Psychometric Testing Ireland – Psychometric Selection Services

Reduce costly selection mistakes now

Recruitment and hiring processes are fraught with challenges. Research has shown that 46% of new hires fail within 18 months. To reduce costly hiring mistakes, you need to identify the candidates with the right mix of personality traits, values, aptitudes and abilities for your company and your roles.

Interviews, CVs and qualification provide you with a subjective assessment of this mix but only psychometric testing provides you with an objective assessment that predicts performance. This is why 80% of the US Fortune 500 and 75% of UK Times 100 Companies have incorporated psychometric testing into their selection process.

General ability tests are regarded as an objective measure of a person’s intelligence, I.Q., learning ability, learning capacity or problem-solving acumen and they are one of the best predictors of job performance.

Those aptitudes include – verbal aptitude, numerical aptitude/logical thinking, abstract aptitude/analytical thinking, technical aptitude, design aptitude and dexterity aptitude. This allows you to identify whether a candidates has the specific aptitudes necessary to excel in a role.
