How do I get started with Discus?

Getting started with Discus is easy. You'll just need to take a few minutes to sign up for an account, and then you'll be ready to start creating profiles right away.

Can I send questionnaires to my candidates online?

Discus provides an entire suite of features to make this process easy and automatic. At the simplest level, you can simply enter a person's e-mail address, and Discus will send them an invitation and then display and manage the questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is complete, a report will immediately be compiled and added to your accounts.

Discus also provides lots of options for your to customise this process to meet your exact requirements. For example, you can arrange to be automatically notified and sent a copy of the report as soon as it is available.

Can a person completing a questionnaire read their own report?

This is a decision you can make as you set up an invitation. There's no requirement to share the report, but you have the option of doing so if you wish.

Discus can also provide an intermediate solution through the 'Feedback' report, which is an alternative version of the report specifically designed for this purpose, providing a readable and accessible summary of the results.

Do I have access to all my profile reports?

Every DISC profile produced on your account is held in your own secure Discus database. You can access, review and manage those reports at any time. Discus even provides extra features to assess the results in combination, such as comparing candidates against the needs of a role, or assessing how individuals would work together in a team.

How can I recover a lost or forgotten Discus password?

It's easy to reset your Discus access details. You can start the process from the Discus sign-in page, or by following the link below. Discus will handle resetting your access through your registered e-mail address.

Is training available?

We offer a comprehensive online video training course introducing the DISC system and its workings. The course is free if you sign up for an account with fifty credits or more.

Discus itself offers an interactive guide to get your started, and extensive help resources throughout the system.

I received a test invitation, but I'm not able to use it.

There can be various reasons for this. The invitation code might already have been used, or it might simply have expired, or been cancelled by the user who originally set up the invitation.

Your best course of action in a situation like this is to get in touch with your invitation provider and ask them to set up another invitation for you.

I completed an invited questionnaire, but I didn't receive a copy of my report.

When a Discus user sends out an invitation, they can choose whether to give you access to your report or not, so it may simply be that this option isn't active.

If you think you should have received a report, your best course of action is to contact the person who sent you your invitation; they will have the option of sending you a copy.

Can I try Discus for free?

Sorry, we aren't able to offer free trial profiles, but if you want to try the service, remember that you can set up a Discus account with just a single credit.

If you want to see what Discus can produce, take a look at our extensive library of sample reports.

Job Matching with DISC Profiles

Matching personalities with ideal jobs and roles

With Job Matching, we can compare a person's DISC profile with the ideal for any job or role, and sum up how well their personality matches that role's needs.

DISC explains a personality in terms of four numbers, and quantifying a person's behaviour like this brings some significant advantages. This opens up, for example, the possibility of Job Matching. If we use DISC to predetermine the ideal personality style for a role, we can match the factor values in a DISC profile against that ideal, and so work out how well a candidate is suited to that role's needs. Because we know all the personality factors involved, it's even possible to highlight strengths that stand out, or areas where a person may need development.

It's important to stress that DISC Job Matching can only look at an individual's personality, and it's therefore limited to describing suitability in those terms, but nonetheless it can provide a powerful basic guideline in helping to make a recruitment decision.

Close Matches

Areas where the candidate shows particular strengths or aptitudes needed for the role.

Adaptation Needs

Areas where the candidate will likely need training or development, with useful behavioural questions.

As well as finding how well a personality matches a job, we can also reverse the process to create a Candidate Match. If we have a job, and a set of DISC results for each applicant, we can search through those applicants to find the ones whose personalities are closest to the ideal.

Job Profiling

Both types of matching, Job Matching and Candidate Matching, rely on having a predefined personality profile for the job we're matching against - a Job Profile. A natural question would be: where does this ideal DISC profile come from?

There are two possible answers to that question. The simplest and easiest is to select a template from a library of predefined profiles. We provide several hundred standard templates for the most common types of roles, from categories as diverse as administration or sales, or as specialised as education or media.

Those templates are a useful starting point, but the best possible approach is to create your own custom Job Profile to match the exact needs of a job. The complete built-in Job Profiler service is designed to help you do just that. You can start, for example, by answering a set of questions about a job that's analogous to a normal DISC questionnaire, and a Job Profile is created based on your answers to those questions. For more advanced cases, the Job Profiler provides a host of other options, so you can (for example) base a Job Profile on the personality of a really successful candidate, or 'tweak' the profile's settings to match your needs perfectly.
