Psychometric testing is one of the many important indicators in hiring a better candidate, which is ideal for any company. In other words, this test brings improvement to your company’s products and services leading to a high customer satisfaction survey rating and generally improving sales. That’s because psychometric testing determines the personality of a candidate. This, apart from the reference check which is actual subjective evaluation of the person from his/her former peers.
Evaluates all competencies
The advantage of psychometric testing is that it assesses all competencies, not just one aspect of the person. That already includes attitude, aptitude, performance, behavior and adaptability. Both academic knowledge and emotional intelligence of the candidate are weighed equally.
Assists in the decision making process
Psychometric testing is a good indicator not just for new hiring but also for workers’ appraisals which serve as guides to trainers.
Psychometric testing helps candidates recognize their strengths and weaknesses.
Given all the above reasons, it is definitely viable that recruiters adopt psychometric testing as one of their practices during the hiring process.
With psychometric testing, will you still resist changing your recruiting process?
