Candidate Assessments - Psychometric Testing
What is it?
Why is it vital when recruiting?
In today’s world, there is fierce competition when it comes to getting a job, and this can make recruitment processes more challenging. You can very easily hire someone who seems like a great candidate but all too soon you could realise that they don’t fit in with the team as much as you’d like. These types of situations are frustrating and should be avoided.
Therefore, a measurable assessment like psychometric testing can be useful to see these attributes and how they might act in your organisation. It also ensures that this insight is done fairly with no bias. Psychometric tests are objective and standardised, so you know the results will be reliable and fair. For example, in a career in the medical field like a paramedic, patience and caring need to be shown. Spending a bit of extra time to run psychometric tests can save you money and time in the long run, ensuring you really are hiring the right person.
