Are You Doing All You Can to Determine Right Fit?

Personality assessments are old news, right? I mean, 89% of the Fortune 500 use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to evaluate their new hires. They’ve been doing so for years. Personality assessments are even in use in middle schools these days to help teens start to explore their career interests. However, there’s a new and growing application: assessment of job candidates. Business advisory company CEB reports that 62% of human resources professionals are using personality assessments to vet candidates in the hiring process. If your organization doesn’t use pre-hire personality assessments, now may be the time to explore them.  A purpose-built video interviewing solution like Montage’s platform could be your easy entry into this hiring practice.
