Assessments

Colin H. - Oct 21, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

I work for a federal contractor and we are considering adding a personality assessment by a company called Rembrandt. At a past employer, we stopped using personality assessments due to growing scrutiny on how valid they were in predicting job performance and the fact that we were not doing independent job analyses on each (of many) jobs we were using them on. Fast forward to four years later, and my new company of about 1150 employees wants to bring them in. My management isn’t as concerned about the chance we get audited and they dig into our assessment practices. Should I be worried and what can I show them to make sure they understand what the use of personality assessments might mean in an audit?
