Psychometric testing 'a useful recruitment tool'

Using psychometric testing to evaluate which candidates are suitable for a particular role is an effective method of recruiting new employees, one organisation has stated.

Phil Flaxton, chief executive of Work Wise UK, said that firms on the hunt for sales recruitment candidates will find that it can make life much easier.

"Clearly, it is a useful tool. It is something which has gained momentum probably in the last 15 years. When I was first introduced to it, there didn't seem to be many organisations actually doing it at the time. The key to the success of this is communication," he explained.

Mr Flaxton added that once the test has been completed, it is important to go through the answers with the candidates to ensure they understand the results and how it pertains to them and the potential role they are applying for.

It comes after a recent report from Talent Q advised that it is important to communicate sufficiently with candidates to let them know why they are being asked to undertake psychometric tests and how the resultant information is relevant to the job.

With consultants that are British Psychological Society (BPS) level A and level B accredited Aaron Wallis are able to offer a wide range of psychometric tools, personality tests, aptitude tests and ability tests.
