Personality/Skills Testing - is it worthwhile?
Pre-employment tests have been around for decades and over that time have improved.
With the Internet facilitating job applications, it has become more important than ever to have well-validated, useful and efficient pre-employment tests that provide reliable insights into the capabilities and traits of prospective employees. LSH uses one such proven personality testing platform that covers aptitude tests, personality tests and skills tests.
Our HR clients have realised the benefits of information-gathering that does not rely solely on the traditional methods of resumes and interviews. Pre-employment tests are objective, enabling employers to make better, more defensible decisions. The objectivity of these tests has also provided accurate prediction of employee productivity across a wide range of job types and industries.
Further benefits include:
Less time-consuming hiring
Increased employee retention and reduction in costs associated with turnover (e.g. hiring and training costs).
Cloud-based testing so you can test anyone, no matter where they are located
The ability to prove what the candidates are telling you
Our tests include:
Specific role testing that gives you in-depth information and percentage matching to the role
Skills testing such as numeracy, literacy, MS Word, MS Excel, MS Outlook, and more
Recommendation on further questions to ask the candiate depending on the results
The ability to tell you if the candidate has taken the 'likes' of the personality testing seriously and will report if they have given conflicting answers
