Psychometric Testing

Psychometric testing reduces the risk of making the wrong hiring decision
Better hiring decisions
through scientific testing


Hudson’s Psychometric Testing incorporates science in the decision-making process to reduce the risk of making the wrong choice about vital issues such as:

  • Internal selection and recruitment
  • Staff development
  • Identification of high-potentials
  • Succession planning
  • Team-building
  • Identifying strengths and weaknesses

Understanding what motivates people and how they think, feel and react adds enormous value to the decision-making process. By measuring intellect, personality, values, motivators and interests, psychometric tests identify an individual’s critical strengths and highlight development needs.

Identifying the connections between competencies and personal qualities allows companies to select those candidates who are not only likely to perform better, but who will also be a good fit to both the company culture and role. This ‘fit factor’ can be difficult to ascertain through interviewing alone, but can prove to be a major component of selecting and retaining the best people.

Close collaboration delivers outstanding results

Close collaboration is necessary for truly valuable psychometric testing. It is Hudson’s priority to consult with key stakeholders to ensure we deeply understand your company culture and the roles within it, therefore matching best-practice standards with each organization’s unique requirements.

Hudson’s team of organizational psychologists will advance your use of psychometric assessment by:

  • Establishing company-specific benchmark data
  • Undertaking concurrent or predictive validation studies
  • Undertaking high-performance modelling exercises
  • Incorporating behavioral assessments such as work simulations or individual / team exercises
