Employees today are required to be multifaceted with a range of skills in addition to their educational and technical qualifications. Considering the time and effort that goes into a hiring process, it is crucial to select the right candidates who will fit into the company’s culture, are willing to learn, will deliver their best performance and most importantly score high on the scale of employee retention. All these factors make the situation difficult for recruiters using the traditional assessment practices that include phone screening and/or in-person interviews.    

This is where behavioural and personality assessments come in real handy. They help recruiters understand the character traits of the candidates which are useful in gauging their suitability on all aspects for the company and the job role they will be hired for.

Personality assessment tests consist of a series of scientifically designed questions and scenarios that allow the evaluation of a candidate on attributes such as thinking style, motivation level, leadership qualities and capabilities, social skills and generic personality traits. The performance analysis of candidates on personality assessments can actually help recruiters predict the success of the potential employee in the position.   

Application of Personality Assessment

Given the insights that personality assessment tests are able to provide, they can play a major role in helping recruiters select the right candidates for the job role. By employing the right talent, hiring becomes an efficient process that gives better returns for the company.

The scope of personality assessments is not limited only to the hiring process. In fact, it can play a significant role in workforce development as well. The growth and overall success of any business are dependent on employee development. Company culture and growth in employees’ potential can positively influence business success.
