Does anyone know a company who can provide psychometric testing? We have a candidate to place and want to ask them to do some PI testing (preferably Myers Briggs or Colours insights) as part of our hiring process.
I’m looking at doing a course to be certified to do this myself, so it would also be really good chance to highlight benefits of doing it. We did 16 Personalities online, however we want to get a more thorough and “expert” profile, if that makes sense.
Many thanks, Sarah
I know there are many choices and everyone will have preferences.
I have been accredited and have used Insights Discovery in a previous organisation. It had good breadth and depth in terms of what you can do with the model. We used it as part of the hiring process, working with apprentices, management, leadership and team development, as well as 1-2-1 coaching and development. It’s very flexible, can give good top-line insight to personality types or you can go deeper. All based on Jungian theory.
You can become a Client practitioner to use within your organisation or licensed if you want to use it outside your org.
Hope this helps, S
Hi there, I know of an independent person who can provide testing and advice on the same, she carries out testing within a number of organisations. If any interest Sarah let me know how to contact you directly and I can share her contact details.
Just out of interest what insight do you hope the profile will provide you that will help the hiring process?
Thanks Patricia, that would be really helpful, if you could send the details on to me, or ask them to get in touch, that would be really great! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Sam – I’ve done some profiling before at previous roles, and it is really insightful; it helps us understand how we can get the best of people, and where their strengths and weaknesses may be found. From what I know, and it’s been a while, this job is probably going to need someone who is a predominantly Red profile with green as it’s secondary. We want to make sure this matches with what he says.
Thanks Steve, I’d love to pick your brain as well if that’s ok, please feel free to send me an email if that’s ok? 🙂
