IF you want to make better recruitment decisions, develop staff or offer career guidance help is at hand with psychometric assessments.

Douglas-based firm TLC Business Solutions is running a range of psychometric assessments developed by UK company AQR Ltd and Dr Peter Clough, head of psychology at the University of Hull.

The assessments can be used in recruitment to help make better decisions, in assessment by providing more information about an individual and in career guidance in terms of helping to steer and direct, explained Sue Gee, managing director of TLC.

The tests can all be done online with results supplied by email within minutes.

'You read in to it what you choose as individuals and depending on how aware you are you could be sending yourself down the wrong line.

'If you are putting someone through an assessment and you have got a manager that isn't following the generic guidelines of leadership and management any form of 360 assessment is dangerous in the wrong hands,' said Sue Gee.

'The whole idea of having assessments if they are used correctly is to add value and develop and grow people. If used incorrectly they are dangerous tools to be had.'

Prevue is a comprehensive occupational measure or career mapper.
An assessment of abilities, motivation and personality, Prevue takes about an hour to complete.

MTQ48 is said to be the world's first measure of mental toughness.

'It's a measure of what we would call bounceability and stress management,' Ms Gee explained.

It assesses an individual's capacity to deal with stress and challenge.

It provides an understanding of why one person succeeds and another struggles when the pressure is on and enables organisations and individuals develop approaches to help them perform under pressure.

The MTQ48 assessment can also be used to recruit and develop staff more effectively around key areas.

For employers mental toughness results in better measurable performance, improved morale and a better working environment, better ability to recruit and develop people who can handle stressors, and improved wellbeing.
