Almost 90 per cent of employers use some sort of selection testing, a new survey shows.
An IRS survey of 111 employers shows that testing is in widespread use.
The type of tests vary according to job description. Literacy and numeracy tests are the most common assessments, with more than 93.4 per cent of employers using them at some time.
Ninety-one per cent of companies use personality tests, at least on an occasional basis, to determine more qualitative, softer, insights into candidates. www.irsemploymentreview.com
