If you’re in the 63% of organisations who don’t have an integrated onboarding and recruitment process, then our psychometric tests can help you along the way. You could use personality questionnaires as part of the recruitment process to assess a candidate’s fit to your company and their values. Then, once a candidate has been hired, the same personality profile can be brought together into an onboarding report.

This gives your business tailored information about each new recruit, based on their personality at work, allowing you to provide adaptable inductions that fit their specific needs. This information is invaluable when easing in new hires as well as ensuring existing employees remain engaged are motivated to stay in their position.
