We use 20 personality factors (pf) psychometric test for validating selection of candidates. This test is used worldwide by multinational and prospective organisations to validate the selection process. Some of the basic traits/factors included in the 20 pf test are adaptability, competitiveness, enthusiasm, leadership, stress absorption, etc.
There are 147 objective type questions based on the 20 traits which the candidate has to answer in 'yes' or 'no' within a given time frame. These answers are then analysed with the help of a special software programme to provide the score of various traits to determine the overall performance indicator of the candidate.
The test further helps to give a deeper understanding of the candidate's personality traits enabling the organisation to guide, train & manage him better. It also helps to avoid recruiting people who apparently look good during the interview but their psychological, emotional and mental capabilities are in conflict.
This is a tool which we encourage our clients to use so that the final choice is made by reviewing the test results of the 2 or 3 shortlisted candidates for each position. This tool can also be used to assess and develop existing employees on a scientific and reliable basis.
