How Useful Are Personality Tests in the Workplace?
Hiring is similar to getting married after a couple of dates. Selections need to be made quickly, without the opportunity to know a person beyond an interview. Personality tests can be quite valuable, because they provide deeper insight into candidates who may not have otherwise come to light. Use them, but treat the results as “one more component to the puzzle,” rather than a be-all and end-all. —Jackie Ducci, Ducci & Associates
