Top 5 free personality tests for employees

A balanced team

A well-balanced team makes all the difference in the world. Just a team of star players is never going to be a high performing team. And a well-balanced team of average players can outperform every other team. Are your employees adding value to each other? Do they all bring something different to the table? A balanced team with diversity and an open feedback culture will be able to reach great results.

That’s why it’s good to know what type of employees your colleagues are. By labelling them with the types in a fun way, you can directly give feedback without crossing lines. A lot of tests free and paid are available both on and offline. We listed our top 5 free personality-related tests to start with.
