Psychometric tools provide an in-depth view of how an individual thinks, feels and behaves. Cost effective and invaluable to gaining initial, time-saving insights, psychometrics are beneficial to candidate assessment and development.
Psychometric Tools and Assessment
Psychometrics facilitate candidate assessment by creating a personality profile, from which a best-match role and position can be found. Candidates displaying certain traits or tendencies may be suited to particular environments. By matching candidates to roles, candidates are more likely to be motivated, involved, and productive.
Personality psychometric tools, such as the Hogan Suite or NEO, measure behaviour traits of an individual, from which strengths and potential can be assessed. Psychometric tools predict leadership capabilities, interpersonal relationships, and reactions to stressful situations. Utilising these psychometric tools is crucial in the understanding of candidates and their conceivable impact within a company.
