reduce your risks

science in recruitment, search and development

The facts. Competency based interviews do produce better hiring results. The trouble is that they only increase your chances of making a successful hire to about 56%.  Adding a quality psychometric assessment, improves that overall  success potential to nearer 80%. Not only that, you will also get a much clearer picture of the work preferences of the candidate when you do hire them. Not doing psychometric assessments reduces the validity of your hiring decisions (where validity is successful performance in a role 12 months after commencement).  We also use assessments extensively in leadership and professional development.

What we do:

  • Agree the competencies you need (over and above skills and experience)
  • Map these to a framework we can interview and test against them
  • Provide you with an interview guide for your shortlist
  • Correlate our interviews, your interviews and assessment results to target reference questions
