Psychometric Assessments

What are Psychometric Assessments and how can they assist your business?

Palmerston North Personnel believes that assessments are a proven way to reduce the risk associated with staff selection and development. Using quality assessment profiling and ability testing gives structured and measurable insights into an individual's likely behaviours and ability levels. By matching this data to job-related or other benchmarks (such as coping skills and capability levels), probable strengths can be identified as well as areas where further training and development or initial job support may be required.

Psychometric testing can identify existing and required skills, training requirements, and staff development needs. Assessments are conducted by individuals at our premises or group sessions can be pre-arranged and conducted at a venue of your choosing. Palmerston North Personnel's trained administrators and assessment interpreters can schedule and conduct the assessments within 24 hours' notice. Our qualified assessment interpreters can provide a full written report and verbal analysis of the results within 24 hours of the assessment's completion.

Aid the Selection Process

Psychometric assessments are consistent and impartial and can enhance the objectivity of the selection process. They are standardised in terms of the questions asked, the time allowed, and instructions given, which means all candidates are placed on an equal footing, making the assessment fair and objective. Unbiased, reliable and relevant information concerning the likelihood of job success and satisfaction can be provided, and they can improve the chances of appointing productive, high performing staff. Using relevant assessments we can gather additional job-specific information, making more informed and accurate selection decisions possible. By reducing selection errors, organisations can reduce staff turnover, training costs, lost opportunities and stress to individuals.

  • Does attitude trump experience?

    Does attitude trump experience?

    Yes! Attitude is key to a successful placing, as opposed to simply matching an employee with the right skill set for the job.

    Ask yourself; does the candidate possess the ability to learn? If the candidate is enthusiastic and intelligent they likely can be taught the required skills for the job, as opposed to a candidate with the required technical skill set but a less than enthusiastic attitude.
