Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Yes, it is possible. We can build a customized assessment for your organization, taking into account your organization’s unique needs and accordingly determine the combination of behaviors that determine success in your organization’s context.  Please write to us for such a request and we would be glad to work out a solution for you.

We take special steps to lessen the probability of candidates striving to portray themselves in a socially suitable manner at each stage of tool development. Listed below are some of the steps we take:
 
 1. The item format of the assessment – the ‘semantic differential’ format – was intentionally adopted to make it challenging for participants to presume the suitable response and ‘fake’ to enhance their test scores. The items are available in a format that prompts the candidate to thoughtfully think about his/her preferences and select between two identically ‘desirable’ statements.
 
 2. Before starting the assessment, the candidates are given information on the test format. They are required to respond to the items based on their first instinct and not to think too much about their responses. Accompanied by research emphasizing the importance of ‘instructional warnings,’ they are advised against impression management or faking and are informed that their test reports might be declared invalid if they present their responses dishonestly.
 
 3. The tool determines particular patterns of responses and specifies in the report if the individual has tried responding to the assessment in a suitable or socially appropriate manner. 

It is possible to do so for different job roles for your organization. We follow a scientifically valid benchmarking process. Please write to us and we would be glad to assist.

The proficiency levels(thresholds)are based on the normal probability distribution for a specific norm group.

The insights generated across industries and verticals of multiple organizations is periodically updated in the Mercer | Mettl database. We always ensure that newly added data gets incorporated while preparing the reports.

Human behavior is a projection of several environmental and psychological factors. So, it's not advisable to interpret any psychometric report as a definitive predictor of a particular behavior type. So, these reports should be consolidated with various other sources of information and thoroughly validated before making professional decisions about the candidate.
 
 If you notice any discrepancy in the reports, which factually deviates from the individual's actual behavior, always refer to other physical, environmental, and psychological factors influencing that behavior. For the best combination of assessment tools for your specific needs (i.e., job/functional tests, psychometric assessments, behavioral interviews, etc.), please reach out to us. Our consultants would be happy to address your queries.

The sales assessment test is an essential tool for employers to assess candidates’ personality traits and professional skills. Employers analyze three crucial aspects through this tool, namely personality profile, sales skills and technical skills. 

Psychometric tests for sales recruitment evaluate candidates’ abilities through verbal and numerical ability tests, ensuring that the candidate’s knowledge and skills are up-to-date. It also does sales and personality profiling of applicants to uncover hidden personality and character traits that are otherwise hard to identify.

Listed below are the five most popular types of sales management jobs:
 
 Outside sales
 Inside sales
 Hybrid sales
 Sales support
 Consultative sales

Being a phenomenal salesman would seem imperative for a sales manager, but in reality, supervising the entire sales function, including the sales department, demand skills beyond being exceptional at selling.
