HOW IT WORKS

The Power of TRAITS Centers on the Science of Psychometrics

The power of TRAITS centers on the science of psychometrics—the field of study within psychology concerned with the theory and technique of measurement, testing, and assessment. We’ve applied the x-ray-like vision psychometrics gives to the field of personality assessment for employment. Over 26 years, we’ve finely tuned our tool and insights to be specifically focused on qualities that describe how people perform in their jobs.

We help you quantify exactly what the job needs so that you can easily measure which people are a good fit. TRAITS’ world-class psychometric testing reveals a person’s motivations, strengths, and likely behaviours and compares these against the job requirements.
