What you need to know about Personality Assessments.
A personality assessment is used to assess how individuals and groups are likely to think, feel and act. This type of assessment is commonly used to offer insight and evaluate a person’s potential to work with others, how they might process information, and how they are likely to cope with stress.
If an individual isn’t assessed against the personal characteristics that are relevant to the job, employers could recruit or promote people who are not well suited to their role, which can be disruptive and costly to the organisation.
A personality assessment allows everyone involved in the recruitment, or learning and development process, to work from established criteria. This means that assessors and employers can determine if an individual is likely to fit in with a team or role.
