Should Aptitude and Personality Testing Impact Hiring?

Should Aptitude and Personality Testing Impact Hiring?

Last year, Duma Works launched an aptitude and personality test feature as an additional tool for companies to use to screen talent for their organizations.

The question always comes up about how much weight HR Managers and Recruiters should place on these aptitude and personality tests, because after all, it’s very difficult to understand the intricacies of who someone is and their motivations from a 30 question survey. It’s also tough to knock candidates out for test scores – maybe they aren’t as good test takers, maybe the tests were developed in other markets, maybe they haven’t been trained as well in standardized tests…

We thought we would share how Duma Works uses the aptitude and personality tests in-house to help advise on how to fit aptitude and personality testing into the job candidate screening process.
