Why do Employers use Personality Testing?
Research has shown that the best personality questionnaires can be up to 17 times more predictive of job performance than the average selection interview on its own – making it a powerful recruitment and measurement tool to benchmark candidates as well as existing employees.
Due to the flexibility of the personality test, it can be set up to apply to nearly every selection occupational setting. Research has identified several personality traits that are particularly useful when predicting job performance.
Personality testing has been shown to provide the following:
1. Predict job performance
2. Predict training success
3. Culture fit indication
4. Lower employee turnover
5. Supplement and inform interviews
6. Maximise employee motivation and engagement
7. Identify competency levels
8. Indicate the candidate’s preferred team role
Personality tests are also a brilliant tool for personal development. Personality tests can usually supplement training for numerous leadership roles which can:
1. Recognise strengths and weaknesses
2. Increase self-awareness
3. Identify coaching needs
4. Identify development needs
5. Guide career paths
6. Facilitate benchmarking and performance monitoring
Personality tests have many other advantages, for example, they can be implemented with great speed and bespoke reports can be turned around usually within 24 hours. Candidates can complete the personality assessment either at home on the computer, or, if you prefer at an assessment centre. The OPQ provides useful insight in to the candidate’s potential and can be used in the later stages of a recruitment process.
One of the biggest advantages of personality tests is that they can be combined with other psychometric tests including Verbal or Numerical ability assessment. Research has proven that the combination of psychometric testing has been shown to increase validity and likelihood of recruiting the right candidate for the role. Making the OPQ an ideal tool for your selection, recruitment and development processes.
The advantages of psychometric testing are numerous and are a very good way of measuring and monitoring your organisation’s talent acquisition at every stage including, selection, assessment and development.
