Psycometric Testing With PeopleWise
Mon 6 February 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 IST
Peoplewise is a leading business psychology firm with extensive experience in the design and use of psychometrics in recruitment and development. Psychometrics are tests specifically designed to measure capability and aptitude. Peoplewise has developed a new psychometric test to measure mental agility - the ability to think clearly, flexibly and strategically under pressure. Mental agility is a key capability for predicting job performance, and is frequently used in graduate recruitment and leadership development.
In collaboration with Birkbeck careers department, peoplewise is offering an exciting opportunity for students to gain experience with psychometric testing and to receive feedback on their results. Students will also get the opportunity to hear from an experienced business psychologist consultant about the use of psychometrics in recruitment, and the development of mental agility. There will also be the chance to talk to consultants and ask questions.
This experience will be delivered in two parts, and students will need to commit to both sessions to be involved.
All data is anonymised, stored securely and will only be used for research and psychometric validation purposes. We will not share your data with Birkbeck University or any other third parties.
