Oftentimes, hiring managers will hire someone who impresses during the interview, but fails to live up to their expectations once on the job.  Since interviewing only gives you some information, a pre-employment assessment can give you the rest.  Testing can identify fit, uncover strengths and weaknesses, and clarify values.  Ensure your new hires will be assets instead of liabilities while reducing turnover costs.


A pre-employment assessment can assess intellect, executive skills, judgment, motivation, insight, maturity, interpersonal skills, and much more.  HRMC has wide and deep experience in identifying, administering, and interpreting a large number of psychological assessment instruments, including, but not limited to:
