reports suite has been developed by business people for business people. It is one of the few psychometrics that complies with EEOC guidelines for use in selection processes in the USA, and it has built in validity to ensure that a truthful report is generated.
