Service Psychological Suitability Assessments

Objective view of applicants

A Psychological Suitability Assessment provides an objective view of applicants as part of the recruitment process. In addition to the written assessment report, the supervisor can spar with the psychologist who made the assessment over the applicant’s operating methods and thinking patterns as well as the motivation behind their operations, thus getting more support for their decision. Based on the suitability assessment, the client gains an objective view of the applicant and an understanding of how the person should be supported and managed in their work so that they can perform as well as possible if chosen for the position.

A professionally conducted suitability assessment promotes confident decision-making, supports a positive employer image and boosts the candidate’s professional development. The assessment also provides the employee with the necessary tools for getting off to a good start in their new position. With the help of the assessment, both the supervisor and the employee can better understand the employee’s needs, way of operating and motivating factors.
