The average cost of a mishire is 300% of their annual salary. Do not miss the best for the job with Psychometric Testing.

Culturally aligned candidates are just as important as qualified and experienced candidates, and we put only the best-suited candidates forward, confidently backed by data-driven reports and highly focused assessments and testing. Making sure you can retain 96% of new hires for at least the first year of employment.


CVs are not and have never been reliable enough to hire a person on the spot. If they have succeeded in impressing us and make it to the interview stage, it is only natural to make your own judgements as soon as they step through the door. We believe everyone deserves a fair shot. 

Psychometric testing takes the guessing game out of the biased opinions we develop upon reading and meeting candidates for the first time. It provides a solid foundation and platform for testing the personality and behavioural traits of any given person and allows us to make a data-driven decision on whether a candidate fits not only the role, but the culture of your company too.  

This also eliminates candidates who have a high chance of leaving the position and company before their first-year anniversary, despite their level of education and qualification.

Using psychometric testing in your recruitment process helps to ensure you recruit the right people, in the right positions, who adhere to your business practices, values and beliefs.  

Why? Because you have employees who will WANT to go above and beyond, as they resonate with the culture of the business and begin creating a home within your company.  

Uncertain of your company’s culture? We offer an assessment tool that allows us to investigate and identify your businesses culture, as well as your best practices, and provide you with a solution that will have your team performing at the highest level and standard.

Psychometric testing offers you a powerful selection tool – provided it is used in the right way.

Unusually for the profession, we assess all candidates at the beginning of the recruitment process to provide you with objective data before subjective impressions kick in. This means you will only spend time interviewing people who are aligned to your company culture and exhibit the personality traits that you require.

We’re so confident in our methods, we’ll back each placement with a 12-month post hire risk reversal policy.

By giving you a selection of world-class business solutions, you can be rest assured that partnering with us, you will always be well cared for.

Our Psychometric testing partners.

Psychometric testing brings greater objectivity, and reliability, to selecting, managing, and developing employees. We use the McQuaig toolset widely, not only in our selection work, but also in our executive development, business improvement and cultural assessment services.

McQuaig provides the gold standard of psychometric testing in the workplace, and we have partnered with them. Our agreement allows us to test every candidate, which would normally be cost prohibitive.

Founded in 1966, McQuaig is a Canadian Psychometric Testing provider. Their user base extends to 1500+ companies, speaking 17 languages in over 30 countries. Their assessment tools measure key characteristics, such as values and beliefs, aptitude and ability, and employees’ performance as managers and team players. 

With them you can make more objective, reliable decisions about the people you hire, manage, and identify key development arears and plan accordingly.

There is more to selection than psychometric testing (of course), but it gives you objective information to support your hiring proposals.

It also gets you buy-in from hiring managers, who will have been involved in benchmarking the tests during the McQuaig consultation process. 

This can be an enlightening process. Have the leaders in your business ever had conversations about what values and behaviours lead to success. They will certainly be discovery by the end of the process. You will see, graphically, where majority opinion aligns or where points require further discussion.
