OPQ Reports Specialist Provider – Recruitment, Testing and Feedback


OPQ reports for Recruitment, Selection and Development

21st November 2017:  Iridium regrets to announce that we no longer provide OPQ reports.

What is the OPQ?

OPQ is the most widely used occupational personality questionnaire, is available in over 20 languages and has a worldwide research base conducted over the last twenty years. There are 32 trait dimensions, hence the name OPQ32. Answers are compared to a large group of similar level managers/professionals who have completed the questionnaire in the past. OPQ is available in a range of 20 different languages and so it is also useful for recruitment internationally. For more information download the OPQ Brochure. To see the types of questions used go to the practise area of SHL’s site or see some sample questions. Note:It is not a test as there are no right or wrong answers!

What do you get from OPQ?

Results are provided in 3 broad areas: relationships with people, thinking style and feelings and emotions with several sub-scales for each area. The 32 scales make it easy for OPQ to be linked with your competency framework.

OPQ looks at personal preferences rather than observed ability but it is very useful for giving an insight into what motivates and what ‘switches off’ people.

OPQ results are produced in a range of concise, graphical and user friendly computer generated expert reports and are also given in comparison to norms of similar level candidates.
