Here at Nonstop Locksmiths we take pride in investing the same amount of care, attention, and mindfulness to our employees that we give towards our customers. Our staff consists of a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures, with employees that hail from all walks of life. Group communication, togetherness, and synergy are all of primary importance for our business – which is why on May 9th we held a joint workshop for our employees moderated by the professionals at Harmony Insights.
Personality Testing for the 21st Century
You might be wondering what Harmony Insights is. As described on their website, “achieving harmony in any relationship…requires work.” Harmony Insights is a personality testing and group-collaboration workshop, focused on helping people understand the value of harmony in both personal and professional relationships. The group bases their personality measuring tools on the “DiSC” theory of modeling one’s built-in perceptions, tendencies, and strengths. DiSC is composed of four different personality types; Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness. Dominant styles of behavior seek out challenge, authority, and direct risk-taking. Influencers are high energy people, focused on interacting with other people. The Steadiness style of behavior is prefered by those who appreciate working within systems at a moderate pace, and emphasizing stability in their workspace. Those who work with the Conscientious style of behavior work with a higher level of cautiousness, rationality, and compliance.
The Value of a Diverse, Accepting Labor Environment
At our workshop, each of our employees underwent a personality test custom designed by the team at Harmony Insights – highlighting our tendencies, how we communicate, and how we may understand each-other. Afterwards, we all shared our results with each other. In an effort towards transparency, mutual understanding, and team building, everyone at Nonstop who underwent the Harmony Insights personality test had their results publicly posted in our headquarters. This helps us understand each other on a higher level – which raises up both our personal relationships with each other, as well as our ability to professionally collaborate – which in turn allows us to provide our customers with better service. We understand that the personality testing administered by Harmony Insights has nothing to do with our trade of locksmithing – but it reflects on our company’s commitment to fostering a diverse, open, and accepting environment for our employees
