How to Use Pre-Employment Testing in Hiring – Harvard Business Review

Harvard Business Review LogoIn a recent Harvard Business Review article titled, “How to Use Psychometric Testing in Hiring“, author Ben Dattner quoted the Society for Human Resource Management saying, “Roughly 18% of companies currently use personality tests in the hiring process. […] This number is growing at a rate of 10-15% a year according to many industrial and organizational psychologists.”

The article goes on to say that the costs of bad hiring decisions are immense. Dattner states, “the cost of a bad hire is widely estimated to be at least one year’s pay”.

In a popular LinkedIn article, Dr. Adam Grant highlights that, “Interviews are terrible predictors of job performance.” Decades of scientific evidence point to a better way to hire. Using validated pre-employment tests significantly increases the accuracy of hiring decisions.
