Personality Questionnaires

Easily assess candidate personality at work for better recruitment and selection.

 

 

PERSONALITY QUESTIONNAIRES

In recruitment, personality questionnaires are used to assess a candidate’s personality profile, that is, how they like to work, approach problems, stay motivated and what drives their emotional reactions.

When taking a Clevry personality assessment, candidates are presented with several statements relating to behaviour and motivations in the workplace and asked to rate the extent to which they agree or disagree. 

Answers provided by candidates are then used to build a well-rounded view of their personality in relation to the role being applied to.

Once a candidate has completed their personality questionnaire their results will be compared to a norm group. This allows recruiters to better understand candidates in relation to a general average and thus make more informed decisions on who is being hired.
