The Benefit of Psychometric Tests

Time and money are often wasted on poor recruitment choices and while skills are important, it is often a poor behavioural or values fit which leads to recruitment remorse and staff attrition. Our tests are designed significantly decrease the guesswork when recruiting, and ensure managers and employers know they are recruiting the right person for the job, and the company as a whole.

Psychometric tests give businesses across South Africa powerful insights into the individual’s behaviour, identifying their key motivations and the types of jobs they would be best suited for. They give you an idea of how someone will perform under stress, how they will communicate with others, their strengths as well as areas for further development.

Currently InterACT measures 3 core elements of the individual—their DISC Behaviour, Personal Values and Trait Emotional Intelligence. These are all completed online for ease of use.

Recruit the Right Talent

Select people who are the ideal fit for the role. Choosing people on skill alone can lead to poor staff retention and motivation issues further down the line.

Identify Development Areas

Identify where an individual may have difficulties in the job and how they can be developed to better fit the specific job requirements.

Motivate & Engage

Know what will motivate or demotivate someone and form strategies to keep your people engaged with their work.

What You Get Out Of Our Reports

Our psychometric reports highlight important behavioural details about the individual and how they operate in the work environment. They provide suggestions for potential roles the individual would be best suited for and identify their common communication styles. Key factors which affect their motivation at work are noted. The reports also offer managers and employers a starting point to further develop and train staff for a role.

Creating benchmarks for specific jobs and businesses is an important part of psychometric testing. Our job match reports allow employers to see how an individual’s DISC, Values or EQ profile measures up against the needs of a specific job. This gives you a clear idea of if they are a good fit for the role, or where they may potentially struggle.
