Psychometric assessment

Selecting the right people is one of the most important tasks of any business. Selection errors can be costly and difficult to rectify.

Psychometric and personality assessments can help you improve the quality of your decision-making by providing a rich picture of an individual, including information about things that are hard to see or that people sometimes find hard to describe.

At Urban Psychometrics we use psychometric assessments and cognitive ability tests that are proven through years of research, development and validation to predict the kinds of outcomes promised. We use leading test developers and have access to a variety of Australian and International publishers – giving us the flexibility to choose the most suitable assessment tools for your needs.

Popular Assessments

Assessments to help measure the things that are important to your business.

Cognitive Ability

Ensure your candidates are ready for the challenges of the role.

There is more data on the validity of ability assessments for predicting job success than any other method of selection. Cognitive ability tests help to identify people who can learn quickly, sum up a situation effectively and solve problems in the workplace.

Skills Test

Select people with the right skills.

Skills tests measure specific technical competencies – whether you need mechanical skills required by operators, clerical skills for administrators, sales skills or managerial and leadership skills. By employing people who have the right technical know-how, you’ll increase performance, reduce errors and maximise output.

Safety Assessments

Identify people who are more likely to behave safely on the job.

Safety assessments help to identify workers who have the right attitudes and abilities to display safe practices on the job – helping you to reduce workplace incidents and accidents.

Personality Assessments

Get the right people for the job and retain them.

Personality assessments can help you identify candidates who fit well with your business and are able to integrate smoothly into your team. They help identify personal qualities that influence how well someone will cope with different job requirements – such as problem solving, how they relate to others and how they cope with stress.

Emotional Intelligence

Identify emotionally intelligent and emotionally healthy people.

Emotional Intelligence assessments help you identify people who have the ability to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and emphatically. By selecting people who are more emotionally intelligent you are hiring people who are the most likely to succeed in the workplace.

Interests and Motivators

Find out what drives your people to perform at their best   

Interests and motivation assessments provide information about what elements and/or types of work lead people to invest more or less effort and gain more or less satisfaction from their work. By tapping into their passion and enthusiasm you are likely to get the best from your people and ultimately achieve better outcomes.
