Make better informed recruitment decisions this year

With the average cost of replacing a senior manager now being estimated at £10,000 you cannot afford to make a wrong decision when recruiting. You need to ensure that you have as much information as possible on your candidates in order for you to make the best informed decisions on whom to employ in your business. Why not introduce the use of psychometric tests as part of your recruitment process to reduce the risk of getting it wrong?

What are Psychometric tests?

Psychometric tests attempt to objectively measure aspects of a person’s mental ability or personality. They are often used in recruitment practice, as part of the selection process, to help assess or predict how candidates might behave in the working environment.

Why use Occupational Personality Profiling?

The occupational personality reports gained from conducting psychometric tests can quickly provide a great deal of fairly accurate information on a candidate and how they might behave in the working environment that might otherwise take you days to be able to assess.

Benefits of implementing Psychometrics Tests

  • Gives you the information you need to help you employ the right people from the start, which will improve your employee retention rate and reduce your recruitment costs – wins all round!
  • More accurately matches the candidates skills and behaviours to the requirements of the job to help you decide which candidate will perform best
  • Ensures that you are well aware of the candidates strengths and weaknesses from the start so that you know what you can expect from day 1
  • Improves the professionalism of your recruitment processes and formalises the structure of interviews

Psychometric tests should not be used in isolation or solely replied upon to make recruitment decisions. They should form part of a thorough recruitment and selection process. Our HR Consultancy team can also help in designing a thorough recruitment process for you from drafting job descriptions to liaising with recruitment agencies and providing structured interview questions for the Recruiting Managers.
