which is formed by specialised scientists, covers the needs of a
business for better and more rational development of manpower.
concerning the valuation and selection of personnel in order to
cover new positions in a business or in order to redeploy the
already existing positions, the managers collaborate with the human
resources department (if there is one) and compose a
plan that shows the manpower needed.
plan according to the business’s needs includes:
of the already existing manpower and forecast of the
need for new personnel
of work and specifically:
a) work description (duties, working conditions) and
description of qualifications (educational level, experience, skills
characteristcs of personality)
and selection of personnel if required
and redeployment of the already existing personnel
and development of manpower
“Polidefkis” system is based on the valuation according to the
characteristics of one’s personality as well as the skills
required for each position.
The knowledge of a person’s characteristics is the basic semantic
instrument in organisational behaviour and modern management.
“Polidefkis” system uses a “personality
test” which aims to detect the psychological and distinctive
characteristics that play significant role in the forecasting or
explaining one’s behaviour in his/her working environment.
One’s personality (the combination of one’s psychological and
distinctive characteristics that form his unique type of behaviour)
helps to determine in which occupations he would be more efficient
and what would his reactions or behaviour be in his working
– Evaluation of abilities
true that each occupation requires certain skills.
Besides the possible specialisation required for a position,
which is usually determined by one’s studies, there are certain
skill tests that can assist us in selecting among people with the
same typical qualifications.
Skill tests consist of a range of questions followed by
multiple-choice answers that must be answered within certain time
(usually limited) and aim to evaluate mainly one’s ability to
judge and perceive.
Skill tests are used according to the type of occupation and
position we wish to cover each time.
A group of scientists reforms or recomposes these skill tests
in co-operation with the companies and their requirements.
distinction of the characteristics of one’s personality through
the respective test and the valuation of skills through skill tests,
combined with other factors (studies, experience, interview etc)
that are each time set by the company in co-operation with the
executives of HUMAN STRATEGY, substantiate the right selection of
each person for each position.
The valuation of manpower is one of the means for the accomplishment
of each company’s goals; therefore the proposed method of
valuation was designed having in mind usual as well as unusual
faults that may appear during the process of valuation in order to
be as credible and efficient as possible.
Moreover Polidefkis is used as a method for the professional
orientation of young people or unspecialised workforce.
Thus it can be used in schools, educational institutions, and
educational centres for adults etc, in order to specify the
tendencies of each person.
