Psychometrics -Personality Profiling & Ability Testing

Personality profiling and ability testing are increasingly becoming integral to the selection process in organisations that focus on objectivity and ensuring that they choose the best candidate. When you are hiring, training or developing your employees, would it be useful to have answers to some of the following questions?

  • How a potential candidate will interact with other employees?
  • How assertive they will be in dealing with difficult situations?
  • How quickly they can develop a rapport with the customer?
  • How quickly a new employee will learn a new skill?

Profiling and psychometric assessments are essential, especially in the current economic climate, as companies begin to realise the true cost of hiring the ‘wrong’ person. Through profiling and psychometric assessments, candidates are fairly and effectively shortlisted for your company. It also ensures the best return from any investment in training or development.
