Psychometric Testing

The use of Psych assessments is often met with slight hesitation as to how effective they are. Quite often, people don’t like doing them either.

However, assessments that look at attitudes, behaviours, preferences, aptitude and also elements of personality substantially reduce risk in hiring decisions. This is only true of “real” psychometrics – those that have established statistical validity and provide benchmark or “reference group” comparisons and in turn, these validate your responses to qualifications, experience and history. Don’t risk a wrong hire but don’t risk missing a good hire either.
