Struggling to Find the Right Person for the Job?

Every job requires specific skills and personality traits to ensure optimal performance and healthy team dynamics.

The problem is, resumes and interviews don’t always give you insight into a candidate’s personality, which can lead to performance issues, conflict within teams, high turnover, and more.

Pre-Employment Personality Testing is the Missing Piece to Your Hiring Process

What is a pre-employment personality test? A pre-employment personality test evaluates a candidate's true nature, allowing you to see everything from their strengths and weaknesses to work ethic and values before ever meeting them. Work personality tests help you spot character traits you’ve identified as being important for a particular job.

Resumes & Cover Letters Show You:

  • Education level

  • Past roles & responsibilities

  • Special skills or training

  • Written communication style

Workplace Personality Tests Show You:

  • Candidate’s work ethic

  • If they’re reliable

  • How they react to stress

  • If they’ll fit in with your team

  • Their strengths & weaknesses

  • How well they listen and take direction

  • How they handle giving or getting feedback

  • How well they adapt to change

  • And so much more!
