Personality Tests for Selection

Personality tests are standardized tools that measure traits related to an individual’s personality. These traits can be related to important workplace behaviors. Research shows that personality is an important predictor of job performance and, therefore, a valuable addition to a selection or succession testing program. Several research studies have demonstrated that personality tests can predict various workplace behaviors, such as: managerial performance; team communication; employee development; and overall job performance.
