Pre-employment Personality Assessment Needs To Answer 3 things

December 12th, 2018 / upskillable

Due to infusion of technology in hiring process, candidate screening is becoming extremely popular. Pre-employment personality assessment is now an important stage in candidate hiring process. At upskillable, we’re all about automating the candidate screening process. We believe there are possibly different ways to do this, but most of the ways we’ve seen are still using the CV and keywords to match candidates to possible positions. That may be great to some, but we feel it’s antiquated and still doesn’t help you determine if someone can do the job or not. As CV screening no longer works, managers started to use technology to pre-screen candidates using personality or job fit assessments.

Hiring manager, recruiter, or anyone hiring inside an organization much check whether or not the pre-employment personality assessment that he/ she is using answer these following three things:

  • BEHAVIOR
    Does the person have the right personality to be able to succeed in the job? This doesn’t have to include every aspect of personality because that would be incredibly broad, however, we do need to know how the person behaves in various situations.
  • MOTIVATIONS
    We also need to know where the person’s passions lie and if the motivations that job requires and provides are in agreement with what the values and/or motivations that the candidate requires and provides.
  • DECISION MAKING INTANGIBLES
    Finally, we need to understand what causes people to make the decisions they make. These are intangible qualities that can be profiled.

By clearly understanding personality across these dimensions it’s easier to make informed decisions about who the person is your organization is looking to hire.
