Testing Times


(Despite - or possibly because of - the market being flooded with candidates, companies are increasingly using psychometric tests in the selection process)

  • In what circumstances are psychometric tests now being used?
  • Why might organisations be prepared to pay up to £6000 for tests to help them in their selection decisions?
  • Why might organisations offer psychometric tests to employees who have been selected for redundancy?
  • Why, however, is the use of psychometric tests regarded as unacceptable in selecting candidates for redundancy?
  • Do you think that the questions highlighted would help an organisation make a correct recruitment decision?
