I Psychometric testing is a method that we could use as part of the recruitment r selection process. The aim of this method is to offer employers like you a reliable technique of selecting the most appropriate job candidates for the job on offer. The purpose of psychometric tests is to assess qualities like intelligence, aptitude and personality. The tests offer an employer awareness of the ability of a job applicant to work with other people, how well they can work under stress and handle it, and whether they will be able to deal with the intellectual demands of the job.
Like any method ‘Psychometric testing’ has its advantages and disadvantages. Since the tests allow potential employers to gain a better understanding of an individual’s personality, preferences and abilities its gives them the opportunity to find the best individual for the job. The method can be used in the recruitment and selection process, the best time would be in the early- stages of selection so that the tests can determine the best individuals for the job and screen-out the unsuitable job applicants.
Additionally, they can offer senior management the assistance on development of existing employees. One of the biggest disadvantages of psychometric testing is the fact that job applicants can give false answers, individuals can possibly answer questions in the way that they think that employers want to hear but which is not true in reality. Additionally, individuals will try to diminish there negative qualities and more likely portray themselves in a positive manner. Overall, job applicants try to sell themselves and aren’t entirely honest when it comes to answering questions about themselves.
Another disadvantage could be the fact that psychometric testing may return with inaccurate results, it may portray an individual as something they are not, Which could lead to employers hiring the wrong person and losing an suitable job applicant. Whilst, psychometric testing is an effective recruitment and selection tool it also has its weaknesses, it is possible that you could test the method to see the outcome and from that you could decide if it is beneficial to use in Our recruitment and selection process or if you should focus on different methods.
