Testing & assessment

Drayton’s testing and assessment solutions are tailored to a client’s specific needs; whether that is part of a search or a broader leadership development project. They reveal a depth of highly relevant insight into individuals’ behavioural styles and working methods. This understanding is invaluable when seeking to appoint that high impact, transformational leader.

Drayton offer both personality and ability testing solutions, designed to assess behaviour styles, work-based preferences, and attitudes to workplace scenarios. We use assessments which are considered the gold-standard in the industry, including the Occupational Personality Questionnaire and a variety of ability tests which are suitable for both executive and non-executive appointments across all job disciplines.
