Bryq enables the validation & identification of the ideal profile per role based on high performers by identifying the cognitive and personality differences between high and low performers.

The personality traits of the ideal profile differ from the initial profile (based on the JD) as they reflect the drivers of future performance as opposed to the traits required to just “do the job”.

Once the Ideal Profile per role has been identified, it can be used as a baseline during the hiring process empowering targeted hires (Acquisition) or during in a new position (Internal Mobility).

Once you enter the Role optimization menu click on Optimize Role profile button.

You will be redirected to a vertical wizard and as a first step you will need to select a segment with the high performers of a team. You can select from existing segments or your can create a new on on the spot.

Once you select a segment a snippet of the segment members appear below to verify the selected sample.

By clicking Next the "Top" segment bar folds and the "Bottom" segment bar unfolds.

Following the same steps as above, in this step you should define the low performers of a team. As a result, you can either select from a segment available in the list or create a new one. Please note that the previously selected "High" segment is greyed out as it cannot be used as "Bottom".

Once you click on next, the "Bottom" segment bar folds in and the system calculates the ideal profile based on the high and low performers defined in each segment.

Once the system calculates the optimized profile the suggested cognitive weights & personality traits are shown. Especially for the personality traits, the system generates 6 prominent traits and 3 optional ones, in total 9.

At the bottom of the screen a graphical representation of the difference between high and low performers projecting the Bryq, Cognitive and Personality score is available.

You may perform changes in either one of the categories i.e. Cognitive and Personality and while doing so the bar charts will be adjusted to depict the updated difference. Bear in mind, that the system aims at maximizing the difference in an optimum way. Any change you perform may result in a profile that is not optimal either because the bottom segment is higher than the top or because the difference is not the maximum one. In such a case and if you feel that your changes do not fulfill your goal, you may click on the Reset button to revert to the initial system calculations.

Finally, once you are done you can give a name to the Template and save it by clicking on Save Template button. The template is now available in the list of templates.

You can either click on the template and view the summary of cognitive weights & personality traits.

Or alternatively, you may edit or delete the template.

By editing, you can now edit cognitive weights & personality traits without any correlation of top vs. bottom segments as the exercise has been completed and the optimized role is now saved as a template that can be using during hiring or internal mobility.

By deleting, a confirmation pop-up is displayed asking to confirm the deletion.

Please note that this functionality is by default available to Account & HR Administrators.
