What Are Hiring Assessments
Hiring assessments measure applicant capabilities and screen for qualities and traits that are linked to greater job performance. Assessments can be made up of several different tests that measure unique qualities such as intelligence, work styles, values, abilities, and personality traits. In this way, assessments can be customized to measure any job’s requirements. For assessments to select people who will be successful, they must be validated, or based on data and evidence showing the relationship between the assessment, job performance, and business outcomes such as increased revenue and reduced turnover.
By using a combination of different types of assessments, you can gain a more complete picture of the applicant and more precisely measure the qualities needed for job performance, fit with your culture, and retention.
The unique differences in how we think, feel, and behave are driven by our personality. Analytics linking these patterns to key performance indicators within and across industries give us a deep understanding of how personality drives performance. Hiring assessments often measure the Big Five personality traits (Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, Openness, and Emotional Stability) because they account for much of the difference between success and failure on the job. Importantly, how these traits are measured will depend on the type of job and your organization’s needs.
