Using personality tests as a hiring tool

Home / News / Using personality tests as a hiring tool

Many company owners regret their employment decisions. There are various possible reasons for this. During the interview process, you may be overwhelmed with applications, especially since there is an average of 24 applicants for every single vacancy. Additionally, it can be difficult to fully understand a person and their working abilities in one interview, or even a series of interviews. As a result, often many companies hire employees that do not turn out to be a great fit for the company. The price tag associated with a ‘bad hire’ can amount to a few thousand pounds, leading to unwanted expense and inconvenience. Fortunately, personality assessment tests offer a cost-effective and efficient hiring tool that will be fair for all applicants and optimise your chances of hiring the right person for the role.

These assessment tests are used by companies of various sizes across the country. They can assist you in your search to find someone with the right personality and necessary skills to be successful within your team, as well as providing details and information about your candidate that you simply wouldn’t get from an interview. Conducting business this way helps you gain a well-rounded view of potential new employees, giving you a greater chance of employing the right people. However, as there are thousands of options regarding tests to choose from, it can be difficult to make a selection between them all. That’s why we provide a clear and informative testing structure to allow you to succeed in your search.

Our personality assessments can be completed online and are among some of the world’s most well-known and widely used questionnaires. They can help you gain an understanding of your potential employee’s thinking style, management skills and relationships as well as helping you to gain an insight into how well they will be able to work. For recruiters, personality tests offer an array of benefits including the ability to make more informed recruitment decisions and compare candidates.
