I wholeheartedly agree that properly validated psychometric tests provide huge value in every recruitment process and should be invested in no matter the level of role you are recruiting. I disagree, however, that candidates should complete a test as the first thing they do in your process. We use @HoganAssessment or @ThomasInt_UK depending on the level of role we are recruiting but only when we have met a candidate. These assessments help to support our interview findings and provide areas of concern for our clients to explore in their own assessment process. We never encourage them to be used as a "computer says no" decision!
