Psychometric Testing

Psychometric testing and talent assessments can bring your business higher performers, better leaders, more effective employees, and a greater return on your recruitment decisions.

A bad hire affects job performance, team performance, and staff morale. Find the right person the first time and strengthen your company’s recruitment process.

One of the goals of the recruitment process is to obtain an accurate description of each candidate in order to make a prediction about how well they will perform in the role.

However, collecting data to make that judgement can be complicated. The candidate puts their best foot forward, both in their interview and their resume, and the interviewer has their own biases and values. All these factors impact on objective decision making. Whilst both parties are usually acting in good faith, research consistently shows that the more traditional interview-based recruitment process is not the best way to predict future performance.

The introduction of psychometric testing, whether it is general intelligence, aptitude, or personality profiling, will give a richer and more complex description of each candidate and significantly improve recruitment decisions. Psychometric testing helps hiring managers select candidates based not only on their skills and experience, but also on their cultural fit and potential for growth.  It allows you to accurately predict training performance and on-the-job learning.

It is important that psychometric tests are administered and interpreted correctly. Testing is more than emailing an anonymous link to a candidate and then having the results emailed to the hiring manager.

Fermion draws on decades of scientifically reliable, valid, and predictive success in psychometric and talent assessments to help identify and develop the right employees for your business.

Fermion’s approach is practical, data-driven, grounded in the latest and best practices of organisational psychology. We have developed a methodology that delivers superior results. From contacting all candidates before the testing, which the large multinationals would never do, to the nature of the instructions, and the context-dependent interpretation with the client, that is, weighing up all the other available data about the candidate.

If you are tired of hiring the wrong person and you want to improve your recruitment decisions, then consider incorporating psychometric testing into your recruitment process.
