How Can Your Business Benefit from Psychometric Assessments?

When looking for new people to join the team, interviews tend to only get you that far. What if there was a way to discover your future leaders and create a team of people who can take your business to new heights, exceeding your expectations. That’s a whole lot of pressure to put on an odd 45-minute interview. Allow Orgro to help you find the perfect fit for your team with our psychometric assessments.

Orgro’s psychometric assessments specifically aim to help businesses not only hire the right individuals but allow them to understand their current team members better and aid organisational and individual development. To give you a little bit more insight into what we do, take a look at how your business can benefit from psychometric assessments.

Personality Psychometric Assessments

As soon as a person takes their first breath, various aspects influence who they are, what they do, and who they become. When asked who you are in an interview, the automatic response is to give a name, a brief history about where you are from, your work experience and some clever facts that may or may not have anything to do with the position. The facts you choose to share about your personal life, however, are not linked to your personality. Orgro’s personality assessments delve deeper into the personality of a person and uncover an individual’s characteristics and personal traits and if they are aligned with the key responsibilities and expectations of a specific role in the company. This offers the employer an insightful peek into the behaviour of certain individuals and whether or not it is potential for them to succeed in the future.

Cognitive and Learning Potential

Our psychometric assessments also take into account an individual’s cognitive and learning potential. Hiring a new team member is an investment in not only your company but in the individual and their potential to grow and excel in the environment. Orgro’s psychometric assessment helps measure cognitive processes that are valued in problem-solving. This includes but is not limited to conceptual thinking, complex situational judgement, and strategic versus operational inclination.

Assess Individual Integrity

When running a big company, it can be near impossible to understand all the workplace dynamics. Unfortunately, in most companies, owners are frequently unaware of what happens behind the scenes and the social politics that may come into play every once in a while. Orgro’s psychometric assessments allow businesses to assess individual integrity and determine the ethical standing of every member of the business. This allows you the chance to get in tune with the true intentions of those who surround you and whether or not they are in line with the vision and the core beliefs that you hold high in your company. The assessments also help reduce potential future risks and costs by predicting counterproductive work behaviour.

Aptitude Assessment

In any business, it’s important to create a space where individuals can grow and be introduced to new challenges and experience. Orgro’s psychometric assessments include a specialised aptitude assessment, allowing us to determine an individual’s ability to flourish and excel in a specific role. Ensure that you have the right person for the job, by ensuring that they have an aptitude for the role. Aptitude tests are considered one of the best predictors of workplace effectiveness and improved staff productivity. Aptitude assessments are also a great way to see if there are any team members with hidden talents and skills that you may have overlooked in the past and who could help boost your business in a different role.

It is important to note that all our assessments are unbiased and culturally fair. This allows the business to receive a fair and highly accurate prediction of successes in a role.
