Online psychometric assessment, also called online psychometric testing, is the most effective and objective way to gain an understanding of an individual’s potential. Interview techniques alone have proven to be unreliable in assessing a candidate fully. Our psychometric tests mitigate this weakness. This allows clients to recruit, retain and develop the best possible talent in their organisations.
Typically, online psychometric testing is used for leadership assessment, executive assessment and management assessment. But it has also proven to be effective in management development, recruitment & selection and graduate recruitment. It can also be used for candidate selection at operational, clerical and supervisory levels. Assessments in these areas range from those used to assess personality, such as OPQ32 and HPI, through to strategic ability tests. They are all designed to highlight competencies as much as to assess potential.
All of the OPG’s online psychometric assessments have received the highest industry accreditations from The Psychological Testing Centre. Each of our consultants is British Psychological Society accredited. You can be confident, both in our expertise when it comes to delivering psychometric assessments and in the quality of the services.
Every psychometric assessment we recommend is 100% objective and designed to deliver unique insight into a candidate’s personality and their strengths and weaknesses. This is why The OPG is proud to work in partnership with today’s leading psychometric test publishers. These include Hogan (HPI,MVPI & HDS), MBTI and FIRO B and CEB’s market leading OPQ32 and Verify assessments.
