Over 80% of Fortune 500 companies use psychometrics for talent development and management. Hiring, assessing, and appraising people is a highly complex and subjective process, and psychometric tests are a good way of objectively assessing people’s personality preferences and “hidden” traits. From recruitment to long-term career development, psychometric instruments provide a great deal of reliable information to make important talent related decisions.
