Behavioral testing during the hiring process is highly recommended but only under the following circumstances. First, you have to treat all of your candidates/employees similarly. For example, if you are hiring five new salespeople and you only test one, that can be problematic. Second, you should be sure to use a test that has construct and content validity – meaning they test what they say they are going to test and they don’t adversely impact any non-minority population. You can ask about validity and adverse impact results of any reputable testing company. Affinity HR Group highly recommends TTI’s TriMetrix HD Assessment.
