The JOB PERFORMANCE AREAS MATCHING INDEX – JPAMI, and the EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE MATCHING INDEX – EPMI are two instruments developed by using the Big Five personality theory as its foundation.  The Big Five personality dimensions have repeatedly been researched for an empirical link with job performance prediction, and in many studies this link has been found to exist e.g. Barrcik and Mount (1991); Rothman and Coetze (2003); Thoresen, Bradley, Biese and Thoreson (2004).

In the modern day organization of the 21st century human capital management has become a strategic imperative and competitive advantage for organizations.  Recruiting, selecting, placing, developing and retaining the right talent are therefore of paramount importance. To this end the JPAMI and EPMI assessment instruments were developed to enable organizations via an uncomplicated tool, to match their human resource talent with their job requirements in order to ensure job success.  In this regard  Judge, Higgins, Thoresen and Barrick (1999) found that the Big Five personality dimensions correlate very highly as a predictor of career success.

JPAMI: The JOB PERFORMANCE AREAS MATCHING INDEX – JPAMI firstly measures the personality factors expected for a particular job and then measures a person’s personality on the Big Five rationale as it pertains to job related behaviours.  This can be done by utilising a consensus 360 degree input system, resulting in a description of the job personality factors as well as an incumbent’s job behaviour related personality on a continuum of the Big Five factors and their opposite poles.

EPMI: The EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE MATCHING INDEX – EPMI, consisting of a 100 item questionnaire, measures a person’s personality on the Big Five rationale by utilising a web based input system, resulting in a description of said person’s
 personality on a continuum of the Big Five factors and their opposites
