The science of personality

It's getting easier than ever to apply for a job and with that increase in candidate activity, there's also a increase in the difficulty of finding your next great hire. How do you weed through your interviews? How can you compare candidates fairly? How do you reach a deeper level of understanding about your potential hire that goes beyond their resume? Personality assessments can help answer all those questions and more. When used during the hiring process, they help increase the odds of hiring the right person, decrease the risk of early turnover, and improve team cohesion once a new hire is brought onboard.
