Employee Engagement Starts with Putting People in Jobs That Fit Their Interests, Personality and Skills
In survey after survey we find that there’s a strong relationship between job fit and engagement.
It only makes sense, because it feels terrible to be a round peg in a square hole.
Research shows that people are most likely to excel when they’re in a career that fits them,when they bring passion to their work because they love doing it.
The challenge is to find that career without a lot of trial and error.
Pathway Planner identifies careers that are the best fit and makes it easy to get detailed information on those careers.
For over 20 years, Profiles International has been helping companies hire the best candidates for their jobs, based on the candidates’ interests, personality and skills.
During that time Profiles has done millions of assessments for over 40,000 clients in 120 countries.
As part of that process, Profiles helps companies identify the characteristics of their most successful employees in the position for which the company is hiring. Once this profile is created, it is used to help select the best qualified candidate.

During this process Profiles amassed a huge amount of data on what characteristics (interests, personality and cognitive skills) correlate with success in various fields.
Pathway Planner turns the process around. Instead of seeing what person is the best fit for a position, the assessment gathers information about the job seeker and provides a list of the best career matches for them.
It takes into account interests, personality traits and cognitive skills (verbal and math skills). The assessment takes 60 to 90 minutes and goes far beyond what most job interest/aptitude assessments cover.

But Pathway Planner goes even further. For each career that the assessment identifies as a good match, the report includes a link to the appropriate job family on the O-Net. The O-Net is a government-maintained database that includes very detailed information about what it’s really like to work in that field.
The O-Net includes detailed information on each job family, including:
- Tasks the job involves
- Tools and technology used
- Knowledge, skills and abilities required
- Work activities and context
- Job Zone (level of education and experience required)
- Work Styles
- Work Values
- Related Occupations
- Wages and Employment Trends

This information will help your employees or potential employees understand what it’s really like to work in that field. They will be able to make decisions based on comprehensive information, instead of hazy impressions about what a particular career involves.
Pathway Planner will help identify and research which careers will be the best fit for them, both in terms of being successful and enjoying their work.
