DiSC® Profiles for Recruiting
Many organizations are using DiSC® profiles to help determine which candidate is the best fit for an open role. However, DiSC® profiles measures an individuals behavioral traits, and tendencies, their personality, and as such, DiSC® does not provide valid information on how an individual will successfully perform in the role.
To determine if a candidate is a good fit for an open role, you will need to determine the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform successfully in the role. In addition, you must assess the core competencies specifically aligned to the role and the core values an individual must possess.
A more accurate tool to assess candidate fit, aligned to a specific role, is the PXT Select assessment. This assessment utilizes a profile, benchmarked against Fortune 500 companies, to determine how an individual will successfully perform in the role. PXT Select measures thinking style, behavioral traits, and interests required for each role.
While DiSC® can be utilized to help onboard successful new hires into the organization, it is not supported as a tool for recruiting. An alternative solution when looking for an assessment for recruiting is PXT Select. The PXT Select report provides you with an overview of how an individual scored on thinking style, behavioral traits and interests; provides you with a guide for interviewing this individual; and provides a detailed outline of the individuals strengths and opportunities.
