Psychometric Assessments: Help Your Company Succeed, and Your Employees Thrive

Psychometric assessments are a brilliant way to find future leaders and identify incredible potential in current employees and potential candidates. By using these assessments, managers and business owners can hire the right people and invest in a team who will take their enterprise to the next level in terms of growth, performance, and success. Psychometric assessments refer to tests that evaluate a person’s performance by determining knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes, personality traits, and academic or career potential.

Here at Orgro, we utilise a range of tests that have been created locally and globally to aid in organisational and individual performance and development.

Psychometric assessments are varied in nature, and different tests are able to analyse different traits and abilities of potential candidates or existing employees. These tests ultimately help you to hire the right people and in consequence, enhance the success of your company. Some of the key test areas that our psychometric assessments cover include:

1. Personality Tests

These tests aim to understand an individual’s characteristics, and utilise this information to identify how they can complement key functions and roles within your organisation. You thus gain a deeper understanding of certain behaviours and glean imperative information about an employee’s future performance in a particular role. Personality tests include:

  • Comprehensive Assessment Profile (CAP)
  • Work Personality Index (WPI)
  • Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ32)
  • 15 Factor Personality Questionnaire (15FQ+)
  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
  • Basic Traits Inventory (BTI)

2. Aptitude Tests

These psychometric assessments identify strengths and abilities with regard to certain tasks. This offers ample return on investment and enables you to hire successful candidates for particular jobs every time. When you hire the right people, work gets done quicker, and you experience more impressive results. These assessments are often regarded as one of the best predictors of workplace success and are thus hugely beneficial to any organisation. Aptitude tests include:

  • Verbal reasoning
  • Word meaning
  • Perceptual speed
  • Numerical reasoning
  • Spatial visualisation
  • Mechanical aptitude

3. Emotional Intelligence Tests

Emotional psychometric assessments help to identify cognitive and learning potential, as well as emotional responses in candidates and existing employees. These tests assess a range of factors such as conceptual thinking, situational judgement, strategic and operational inclination, and more. Emotional intelligence tests include:

  • Cognitive Processing Profile (CPP)
  • TRAM
  • APIL

4. Integrity Tests

Ethics are hugely important in any organisation, and you want to ensure that everyone on your team is on the same page when it comes to their ethical standing. Integrity tests can help to identify candidates who are honest, dependable, and trustworthy. These are important employee traits for any business. The tests ensure that you can identify problematic behaviours before they occur as these might be counter-productive to success. Integrity tests include:

  • Work Related Risk Profile (WRISC)
  • IP200
  • Giotto

5. Value Tests

Our individual value systems largely shape our priorities and decision-making processes. Value tests can measure the value systems within a team or an individual, and these can enhance communication within teams. This ultimately boosts performance and leads to better goal achievement and success. Psychometric value tests include:

  • Values orientation

We also offer a range of psychometric assessments that will identify particular careers best suited to particular individuals. This enables people to embark on fulfilling career paths that utilise their core strengths.
