Personnel selection and development? Suitability assessment?

Conduct testing economically and make informed decisions with the Vienna Test System HR

The Vienna Test System HR is modular in design and fully customizable: a wide range of psychological tests (personality tests, intelligence tests, ability tests, interest tests, etc.) is available, enabling the best tests for a particular requirements profile to be selected.

Comparing psychological tests and assessment centers

While other assessment tools such as interviews, assessment centers or CV analysis yield information about candidates’ behavioral repertoire either now or in the past, psychological tests focus on people’s longer-lasting and more fundamental characteristics. The assessment of potential thus not only helps to distinguish between candidates who are currently suitable or unsuitable but also identifies those who are likely to develop quickly in the direction of the requirements profile.

Improve your recruitment with psychological tests

When combined with your structured interview the tests of the Vienna Test System HR provide sound and reliable information about the degree of similarity between the job profile and candidates’ profiles. The structured, standardized and objective process ensures that the same conditions apply to all applicants, so that all have the same Chance.
