Psychometric testing is done by recruiters and is included in the hiring process because it can be an efficient tool in detecting important aspects of the candidate.
It offers results on how capable candidates are in being a team player in the workplace as well as how they can contribute greatly to improve the quality of the products and services dispensed by the company.
Psychometric testing is actually used by more than 80 percent of the Fortune 500 companies in the United States and more than 75 percent of the biggest companies in the UK. These companies have varied expertise – from information technology to engineering, energy to banking and consultancy, accountancy, civil service, fast moving consumer goods and retail.
Actually, psychometric testing is not just a one-time process but a two-time one. There is the personality/interest test and there is the aptitude/ability test. The result of the personality and interest test will help recruiters and your future supervisors on how to deal with you and how to coach you to be a team player in the company. It will measure your way of doing things on a personal level and how you should connect it to relate to your co-workers as well as the suppliers and most importantly, the clients of the company. The result of this test will also determine on how enthusiastic you are looking forward to your new work.
On the other hand, the aptitude test will determine your logic to go about the daily tasks at hand once you’re hired. These two tests are meant to determine if you are a good asset to the company.
