By Gaëlle Pritchard, Head of Assessment, Sheffield Haworth and Sue Colton, Associate Business Psychologist
In a rapidly changing business world facing multiple challenges, leadership roles and business needs are evolving at breakneck speed. Using psychometrics can be a great way of assessing capability and performance potential in the context of a specific role, team, or company culture. But how popular are they and how are organisations using them?
To find out, we conducted a small piece of research with some of our clients, primarily senior HR leaders in the financial services, technology, and consulting and professional services industries in May 2022. More than 80% of the respondents worked for businesses with a headcount of 250 of more, and almost all were multinational firms.
