Chandler Macleod People Insights: A Brief History

I Stock 1210226489

62 years ago, in 1959, Alf Chandler and Doug Macleod established Chandler Macleod as the first industrial and organisational consulting firm in Australia. They quickly built a reputation for expertise in predicting employee behaviour and critical success factors for roles, teams and organisations, and used this expertise to provide specialised recruitment solutions.

Australia’s First Personality Assessment

Gaining a license for the use of the Humm Wadsworth temperament scale in 1959 Chandler Macleod began the modern practice of assessing employee personality. Assessing personality and employee potential remains the heart of Chandler Macleod People Insights and Chandler Macleod Group.

Today we stand on this proud history of assessment and continue to invest in and develop the assessments we use.
