Are you tired of going through countless resumes and interviews, only to still feel unsure about who is the right fit for the job? Do you wish there was a way to get a more comprehensive understanding of a candidate’s suitability for a role? If so, then it’s time to consider psychometric testing!

Psychometric Testing –Why you can’t hire without it!

What exactly is psychometric testing, you ask? It’s an assessment that measures an individual’s intellectual abilities and personality traits. This evaluation goes beyond just cognitive ability (such as learning index and verbal reasoning) measuring factors like behaviours such as manageability, sociability, energy level, accommodation, decisiveness, and interests. By utilising this approach, employers can gain a more profound understanding of a candidate’s potential fit for a role, ensuring a better match for both the employee and the company.
learning index, verbal reasoning, and behavioural traits such as manageability, sociability, energy level, accommodating, and decisiveness, employers can gain a deeper understanding of a candidate’s potential fit for a role.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), 82% of companies are now using some form of pre-employment assessment, including psychometric testing, to help identify the best-fit candidates for their organisation. This approach has been shown to provide valuable insights that may not be uncovered during an interview alone.

By creating a benchmark for their ideal candidate and comparing assessment results against it, employers can more confidently and objectively make hiring decisions. The insights obtained from psychometric testing can also help identify areas for potential development and training, which can ultimately streamline the onboarding process and accelerate the speed at which new employees become fully operational. Effective onboarding is crucial to ensure employees feel welcomed and engaged, leading to better retention rates.
