Online psychometric testing is an excellent way of understanding more about how people will behave at work. Online psychometric assessment enables employers to undertake aptitude tests and personality tests in the most time efficient and cost effective manner whilst reaping the rewards of the insight that these tools can provide.

It’s about reducing the risks inherent in any recruitment process. According to the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), hiring the wrong person can cost a business up to 2.5 times the salary of the role they are recruiting for. One-third of small firms told the Equal Opportunities Commission that a recruitment failure can cost them as much as £28,000. That’s before you consider the time cost, which can mean up to 9 months of lost productivity per employee, whilst a new person is recruited.

Online psychometric tests can give you the insight and information you need to avoid these financial headaches and time costs. Having a more rounded view of someone; their motivations, preferences and behaviour will give you much greater insight into the likely performance of new starters or the potential development and training needs of existing employees.

We offer a range of ability tests and aptitude tests (verbal reasoning, numerical ability) and market-leading personality tools, such as Myers Briggs (MBTI) and Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ), that can be used across the employee lifecycle; from recruitment of new staff to the continued development of existing employees. We have tools that can measure sales personality, leadership styles, management derailers, appetite for risk and much more.

Because Bloojam is independent we are free to scan the market and select the best tools to fit the job role involved. Bloojam works with you to understand your specific requirements. We then identify the most appropriate online psychometric assessment tools and manage the whole project, providing you with clear and insightful feedback to help you make more informed recruitment and development decisions.

SMEs

In an SME or owner-managed business, your people are your business, so getting recruitment right is critical. In fact one in four businesses have cited the hiring of skilled staff as a barrier to growth (FSB, 2014).

Online psychometric tests add that missing layer of information that you cannot get from an interview alone. They help you to understand what motivates a person, their attitudes and how they are likely to behave so that you can more clearly see if they are going to fit in with your company and those who already work there.

Working with you we will identify the most relevant online psychometric assessment tools, including ability tests and aptitude tests (verbal reasoning, numerical ability) and personality tools, such as Myers Briggs (MBTI) and the Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ). We have tools that can measure sales personality, leadership styles, management derailers, appetite for risk and much more.

The process does not need to be time consuming for you or your candidate or employee. We tailor our solutions precisely to your needs, the role you are recruiting for or the team you wish to develop, and the personal attributes and characteristics that you tell us are crucial for success. After a meeting with Bloojam to agree your psychometric assessment needs we set up the candidate(s) to undertake the tests online, complete a validation discussion with each person and supply a full written report to you which can inform your recruitment decision or direct your training spend.

Hoping that someone’s right for the job will always be guesswork. Getting it right will make the difference - for you and your business.
