Personality questionnaires

Candidate personality tests for recruitment and selection.

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.

Candidates taking a Clevry personality questionnaire will be 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.

The Selection Report describes the degree of fit between an individual’s psychometric results and the critical attributes of a specified role within your organisation. It’s a great narrative report for any questionnaire that has been job matched.

This is where you indicate what your ideal candidate would look like on each of the scales using a 5 point sliding scale ranging from Great fit to Terrible fit with the target role.

The reports summarise the key findings from the candidate’s personality profile, allowing you to build a more well rounded view of their strengths.
