About Facet5
What is it?

Towards understanding

Facet5 is a modern and advanced measure of personality. Used by organisations and consultancies worldwide, Facet5 harnesses the power of personality, supporting individuals, teams and businesses to realise their full potential. Facet5 provides a model and common language to help understand how people differ in their behaviours, motivations and attitudes, and more importantly, what can be achieved.

Designed with business in mind

Facet5 was developed in response to client demand for speedy, practical information to guide each stage of an employees' journey through an organisation. Available in over 32 different languages, Facet5 is jargon-free, and web-based for easy access globally. A wide range of country and industry norm groups makes meaningful comparisons simple. We work with organisations to design and implement solutions that solve business problems, harness opportunities and realise potential.

Whole of lifecycle approach

Facet5 is easily applied across the entire employee lifecycle. From selection through to separation and exit, Facet5 engages the individual, the leader and organisation with comprehensive insights. Whether building a team, integrating a new hire or looking at organisational culture, Facet5 helps individuals, teams and organisations realise their full potential.

Sound psychological theory

The five factor model of personality (or 'Big5') is now widely accepted as the best way of describing the fundamental building blocks of personality. The 'Big5' model consistently emerges from psychological research as the irreducible minimum needed to give a comprehensive description of personality and behaviour. Facet5 measures these five factors precisely and quickly to give the most accurate and easily applied portrait of individual differences in behaviour.
