Dawn Hagman, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, a Partner who leads Human Capital at DGC, was recently featured in INSIDE Public Accounting’s December issue. Dawn was quoted in the article, “Personality Assessments Are One Team-Building Tool, But Beware of Their Limitations.”
In the article, Dawn discusses how DGC utilizes the DiSC Assessment to determine the four main personality characteristics of their employees. New hires at DGC take the DiSC assessment test within their first week at the firm and then in a debrief, Dawn outlines the various styles explaining there are no “good or bad” outcomes. Some employees display small flags at their desks indicating their DiSC strengths: Dominance (red), Influence (yellow), Steadiness (green) and Conscientiousness (blue).
“I’ve had people come from the Big 4 and we give the DiSC test, and they say to me in the debrief, ‘I love this because you care about me as a person, you want to know what makes me tick,” Dawn said.
