Psychometric & L&D Services
MVP provides people assessments and associated consultancy services to empower business leaders to transform the performance of their teams and individuals and deliver an immediate impact to their organisation.
We help you recruit, retain, develop and manage your people. We will give you insight into your staff; what motivates them, their core strengths and limitations and their potential. We will add a high level of certainty to all of your people-related decisions.
“We see our suite of psychometric assessments and L&D services as business-critical tools in the modern world. They help to eliminate bias and improve recruitment, diversity, development, and retention.”
Rachel Farina, Head of Learning & Development
The assessments we provide are extremely straightforward to understand and quick to use, with rapid results. They are supplied via our partner, Thomas International, which has been at the forefront of assessment innovation for 30 years, providing assessments in 56 languages with a presence in over 60 countries.
Why use psychometric testing?
Improve performance of new and existing staff.
Understanding the behavioural profile and abilities of your members of staff allows you to manage them more effectively, supporting and improving them in areas they find challenging with targeted coaching and training.
Better decisions. Minimise bad hires.
“..recruiting people solely on the basis of a structured interview has, on average, a success rate of 25%” Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)
Whereas research suggests that the use of the Thomas International assessment programme, combined with a structured interview and appropriate reference checks, will improve hiring accuracy to around 75%."
Promote the right people.
In many ways, promoting somebody can be like making a new hire. Just because somebody is a fantastic sales person, they will not necessarily be a great sales manager. By understanding the behavioural requirements of the role and the behaviour and aptitudes of your people you can be far more confident that promotions will be successful.
There are multiple applications for the psychometric services we offer and a wide range of benefits from using them for your business. The deeper the understanding of the assessments and how they can be applied within your business, the greater the benefit.
Beyond the one-to-one feedback and training services we provide, there are a number of targeted workshop sessions that can be used to develop and deepen understanding, improve communication and promote teamwork around your organisation. Some examples of the workshops that we run are:
- Introduction and overview of PPA - *Promotes awareness of the product, a common language and understanding
- Individual Profiles – perceptions and misperceptions - *Promotes inclusivity, better communication and highlights PPA as a tool for self-improvement
- Teams – strengths and limitations - *Opportunity to unite teams toward a common goal and improve communication, appreciate diversity and ultimately improve productivity/efficacy

“A thoroughly professional and supportive team that invest time in understanding the goals of their clients at the front end of the search process and then carry that approach through to placing the right people in the best roles. ”
Frank Evans, International Logistics Manager
“I found myself increasingly dismayed at the way many recruiters were dealing with candidates during the lock-down and subsequent easing of restrictions. I therefore found Lisa to be a breath of fresh air among her peers, with regular updates and calls to discuss the ongoing process, and feedback from the client. Ultimately, this resulted in an offer that I was absolutely delighted to accept. I could not have done this without Lisa's advice, encouragement and overall management of the process. I would comprehensively recommend Lisa to any candidate or client - a thorough brief, a well-managed process, and a lovely person to boot. ”
