PYSCHOMETRIC ASSESSMENT
Psychometric assessment tools are proven contributors to effective recruitment outcomes. Merit Solutions is licensed to administer personality assessments using PAPI (Personality and Preference Inventory). We can also advise on a wide range of options for psychometric assessment including Reasoning for Business tools which assess cognitive ability in verbal, numeric and diagrammatic reasoning at either operational or graduate/managerial level, Emotional intelligence and Values Identification and Congruence.

REFERENCE CHECKS
Our consultants will professionally conduct referee checks that identify both strengths and weaknesses of the candidates you are considering. Our experience helps us to identify “red flags” that require further probing.

BACKGROUND CHECKS
We can ensure that your new appointee has been carefully checked to verify their claims in terms of employment history, academic qualifications and reputation.
