Personality & Leadership Assessments

How can you make an informed decision around which candidate would be the best fit for your organisation, team and role? How can you better understand your current people in order to retain and bring out the best in them? Personality profiling can provide you with the answers. When used as part of a recruitment process, or to develop your current people, Personality Assessments can add an extra layer of insight & certainty around strengths and areas for development. At TalentEdge, we have many different options for personality assessment, from basic packages to comprehensive leadership profiling at the CEO level.

Personality Assessments can indicate essential elements of work performance, like motivation, leadership, values, communication and working styles, and even occupational suitability.

Situational Judgement

Situational judgment tests assess decision-making capabilities. Candidates are presented with work-specific situations and asked to judge how they would respond to a potential work dilemma. Candidates review a range of multiple-choice answer options to determine which is their preferred solution. This test is available at the Executive level, as well as the Managerial and Graduate levels. TalentEdge can take you through each assessment to determine which one might be best for your needs.

Sales Test

A skillful sales force is vital in today’s competitive markets. Fortunately, a variety of tests are available that look at a candidate’s sales potential—from sales and distribution of specific items (SAP) to telemarketing simulations. Options include:
