The MAPP Match is a simple process that involves creating motivational profiles tailored to specific job roles and then aligning individuals with these roles based on their intrinsic motivations. The fundamental premise is that when a person's motivations are in sync with the requirements of a job, they tend to perform better, experience higher job satisfaction, deliver superior service, and exhibit greater longevity in their role and within the company. This matching process, known as MAPP Matching, offers versatility. Clients can match individuals to one or multiple jobs, jobs to one or more individuals, or even utilize the extensive Government database known as O*Net, containing over 1000 job profiles for matching purposes.

The process is straightforward and user-friendly, featuring easily interpretable reports. When multiple individuals are being matched to the same job, especially for selection purposes, the person with the highest percentage match signifies the closest alignment in motivational profile with the job. This alignment serves as a reliable predictive indicator for future success within that particular role.

To create MAPP Job Profiles, companies utilize a job profiling system that involves analyzing the motivational factors for various positions within their organization. The recommended approach is to create a cohort by selecting the top five performers who are most satisfied in a specific role and have them undergo the MAPP assessment. Utilizing machine learning by amalgamating the motivational profiles of these five individuals, the system generates a comprehensive motivational profile specific to that job. Additionally, profiles can be constructed using other methods such as employing a "nearest neighbor" technique (matching a new individual to someone already successful in the role), using questionnaires for new positions, or drawing from an extensive online job database like O*Net, which boasts over 900 job profiles for reference.
