Development & Performance


Measure the impact of perfectionism on your employees to help them reap the benefits of this personality trait without going overboard.

Why analyse perfectionism?

  • Perfectionists tend to be more stressed, have lower self-esteem and be less satisfied with their work than non-perfectionists.
  • The level of perfectionism among young adults has been rising steadily since the 1980s (Source: Douilliez, 2022)

When should perfectionism be measured?

  • When you are looking to improve overall performance by encouraging a more efficient approach to work.
  • When you want to reduce the stress and anxiety of your employees.

When you have identified perfectionism as a risk factor (e.g. via our Psychosocial Risks or Global Risk Analysis module) and would like to explore the issue further.
