Why Use Personality Questionnaires When Recruiting?

Valid and reliable personality assessments quickly uncover the soft skills associated with success in accounting and bookkeeping roles, assisting employers in identifying:

  • Whether a candidate is likely to value and support your organisation's culture, competencies and aspirations.
  • How they are likely to interact with colleagues, clients, suppliers and other key people.
  • How they should be managed and motivated to get the most from them.
  • How they are likely to deal with change, solve problems and make decisions.
  • What they are likely to add to – or detract from - team performance.
  • What personal development plans are required to get them from good to great performers.
  • How they are likely to deal with the stresses and strains of the job.
