Our philosophy

All the psychometrics for your recruitment, development and analytics needs

Psychometrics can often be seen as something difficult, complex and expensive. Usually only people with expert level training uses psychometric assessments. This often leads to situations where assessments are solely utilised towards the end of a recruitment process and exclusively for senior level positions. This leads to only partial objectivity in the process and the company loses valuable data that it could use through-out the employee lifecycle and for HR or people analytics. Our goals is to change how organisations uses psychometrics.

We work on removing any potential stigma around psychometric assessments and make them easy to use and something that improves the candidate experience. We want to make it possible to make use of assessments as broadly as possible in organisations of all different sizes - from niché operators to global players.

Psycruit helps you to recruit and develop personnel based on your culture and values. It also allows you to collect and analyse recruitment and development data. Learn what types of people you attract, interview and recruit for all of your roles. Get valuable insights into what correlates with job perfomance and other KPI's and re-use that data in your processes.
