Jobs and Job Matching

If DISC can provide a description of a person's behaviour, then the idea can be extended to develop a model of a job or role. This process is called Job Profiling: developing a DISC profile that describes the ideal combination of behaviour needed to perform a particular role.

Once we have a Job Profile, we can apply the same principles to it as to a personal DISC profile. For example, we can create a textual description of the type of person needed to fulfil the role effectively.

The real strength of a Job Profile, though, is that it gives us a basis for testing different personal styles against a role's defined needs. This is a Job Match - a procedure that can assess exactly how effectively a person's behaviour will fit the needs of a role. It can even examine the specific differences, and suggest areas where a person will excel, and where they will likely benefit from training.

Deciding on the ideal definition for a new role is a often a question best settled by consensus, and Discus recognises this fact with a brand new feature: collaborative Job Profiling. Now, it's possible to create multiple different 'views' of the needs of a role, and use Discus to merge those perspectives together to create a single Job Profile.

How to Make a Job Profile

Defining a role using DISC is easier than you might think. Discus includes five different methods, each suited to different situations.

For example, you can use a simple question set to describe the main features of a role, or choose a candidate who is currently successful in that role as a template. For really experienced users of DISC, you can even create a Job Profile entirely by hand.

Limitations

It has to be emphasised that Job Matching like this is only a part of the process. Clearly, there is more to a person's suitability for a role than merely their behavioural style, and that means that Job Match provides only a part of the picture - albeit an immensely useful and informative part.
