Benefits of Pre-Employment screenings
Pre-employment health checks are some of the most important yet overlooked part of the hiring process.
• Suitable, capable employees fit for work
• Reduction in psychosocial injuries
• Reduction in claims and insurance costs
• Match the capacity of the employee with the role
• Candidates may be made aware of previously unknown medical conditions
What is involved in a Psychometric Assessment?
Psychological testing is an objective strategy to assess the suitability of a candidate for a job. These assessments strengthen your selection decisions by providing accurate, reliable and impartial information on a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses in relation to inherent job tasks. The research indicates that the cost of replacing the wrong hire is between 50% and 150% of an employee’s annual salary.
Initially, our psychologists determine the inherent psychological demands of the role and work environment. Once psychological demands are established, an appropriate psychometric test and set of psychological assessment procedures are specifically designed.
Assessments can be scaled from basic screening to comprehensive evaluations to identify the best candidates for leadership, safety-critical or complex roles.
Candidates are assessed against
- Coping & Resilience,
- Exposure Trauma and Violence,
Types of Psychometric Tests
Our psychologists have access to the following tests:
- Coping Strategies (CSA)
- Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence (EI) Assessment (MEIA-R)
- Executive Functioning (BRIEF-A)
- Personality Profile (NEO FFI-3)
- Test of Abstract Reasoning (TAR)
- PTSD Trauma Screening (PCL-5)
- Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI)

Andrea was absolutely amazing. She was professional, but she was friendly and explained everything we were doing. I was quite nervous about the fitness test as I really want the job I was being tested for. Andrea took time and care to make the experience stress-free and in hindsight, I was nervous over nothing. I cannot speak highly enough for Andrea and I was actually going to reach out on my own to provide a positive commendation on my experience but I didn't want to be perceived as intending to 'bribe' or 'alter' the report. As I've now heard from my potential employer to confirm that they have received the report, I'm so happy to provide this feedback.
Rajvi conducted herself in a very professional manner and made me feel relaxed right from the beginning of the assessment. She remained personable and understanding throughout, she was also clear and concise. I'd recommend her to anyone. Finally, I felt we were having a conversation rather than me being assessed. Thank you
Luke was very helpful and explained what I needed to do and showed me beforehand. He was very knowledgeable and made the experience easier as I had never completed a pre-employment assessment before.
I would highly recommend Rui to people and so happy to give him the highest rate than 10 if possible.
Albert was very professional, attentive, good knowledge, easily built trust and rapport. Recovery Partners have a great employee/asset in Albert.
9-10 Michelle was very polite, explained what needed to be done.
Maya was extremely welcoming with presenting herself with the questions at hand, allowed me to speak freely and had made me feel very comfortable. Maya was great all-round.
We welcome your pre-employment medical enquiry!
Be confident that your candidate is confident working in the role.
Our reports comment on the candidate’s presentation, responses at time of the clinical interview, and their results on the psychometric tests. This includes recording the candidate’s understanding into their own mental health, and if they are aware of psychological hazards and stressors, and the productive coping strategies needed to manage.
Why take the risk? A psychological assessment provides highly reliable predictions about how a person will function within a role or organisation. Better alignment to role requirements result in improved productivity, better retention, employee engagement, and positive safety cultures.
