Belbin® for Organisations

Using Belbin

Belbin is used in tens of thousands of organisations across the world. The uses and applications for Belbin are wide and varied and can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

Order Belbin Reports

Belbin is a behavioural tool, rather than a psychometric test or personality profile.

Unlike personality, behaviour can change over time, based on a number of different factors. The Reports contain personalised guidance and advice for both individuals and their managers.

Knowing the strengths and potential weakness of individuals, and seeing how people will work together as a team offers many advantages for both the organisation and the individuals within it.

As the Reports are compiled using both an individual’s perception of him/herself in the workplace combined with how their colleagues see them it makes it harder to cheat the results, making it more valuable than other reports or tests available.


The uses for Belbin are numerous

  • Selecting people to form a high-performing team, and developing those teams on an on-going basis
  • Making decisions about which individuals to recruit or promote
  • Resolving conflicts at work
  • Helping managers to ensure that they are allocating the right work to the right people and maximising motivation and performance
  • Providing individuals with the information they need to take the next step on their career path
  • Building productive working relationships
  • Raising self-awareness and personal effectiveness
  • Building mutual trust and understanding

Using Belbin will give you

  • Balanced teams based on behavioural contributions, not job titles
  • Self-aware individuals who can adapt their behaviours according to the situation and business need
  • The right people doing the right tasks, leading to better-performing teams
  • Depersonalised team conversations, using a common language to discuss team contributions
  • Informed decision-making based on fact rather than a gut-feel or hunch
  • Confidence when making decisions involving people
  • Insight into behavioural strengths and weaknesses that don't necessarily show up on a CV

“Belbin Reports are really clear. They give detailed background information that reduces the amount of time I have to spend explaining to each individual. The support I get from the team at Belbin is always great too.”

Jooli Atkins, Learning Facilitator, Matrix FortyTwo
