The use of psychometrics is increasingly seen as normal practice for inclusion in the recruitment process as psychometric tests are objective, reliable and valid.
They provide a standardised sample of behaviour with three important aspects:
1. All candidates have the same experience.
2. Objective assessment of skills or preferences.
3. Performance assessed against the same standards.
Benefits of using psychometric tests in recruitment
They enable you to identify ability and potential using measurable assessment techniques:
Measures a candidate’s characteristics which you may miss with just an interview.
Benchmarking against a large group of external population.
Reduces biases and lowers the risk of a mis-hire
Fairer, more equitable, harnesses diversity.
Proven to be reliable and valid.

“I approached Quest Partnership to see if they could provide some support on the re-design of our Graduate Assessment process. They worked very closely with us throughout the project; they provided fantastic support and guidance in regards to reviewing our current assessment process and designing and implementing some new exercises and assessment criteria as well as supporting the assessor training event.
