Recruiting with personality

Dec 8, 2021 11:30:06 AM

Personality is key to finding the right person for the right job. 

Recruiting with personality - Clevry

At Clevry, we use personality assessments in all our recruitment processes to better define the strengths and capabilities of each candidate, meaning better recruitment, better candidates and better results for our clients.   

In recruitment, personality assessments are used to measure candidates' soft skills such as interpersonal skills, work ethic, adaptability and problem-solving skills in order to help employers find the most suitable candidates for a position. Candidates are then put forward based on how well their personalities, behaviours and motivations match the requirements of the position and the company culture.  

Clevry's personality questionnaires are designed to highlight the qualities and attributes that are crucial for success in the role as well as in your specific workplace. Our assessments are used to build a more well-rounded view of a candidate’s personality in relation to the role being applied to. Being better informed about the candidates needs and motivations allows us to make better decisions and provide our customers with tangible ROI.  

We always ensure that our tests are standardized, reliable and validated. No subjective assessments take place during this process.

Personality assessments are standardized to ensure that all individuals are treated equally, and can be accurately compared. They offer a robust process, free from subjective influence and bias. 

 

Why Personality Matters? 

Soft skills are personality traits that shape the way we work, act and interact with others. These skills represent a range of different abilities and attributes that are often necessary for success in a particular role. 

Soft skills are becoming more and more vital in the workplace. This is because they're highly transferrable skills and can be applied to a number of different situations and roles. As society continues to grow digitally, soft skills will become more and more vital in the workplace. 

By measuring soft skills we get a result that demonstrates how the individual will perform in a specific role. Key insights about how an individual interacts with colleagues, performs work related tasks, communicates and builds relationships are not always easy to discover during an interview or by looking at a CV. It is though in fact crucial when it comes to finding the perfect match.
