Various organizations have found that expanding the differences of their workforce pays off in enhanced execution, more content clients, and more fulfilled representatives. For example; some employees grasp change in organization and others are frightful of it; a few employees are able to adapt new tasks more viable than others; a few workers will be gainful just under keen observation. Successful management at workplace obliges that individual differences must be perceived, and taken into consideration while managing job placements and organizational behavior (Douglas & Martinko, 2001).
Inherited Differences, Capacity, and Abilities, recognition, identity, and disposition, are the factors that influence individual differences. Considering Individual differences helps the employer in making decision while interviewing individuals for job positions (Roberts and Hogan, 2001); for instance, if you are having interviews for a position of customer care officer then you require somebody affable, gracious, quiet, and tried and honest. The applicant you are conversing with appears decent. Yet how would you know who is the privilege individual for the desired post? For that reason, employer needs to assess candidates conscientiously, so they contract individuals with the most obvious opportunity with regards to being productive and cheerful at work (Pearn, 2002).
Personality of an individual bases upon different patterns of thinking, reaction, and conduct that characterize the style of an individual and influence associations with the nature's domain. Various personality theories such as Psycho-scientific methodology, phenomenological methodology, Behaviorist/social learning hypothesis, Characteristic hypotheses and The Five Factor Model have been presented to elaborate individual personality. These personality theories are mostly used and practiced by Business Psychologists at workplace (Roberts and Hogan, 2001).
In my perspective job placements requires giving respect to individual and social contrasts in order to deal with nondiscrimination in the Workplace. Challenge for ability, demands of the marketplace and the changing environment require a diverging workforce. By bringing a more outstanding pool of ability to the working environment, assorted qualities frequently brings about better choice making, an expanded understanding of clients' necessities, and a more noteworthy job placement (Chopik, 2015).
