Advanced Skills Testing and Selection Tools
Aaron Wallis includes a Popular psychometric tool, Sales Profile Analysis (SPA) together with a choice from over 100 skills tests as standard.
However, we also offer a range of highly advanced psychometric testing tools as an 'added value service'.
Perhaps you want to utilise a sales-specific psychometric, test raw brain processing power, test emotional intelligence or indeed even general intelligence.
The more you know about an employee, their strengths and development areas, their preferred learning style, their limits and skills, the better they can be managed and the better results you can expect from them.
Aaron Wallis staff are qualified to administer most of the commercially available skills testing tools in the UK. Speak to your Aaron Wallis consultant for more information.
Aaron Wallis with British Psychological Society accredited staff at both Level A and Level B are able to administer virtually almost any commercially available psychometric tool.
Advanced psychometric tests that are recommended by Aaron Wallis are as follows:
Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire, EIQ
These are chosen as they are well constructed and highly validated tests that are easy to use by candidates and employers that are not trained on using psychometric tests.
To discuss other psychometric tools and upgrade options please call Aaron Wallis on 01908 061400
What's included in the standard Aaron Wallis service?
Aaron Wallis include skills testing in all of their recruitment services as a standard inclusion.
Popular tests that are already included as standard are:
Skills validation - languages, IT, technical skills
Industry knowledge validation - of all of the major industry sectors - testing jargon and general industry know-how
Verbal reasoning (basic and intermediate levels are offered in our standard service)
Numerical Reasoning (to advanced general levels is already included in our standard service. More specific scientific numeracy testing is available as an 'added value service')
Written and verbal communication (to advanced general levels is already included in our standard service)
Spelling and Grammar (to advanced general levels is already included in our standard service)
We use the Sales Profile Analysis as standard in our recruitment process, a widely recognised DiSC based psychometric that is quick, effective and provides a valuable interview aide. The SPA is included in our service.
Added Value Services Available at a Supplement
In addition, we offer a wide range of more in-depth advanced testing services available as an 'added value' service. Aaron Wallis offers these tests at the cost to clients that are recruiting in conjunction with Aaron Wallis.
We are trained administrators of many psychometric tools and can, therefore, offer impartial advice on the best tool for testing candidates to find your requirements.
We can also offer more advanced psychometric testing solutions including behavioural testing, emotional intelligence testing and advanced sales skills testing.
Thomas International TST (Tests for Skills and Training) Testing: TST is a tool that assesses 'raw brain processing horsepower' in essence how quickly an individual processes, retains and deploys information and is an excellent indicator of fluid intelligence and fast-track potential. It tests in five areas: Perceptual Speed, Working Memory, Numerical Speed and Accuracy, Reasoning and Special Visualization, and then benchmarks each test against the UK working population and the entire result against the UK working population. The test is taken in a classroom environment and has to be overseen by a qualified Administrator. TST Testing really does demonstrate if an individual has the right mental attributes to succeed and has proven to significantly increase the chances of making the right recruiting decisions.
Emotional Intelligence Testing. We utilise the Thomas International 'Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire' EIQ that takes 25 minutes and assesses how an individual copes in an emotional context in various workplace situations. It indicates traits such as stress management, optimism, self-motivation, self-esteem, adaptability, expression, impulsiveness and general happiness. The EIQ is particularly useful for individuals that are leading teams so that they are aware of their limits and can introduce coping mechanisms to deal with situations as they arise.
Occupational Psychologists: In addition, we work with a team of freelance occupational psychologists (many of them chartered) to help you in your interviewing process. Costs are typically £350-£700+VAT per day dependent on their chartered status and their field of expertise.
Substantial discounts on all of our advanced testing services are available to all of our clients if they use Aaron Wallis to source the sales talent. See here for more information on our advanced psychometrics.
