The Five Box Model
The Five Box Model

The Five Box Model enables you to map your talent strategy to the context of your organisation using five key assessment areas: Intellect, Personality, Motivation, Behaviour and Experience.

OUR APPROACH
A uniquely science-led approach
Current and potential employees are mapped against the five criteria, building a holistic picture that prioritises the traits and behaviours you should be looking for – all the things a CV can’t reveal. This uniquely science-led approach enables us to acknowledge the complexity of your business and the multi-faceted nature of people in the workplace, understanding both to create previously unattainable organisational performance.
Intellect
Intellect
The speed and accuracy at which an individual takes in, processes and retains information. Focusing on academic achievement is really missing a trick when it comes to defining potential. For example, a third of the world’s billionaires do not have a college degree.
Personality
Personality
The beliefs and principles that make each of us who we are. Most skills can be learned, but it’s difficult to train a person’s personality. It’s personality that most accounts for a new hire deciding to leave a business within the first three months because they’re not gelling with the cultural ethos.
Motivations
Motivations
The drive behind the reasons why people come to work; the job, their role, the environment and the working style that energises each individual. Discovering motivation is crucial to employee engagement and development, particularly when it comes to career development.
Behaviours
Behaviours
What people will do, as opposed to what they can do. Behaviour can change depending on motivation – people tend to behave differently in the workplace than they do at home, hence singling out organisational context is critical. Analyzing how and why high performers behave the way they do enables you to spot this potential in others.
Experience
Experience
Contrary to common practice and belief, experience is the least reliable predictor of future performance. Although a person might be able to perform a certain task in a previous company, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be able to do it in yours. This variable is the most adaptable, if experience has been your standard measure of talent up until now, there’s still a lot to learn from the data.
Adapt to homeworking
Our team has created a simple 15 minute questionnaire that will generate an insight report to better help you understand your teams as they adapt to homeworking.
