Employee Selection Tests

MAKE GREAT HIRES WITH CONFIDENCE

Our employee selection assessments provide a scientifically-measured, valid and legally defensible approach for effectively comparing candidates, removing bias, and making informed hiring decisions

Deciding who to hire is full of uncertainty and risk. Relying solely on interviews, resumes, and reference checks only provides a partial picture of a potential employee. Identifying the candidate with the best person-job fit requires assessing their capabilities, character, and alignment with your workplace culture. Interviews, resumes, and reference checks only provide a partial picture of a candidate. Relying solely on these methods can lead to poor person-job fit. 

Giving you the complete picture, you will be able to evaluate each candidate’s:

  • workstyle
  • interpersonal skills
  • problem-solving skills
  • values and motivations

The results of our career personality tests ensure you select people who can complete the job and fit your organization. When you make the right hiring decisions, you find yourself with an engaged workforce, an efficient business, less conflict and fewer headaches.

Why Choose Psychometrics?

With years of talent assessment expertise, our business psychologists guide you through the process of using employment tests in the selection process to uncover top performers and ensure job fit.

We understand making the wrong recruitment and selection decision is costly. The US Department of Labor estimates that the cost of a poor hire is 30% of their first-year salary.  That is the simple-to-quantify portion.  Consider the impact to morale, productivity and engagement of other employees in your organization when an individual isn’t the right fit.

Our well researched, valid, and reliable assessments measure attributes such as situational judgement, knowledge, personality, safety cognitive ability and reasoning.  Applied in the employee selection process they help organizations hire more effectively and mitigate risk.

The addition of recruitment testing may be a change to your current talent management process.  A lot of organizations still rely on time-consuming resume review and behavioral interviews.  As an HR professional, you know that first impressions and “gut feel” result in bias and the potential for adverse impact.  The addition of objective hiring assessments to your process will make it faster, defensible, and more consistent.
