Enhanced Job Profiling with MAPP Assessment

Enhanced Job Profiling with MAPP Assessment: A Step-by-Step Guide to Optimal Candidate Matching

Job profiling is crucial in ensuring a perfect match between a candidate and a role. It goes beyond assessing skills; it involves understanding what motivates and drives individuals to excel in certain positions. This guide will delve into how to utilize the MAPP (Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential) Assessment for creating effective job profiles, focusing on proven performers.

Understanding Your Profiling Options with MAPP

Our system offers three distinct methods for crafting a motivational profile for job roles:

  1. Copy ONET Profile: Use the U.S. Department of Labor’s ONET Database as a starting point. It provides detailed profiles for a wide array of jobs.
  2. Nearest Neighbor: Ideal when you have an outstanding employee and want to find a similar profile. This method requires the MAPP results of one exceptional performer.
  3. Composite Method: This is highly recommended for roles that are well-established in your organization. It involves using the MAPP profiles of your top five performers in that role.

Maximizing Accuracy with the Composite Method

The Composite method stands out for creating the most detailed and accurate job profiles:

  1. Select Top Performers: Identify five individuals who excel and are most satisfied in the role.
  2. Conduct MAPP Assessments: Have these top performers complete the MAPP assessment to analyze their motivations and preferences.
  3. Aggregate Data: Our system combines these five profiles to create a well-rounded motivational job profile.

Exploring Alternative Approaches

  • Nearest Neighbor: Best for unique roles or when replicating the success of a singular exceptional employee.
  • ONET Database: Useful for new roles or when initial guidance on motivational requirements is needed.

The Essence of Job Profiling

Remember, the goal is to match not just skills but also intrinsic motivations. This ensures greater job satisfaction, performance, and retention.

Why MAPP Stands Apart

The MAPP Career Assessment focuses intensely on intrinsic motivations and personal potential. It differs from traditional profiling tools that might prioritize skills or experience. By delving into the innate preferences and drives of individuals, the MAPP Assessment provides a deeper, more holistic view of what type of person is best suited for a role. When you combine this with the insights from your top performers, you create job profiles that are not only precise but also highly effective. Aligning a candidate's inherent motivations with the job's demands leads to increased satisfaction, enhanced performance, and reduced turnover. The MAPP Career Assessment is therefore an invaluable tool for insightful, modern recruitment strategies.
