There is still innovation in the air at Bletchley Park, the birthplace of modern computing. Not least because this is where Identifi Global’s team of industry leading recruiters are based, matching cyber security, business IT and digital professionals with roles that perfectly suit their skills, personality and values.
Identifi’s past experience with psychometrics had left them with the impression that the tools tended to be too convoluted, or priced such that they were difficult to roll out extensively across the business. However, their main pain point had been that previous tools placed emphasis on measuring candidates as a means to ‘weed out’ rather than as a way to really enhance the candidate experience.
Our candidate is king approach, coupled with our intuitive reporting designed for busy recruiters meant Psycruit was the ideal psychometric assessments platform for Identifi going forwards.
During the beginning of our partnership with Identifi we discussed their key aims for using the tools in their business:
The personality questionnaire data allowed much deeper and personable conversations with their candidates. This gave Identifi a much clearer sense of both their quality and their personality, as well as their culture fit in a way that we and they could trust.
On the flip side Identifi's candidates have stated that they loved taking the time to understand themselves and their workplace motivators better, and that it benefited them even after the process had finished.
This stuff was once a dark art, but Criterion made it uncomplicated and our clients have bought into this simplicity and what we are trying to achieve. We have seen truer and more lasting relationships with our clients and candidates.”
– Gary Fay, Director.
“The verbal and numerical reasoning tests have shown to be a really good differentiator. We often have candidates who in terms of technical skill may look identical, but the ones who stay in roles for longer are the ones with better communication and a match in terms of cultural fit.
The tools have allowed us to measure this from the beginning, particularly the verbal reasoning test; the candidates who score highly on this tend to do well in the role, it’s as simple as that.”
– Peter Sanders, Director
“Being new to the business and never using psychometric testing before, I have seen Criterion provide Identifi with a high level of support and training as they have needed, be it on a 'one to one' or 'group' based training. Having a dedicated person also provides a more personalised partnership.
This all packaged up appears to provide everyone at Identifi the opportunity to make the most from the Psycruit tool, from a candidate, customer and individual perspective.”
