Psychological personnel assessment, or suitability assessment, provides comprehensive information about a person’s personality, motivation factors, leadership style, and working methods. The results can be used for recruitment decisions, developing leadership and teamwork skills, individual orientation and assessing career paths within the organization.

In psychological personnel assessment, an individual’s suitability for a specific role and organization is evaluated based on predetermined criteria. The assessment does not address the applicant’s substantive expertise or personality in general.

Psycons personnel assessment supports informed decision-making in expert and leadership-level recruitments. The information can also be used in recruitment, onboarding, and personal career development.

Our personnel assessments are always tailored to the goals of the organization and each role. Our licensed psychologists use multiple methods and tailored tasks to ensure the assessment meets your organization’s needs.

We want to make the assessment process smooth and genuinely useful for the participant and the organization. At the end of the assessment, the psychologist produces a comprehensive report thoroughly reviewed with the recruiting supervisor. The applicant can discuss the results with the psychologist, even if they are not selected.

Personnel assessment can explore

  • Readiness to succeed in the position
  • Motivation, commitment, and expectations
  • Working methods
  • Problem-solving and decision-making skills
  • Cooperation skills
  • Leadership skills and potential
  • Behaviour and influence in various situations
  • General development potential and career orientation
  • Critical development and risk areas.

Accurate assessments in person or remotely

A single personality or ability test can never provide as reliable results as a psychological assessment conducted by a professional using multiple methods. We always use several research-based methods and tailored tasks in our assessments, conducted only by licenced psychologists.

In addition to tests, interaction situations are essential in forming a comprehensive picture of the applicant. The assessment is an opportunity for job seekers to present themselves and their abilities more comprehensively than in an interview alone.
