Psychometric Profiling

A psychometric test is an assessment tool used to measure an individual’s cognitive abilities, personality traits, emotional intelligence, social aptitude and/or behavioural tendencies.

In recruitment, in particular for executive level hires, it’s designed to provide objective and standardised measurements and information during the recruitment process to help companies to reach a more informed decision when searching to find the most suitable candidate for positions. 

Most typically they are used in hiring executive appointments or roles where individual human quality can have a significant impact on business/function performance. Psychometric tests offer valuable insights into a candidate’s decision-making style, problem-solving abilities, interpersonal skills and how an individual handles themselves in certain situations, often vital attributes for effective leadership and senior-level positions. 

The results of these tests provide employers and executive search recruiters with valuable insights into a candidate’s suitability for a particular role or business, their strengths, weaknesses, and compatibility with your organisation's culture, values and objectives.

By leveraging psychometric testing and integrating it into the executive search process, businesses improve their hiring success and efficiency. Their in-depth analysis provides a holistic view of a candidates' potential, enabling you to select the most high quality individuals available to both ensure consistency and maximise performance, and those who will drive your organisation's success long term (and likewise limit the risk of unsuccessful hires).
