Psychometric assessments are powerful tools for hiring managers and recruiters, due to their ability to assess and predict which candidates are likely to be top performing employees in open job roles.
This assists companies to:
increase their proportion of top performing employees
reduce employee turnover rates
enhance employee engagement
The result is greater company performance, revenue, and culture, and an easier decision making process for hiring managers
What is a psychometric assessment?
A Psychometric assessment evaluates candidates on cognitive ability, behavioural traits, and occupational interests, to identify how suitable they are to open job roles and their likelihood of being a top performer.
Results include detailed trait scores, strengths, and challenge areas.
This provides more detailed and accurate insights into candidates, enabling better and more effective hiring decisions.
Why should I use psychometric testing?
The traditional recruitment process involving a resume and unstructured interview process is fundamentally broken and only delivers top performing applicants about a quarter of the time.
This is because it is subject to human biases and subjective thinking, which affects judgment when making recruitment decisions.
Incorporating Psychometric Testing into the recruitment process boosts the likelihood of selecting a top performer by up to three times, due to the objective, science-driven data that can be relied upon to make more informed hiring decisions.
The subsequent increase in top performing employees within your company delivers an ROI which far exceeds the initial investment into the assessments.
Who should use psychometric tests?
Organizations across almost any industry, of any size can benefit from incorporating psychometric testing into their recruitment process, whether they are a start up or large multinational.

By comparing your applicant results to these benchmarks, you ensure they are directly relevant to nominated job roles.
