Drake P3 – A Behavioral Profiling Tool That Would Be a Good Addition to Any Human Resources Toolkit

Drake P3 is a psychometric assessment and behavioral profiling tool that is designed to help organizations assess and select the best candidates for any given role for which they are hiring, enhance communications within an organization, optimize individual performance, and enhance team effectiveness.

Some of the key benefits of using the Drake P3 system include:

  • Better hiring decisions – the behavioral data that Drake P3 harvests from candidates enables hiring managers to make more enlightened hiring decisions
  • Improved employee productivity – Drake P3 helps managers and supervisors pinpoint key behavioral strengths and challenges of employees so they can ensure that their strengths are fully leveraged to the benefit of the organization and that their challenges are addressed through training, development, and coaching
  • Reduced employee turnover – since the majority of employee turnover has its roots in the hiring process, by enabling more enlightened hiring decisions, Drake P3 has a positive effect on an organization’s employee turnover rate

The Drake P3 system’s benefits also extend to job candidates and current employees, both of whom gain greater insights into their own behavior and into the types of roles their behavioral profiles suggest they would suit. This helps in setting realistic expectations and also in mapping out developmental pathways for candidates and employees who may be “almost” ideal for a role for which they’re applying or to which they’re aspiring.

Drake P3 Profiling Process

The Drake P3 profiling process is simple, straightforward, and quick to complete. It involves the completion of a Communication or Candidate Survey (depending on whether the individual completing it is a current employee or a job candidate), which is a self-report adjective questionnaire that takes less than 10 minutes to complete and is the source of the data for the resultant Communication/Candidate Profile that is the heart of the Drake P3 behavioral profiling system.

The Communication/Candidate Profile reports on an individual’s unique combination of five fundamental behavioral dimensions:

  • Dominance
  • Extroversion
  • Patience
  • Conformity
  • Conscientiousness

Specifically, the Profile reports on the intensity of an individual’s predisposition each individual behavioral dimension or trait – identifying his or her “high traits” and “low traits” and, in so doing, provides deep insights into how an individual is likely to perform in a given role, work with others, take direction from supervisors, as well as the degree of flex he or she can manage in each of those five behavioral areas, among other things.

And the Drake P3 system does it all in plain English.

Drake P3 is a Good Addition to the Human Resources Toolkit

The Drake P3 system – not unlike other psychometric assessment systems such as the DISC personality test and profile system – is a great way to accomplish a number of key HR objectives – effectively and efficiently.

As such, the Drake P3 system should be given consideration as an addition to any organization’s HR toolkit.
