What Is The Most Reliable Aptitude Test For Hiring Employees?

Personally, I am a huge fan of the DISC profile.  This personality test measures the following four metrics:  D – Drive, I – Influence, S – Steadiness, and C – Compliance.  This test tells you a lot about how a person deals with conflict, informs you about how a member will work within a team, identify an individual’s communication style, and will help you build more productive teams.  This test will be most effective if you have everyone on your team take the test, then identify which types of future members you are looking for before giving it to your applicants.  You can find the test at multiple websites by googling it, so it is fairly accessible and cheap.  I, personally, have learned a lot about myself using this test a few different times in the past, and taught myself how to work more effectively with people in my groups with different personality types.  I highly recommend the DISC profile for you in this situation, and for anyone else who enjoys learning more about their working style.  I hope that helps, good luck out there!
