Why use a personality test in recruitment?


Recruitment is the most significant investment in human resources (50 K€ on average for a permanent position). Yet, nearly 50% of recruitments fail within the first 18 months, according to Leadership IQ.

In 89% of cases, these failures are due to inadequate behaviours: incompatibility with the team, lack of interest, or motivation. Only 11% are related to a lack of technical skills.

To mitigate these risks, it is crucial to understand an individual's behaviour: their way of working, interacting, handling pressure, and making decisions. Personality analysis is essential for predicting a candidate's adaptation and performance.
