TRAITS CAN TRANSFORM YOUR HIRING PROCESS

Unlike other personality tests for jobs, we don’t measure a person’s style or “type.”
We measure the traits that drive work behaviour.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

You waste thousands of dollars every time you hire the wrong person.

Hiring people you “like” has a proven record of not working.

When you measure the wrong qualities, you keep putting people in the wrong roles.

If it feels like something is wrong with how we measure aptitude, you’re right.
 

Today’s hiring system is broken. Most pre-employment personality tests measure the wrong things and the result is frustration for everyone—leadership, HR, management, and new hires.
 

At TRAITS, we believe companies thrive and build strong teams when they understand and measure the essential traits that actually shape work behaviour.
