Psychometric tests are the pre-employment tests organizations use to measure the behavioral capacity and mental capabilities of people they intend to hire. These assessments are primarily intended to gauge whether the candidate is suitable for a particular role based on two core skills – personality and skills. They are used to measure the hard-to-see skills which cannot be objectively and accurately evaluated during a face to face interview.
During the hiring process, employers make effort to gather as much relevant information on their candidates as possible. The challenge is that traditional methods of recruitment as we know it — screening resumes/CVs and interviews — often don't yield the best insight about the candidates. CVs alone can be unreliable. Research indicates that up to 75% of resumes contain misleading information and in some cases outright lies. Hiring managers will agree that they often encounter lies and exaggerations in candidate’s CV’s/resumes. Similarly, interviews — especially unstructured ones — are highly subjective and may give little predictors of job performance.
Psychometric or Pre-employment Tests (Aptitude, personality and skills tests) offers well-validated tests that are reliable and objective in gathering job-related information on candidates. Pre-employment tests makes the recruitment process more objective and accurate by providing unbiased results that can be standardized across all applicants. Hiring Managers can then use these data to make better hiring decisions.
Pre-employment testing can drastically reduce the time you spend reading resumes and conducting interviews. More importantly, they help you avoid the pain, disappointments and the costs that comes with wrong hires. Reducing the chances of wrong hires will ultimately translate a healthy bottom line, increased workforce productivity and reduced turnover.
