In Recruitment and Selection why use personal profile, known as psychometric testing?
Making the right hire decision is a large investment for any organisation and getting it right is the difference between success and failure. Anything that can swing the right decision in your favour should be grasped with both hands.
The three primary tools for selection is:
- Competency based interviewing when the candidate’s track record is measured against specifically job requirements.
- References are checked over the phone to verify achievements and ability to meet your businesses working style including teamwork.
- Psychometric testing where the profile of the candidate is cross matched with the define job competencies and where personality traits are identified, including in the case of Senior Executives identification of potential Career De-Railers.
