Psychometric Testing

Gain amazing insights with psychometric testing

Most people come across psychometric testing at some point in their career. Mostly this will be during the interview process. They will often be asked to complete a personality test.  These tests can range from short questionnaires to long assessments.Psychometric testing

Some managers use them as a line management tool to help structure an interview. Many organisations will even use psychometric testing to support the learning and development of their staff. Used correctly, psychometric testing is a huge asset to every business.

There are generally two areas of psychometric testing:

  • Personality questionnaires. These measure core aspects of personality.
  • Ability tests which measure reasoning and various aspects of intelligence.

Organisations need both of these tools to help them make better decisions about people. Psychometric testing will help reduce hiring manager mistakes and help managers motivate their teams. Both of these benefits will help organisations reduce employee turnover, increase revenue, and boost morale within their workforce.

Psychometric testing allows you to:

  • Benchmark the behavioural requirements of a role.
  • Profile candidates and produce easy to read reports.
  • Create Job-Fit Interview Guides with analysis and behavioural interview questions based on the role and the candidate.
