Personality Assessments

We offer a selection of personality-based assessments that are intended to assist auditors and other professionals in an organization to better understand your strengths and weaknesses. Unlike examination results that have a pass/fail result, the results from these assessments are used to better understand one self and may be used to develop individual performance improvement plans.

The suite of Personal Attribute Assessments contributes to a cost effective personnel management tool that has the potential to lift an organization’s performance through the recruitment, selection and development of staff and teams.

Please note that fees are associated with each assessment. Details will be provided upon registration.

PAAS Master®

PAAS Master® is designed to assess an individual’s ability to demonstrate the personal attributes or behaviours (ISO 19011:2011, clause 7.2.2) expected of auditors. The attributes were determined following extensive national and international research and interview with the aim of determining what, in terms of personal attributes, separates the more effective and efficient auditors.

If you are applying for personal certification, please contact your Exemplar Global Scheme Examiner regarding registering for this assessment. Please do not register here.

Risk Type Compass®

Exemplar Global have partnered with Psychological Consultancy Limited to conduct a job analysis survey in connection with the Risk Type Compass® assessment. The result is an auditor-specific Risk-Type assessment report.

The Risk Type Compass® is a personality based assessment focusing on differences in the way individuals perceive and handle risk and make decisions. Based on a robust and consensual core of global psychological research, it places individuals into one of eight easy to understand Risk Types.

Relevant across all industry sectors, the Risk Type Compass® has wide relevance within banking/finance, coaching, consulting, manufacturing, insurance and energy sectors. It pin-points differences in risk awareness and instinctive responses to risk that have important implications from the boardroom to the shop floor; for individuals, teams and throughout the organization. At the wider organisational level, it contributes to risk landscaping and risk culture surveys.
