Aptitude tests increase risk of recruitment discrimination

More
than half of all employers may be unconsciously risking discrimination through
a careless use of aptitude tests during the recruitment process.

Research
by Croner shows that 53 per cent of HR professionals now use aptitude tests
when recruiting, with many failing to adapt the test for individual needs.

Richard
Smith, an employment law consultant at Croner advised employers to consider
individual needs when setting the test such as disabilities and whether English
is the candidate’s first language.
