Whether your team are working fully remote, are operating in rotations, or only select staff have changed their work location, many organisations are starting to focus on a return to their pre-COVID-19 state of work or some type of ‘new norm’.


Recruiting for Current Times

How can we actively select employees who are likely to be more effective working remotely than others? We know that personality preferences can predict a person’s job performance but can we predict remote job performance through understanding and measuring candidates’ personality?


Job Design & Employee Resilience

Job Design

Is your approach to job design working in our current work context? Employee wellbeing and resilience is critical to a business’s capacity to survive, even thrive, through periods of prolonged uncertainty and change. So, what are the different factors that affect employee resilience?


Wellbeing and Engagement Check

Pulse Survey Summary

Wellbeing and Engagement Check is a 10-minute questionnaire that focuses on the areas we know as Psychologists have a direct impact on wellbeing and psychological health. Importantly, the survey also includes a measure of overall well-being using the World Health Organisation Wellbeing Index.

OPRA Plasticity and Stability

An exciting new breed of assessments that reflect modern neuroscientific thinking about personality has emerged. Understanding personality attributes in relation to plasticity and stability enables organisations to both recruit and upskill existing staff to be fit for the future.



OPRA Futureselves

In times of uncertainty and transition, it is easy to get absorbed into worrying about our careers and forgetting about other aspects of our lives. Here, we introduce to you the concept of Futureselves that will keep your focus on a long-term, future-focused perspective to develop yourself holistically, maintain your motivation during difficult times, and foster happiness and wellbeing.
