Staff and candidate testing
Staff testing is a service which entails performing tests to discover respondents’ personality traits and the effect of various factors on workflow and motivation. Test tools and methods also help obtain information about leadership qualities of specialists and managers.
Why use testing? Testing will help employees and candidates better understand their personality traits, enabling them to make informed choices about vacancies and companies which would be a perfect match of their capabilities and desires. When compiling a CV, candidates will be able to emphasize their personal strengths, with the wording taken from a professional testing system and supported by test results rather than being a mere assertion.
Companies will be able to select employees best suited for the position. For example, it will be easier to see at once whether a candidate will feel comfortable working in a given team or in a given psychological climate, whether he or she will be able to cope with the workload, and whether the ‘stress resistant’ part of their CV will prove to be true. At an interview, you will be able to verify the test results and complete the picture with your personal impressions.
We are pleased to offer a range of options for staff and candidate testing so that you can make the right, informed choice.
When a service is neededTesting is necessary when you have to choose from a range of candidates for a top-level position, all of whom have nearly identical professional competences. In such a case, testing will help you understand the candidates' inclinations and personality traits and find out in advance which of the candidates will better ‘take root’ in your corporate culture.
HR managers will also find test methods useful in mid-level employees recruitment as they give a means to instantly assess the probability of staff turnover through understanding candidates' true motivation.
Your current employees can also be tested. This will help the manager understand which way each of them ought to develop, which is important because employees who grow in their workplace usually stay loyal to their company and don't want to leave. You'll have not only loyal but also stronger employees because you will be able to put your effort into developing their strengths. This, in turn, will yield higher profits for the company.
Candidates will find testing useful for building their career strategy and forming clearly defined criteria for their future job. They'll know what vacancies to apply for, what tasks and responsibilities to avoid in order not to burn out, and what kind of environment will let them achieve the best professional results.

Stages of staff or candidate testing
Types of tests
This is a personality test which can help in developing one's career and in selecting the best candidates. The test is organized in such a way that there are no so-called socially acceptable answers, so candidates give unbiased and more honest answers.
Candidates: the test will help you choose a suitable vacancy by comparing job requirements with your personality traits.
Employers: testing will help build efficient teams, understand factors that motivate and demotivate employees, and analyse how stress and competition affect employees.
Emotional intelligence is the ability to build effective relationships with other people in order to achieve work objectives or attain the desired quality of life. An EQ test will give you an understanding of yourself and other people and will enable you to use this knowledge to achieve your goals.
Candidates: the test will highlight your strengths and growth areas in emotional intelligence (EI). You will learn more about the ways in which your self-motivation and self-control work, and about what you can do to become even more efficient, both in your work and in your personal life.
Employers: testing will help minimize recruitment errors, see in advance whether a candidate's or an employee's profile matches a job profile, and devise a program for employee leadership development.
General Intelligence Assessment (GIA) is a test for assessing a person's level of general intelligence. It consists of five online tests of basic cognitive abilities: thought, language, decision making, learning, and memory. The overall score measures the respondent's ‘learnability’.
Candidates: the test will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. You will receive a detailed profile report with a breakdown into five segments:
speed of information comprehension;
logical reasoning ability;
numerical reasoning ability;
ability to operate objects in imagination;
verbal reasoning ability.
Employers: the test will give you not only a detailed picture of a candidate's aptitudes but also an idea of how quickly the person can adapt to a new position or responsibilities. The method demonstrates what duties the employee is most comfortable with and what cause tension and discomfort.
The Leadership Skills test based on PPA (Personal Profile Analysis) helps identify a person's individual leadership style, their potential, and their strengths and weaknesses as a leader.
Candidates: the test will help determine your personal style of communication and presentation, assess your time management and planning skills, show your possible growth areas as a leader, and point at the leadership style which you will find the most effective.
Employers: the test will identify the leader's strengths and potential weaknesses. It will demonstrate a leader's (candidate's or employee's) decision-making style and show how it correlates with the profiles of his or her current or potential employees.
