Personality questionnaires for recruitment, selection and development

Personality questionnaires are used in recruitment to assess a candidate’s personality profile; e.g. how they work, how they stay motivated, and their approach to solving problems.

During the assessment candidates will be presented with a range of statements relating to expected workplace behavior and motivations before being asked to rate how much they either agree or disagree with them.

Answers are used to build a more well-rounded view of a candidate’s personality in relation to the role being applied to.

A candidate’s results are then compared to a norm group, which allows the recruiter to gain a better understanding of their candidate in relation to a general average for that type of role.
