At TNG, we use occupational psychological screening tests as part of our selection and assessment process when we recruit without bias. This provides all applicants with the same chance to showcase their skills and potential when they apply for jobs through us. At the same time, we can assess candidates objectively without relying on ”gut feeling,” and find the candidates who have the greatest potential to do the best work for your company. It’s a method that enables increased diversity and causes fewer mistaken hires.
During a recruitment process, the focus is usually primarily on the merits of the various candidates. The recruiter makes note of and compares work experience and education and reads the CV for the feeling it gives, based on the recruiter’s own experiences and background. But a candidate is so much more than that. Most often, we get stuck in our own prejudices and preconceived notions about age, background and gender when we recruit.
Effective assessment tools
Unbiased recruitment is instead about assessing the candidate’s overall competence based on knowledge, motivation, personality and talent. For anyone who wants to make an objective choice and thus be able to focus on the applicants’ future potential, there are now selection methods and assessment solutions available that are better than the traditional ones. For example, occupational psychological screening tests are an effective tool in selection, serving to establish candidates’ talent and personality. This allows you to select the right candidates to bring in for an interview.
