Psychometric tools help employers to understand and measure an individuals’ psychological factors like intellect, personality, motivation, attitudes and values will fit with the vacant role in their organisation. They are based upon a series of statements, designed by a specialist psychologist,we use SHL. These statements become the questions in your psychometric test. Your responses to the questions are analysed and linked to real world behaviours and performance.
Psychometric tools can also help organisations to better assess, understand and develop people.
Psychometric tools are used by 97% of the Fortune 500 companies.
Organisations need to change the way they select, assess, hire and manage talent.
Many employers use psychometric tests as part of their interview process. These tests are designed to assess the intelligence, logic, reasoning ability, numerical ability and verbal ability of potential candidates. The most effective way is to use tests related to specific types of work, particularly customer service or sales roles.
We work with a variety of clients to help them improve their selection process. Some small or medium sized enterprises may be reluctant to invest in psychometric tests when they hire staff, but that is often a false economy. In an SME business, it is even more important that you hire the right person.
