Legal recruitment to benefit from assessment service
1st February 2012
In recent years, psychometric testing and other in-depth personality assessment techniques have grown in popularity within recruitment; in response to this, the British Standards Institution has developed a new international standard which should mean more consistent and reliable data is analysed by recruiters to help ensure businesses are even more confident of hiring the right person.
The standard has been jointly developed by expert bodies such as the British Psychological Society and the Ministry of Defence and is designed to create a benchmark within the recruitment industry. Although compliance with the standard will not be compulsory, it is hoped that many assessment providers will sign up to it, as it will require recruitment staff reach an agreed level of proficiency before taking important decisions.
Legal recruitment agencies in London are expected to broadly welcome the introduction of the standard, which also encourages greater collaboration between providers and the organisations they recruit for.
