Traditional hiring is almost always built on a three-legged stool – the resume, the interview and the reference check. All three are almost totally based on someone’s personal and subjective opinion. There are development programs that can strengthen each of these legs, but the very best hiring processes also build in factual data based on psychometric assessments. Such tools supplement the usual pursuit of knowledge, skills, and experience of each candidate with an additional assessment of the degree of job fit between a specific candidate and the position being hired for. Research is increasingly indicating that, without a high degree of job fit, even the highest-ranking recruits on knowledge, skill and ability measures seldom make it into the top 20% of performers in the role. Our highly reliable and valid assessment tools are increasing our clients’ ability to hire more ‘top performers’ every time.
