Do you represent a recruitment agency or otherwise assisting a company as a hiring manager? Presumably you already have questionnaires on stress resilence in place. However, there may be room for improvement. Our stress kits can be added to your repertoire, or we can assist in adding or improving psychometric tests that are relevant to the position in question. Each job is different and requires the ability to handle different stressors, whether it be the type, intensity or chronicity of the stressor.
Hiring a candidate that cannot cope with the pressure of the task can be expensive both to the business and also to the worker themselves.
It is quite natural, and even beneficial, for anyone to feel stressed during a stressful event. The stress response system is, after all, there to keep us alive. --What is important is how one handles the situation and how the hormone levels recover after the process is over. Each job is different and requires the ability to handle different stressors, whether it be the type, intensity or chronicity of the stressor; for this reason our stress consultants work closely with your hiring team to devise the best measures on how to ethically and safely mimic appropriate types of stress.
More and more businesses rely on psychometric testing during the hiring process. This form of aptitude testing can tap cultural values, reasoning skills, personality and leadership styles, to name a few. Stress resilience is also something that hiring outsourcing agencies try to capture through questionnaires. However, this may not quite measure true resilience, since the respondent may not be able to emerge himself/herself into the situation fully, or may want to put themselves into a good light. Persometrics's stress report kits can be tailored to aid in measuring through hormone response. We can also mimic true stressful situations, always within ethical boundaries.
Our team is fully competent in both quantitative and qualitative methodologies and as such we do not limit ourselves to set ways of data gathering or analysis. Rather, we focus on obtaining the best quality data for the project at hand, analysing and making sense of these data before translating them into actionable deliverables. We tailor surveys which can be hosted on our very own servers; see an example of what we are able to do by taking one of our free questionnaires, such as our simplified IQ test.
