Predicting job performance through personality testing: Improving the quality of research and practice at a Human Resources Consulting Firm

The Pathfinder Career System is a sophisticated psychological assessment tool that provides a high-definition portrait of an individual’s behavioural profile that focuses on the key attributes required for success in a specific job position. The purpose of this project is for Optimum Talent inc., a Human Resources Consulting firm, to be in a position to make optimal use of the test, by determining how it can be integrated into the current services offered by the firm and by pushing the tool further to respond to very specific client demands. The project will refine the Pathfinder by updating its competency models and definitions and developing content and tools that reflect these updates. The research project will also explore data collected to define data-based best practices and develop new solutions and services in 4 core areas, namely Selection, Career Management, Coaching, and Organizational Interventions.
