The results of psychometric profiling can enrich your knowledge about candidates and can reveal important details which might, for a wide range of reasons, otherwise be missed.
“Not only do three-quarters of respondents say they use psychometrics, but 78% agree that it is a ‘powerful tool’ for hiring… 88% of respondents [say] they have faith in test results.”

Psychometric testing can support the fairer assessment of candidates, identifying talent which might not otherwise shine through with more traditional selection methods. This kind of profiling can help universities to stay more focused on equality and achieve greater diversity.
“Using criteria that are purely based on education and social background tends to lead to less diversity, but psychometric testing puts things on a more level playing pitch.”
