Integrity Testing

Integrity assessment enables us to help you select the candidates whose motivations accurately match your requirements. We can conduct interviews either face to face or remotely.

Who is this service for?

All employers want to make sure their potential employees will be the right fit for their organisation. Our service aid in evaluating the candidate's tendency to risky behaviours or unsafe practices.

Integrity Assessment is used in the workplace for hiring a wide variety of job roles, but it can be especially relevant when hiring for positions involving money, security, sensitive data, personal safety, or trade secrets.

What does this service offer?

We assess the level of integrity of a candidate or employee. A lack of integrity damages trust and is associated with counterproductive behaviours in which the employees voluntarily or intentionally get involved against the interests of their organisation.

How does it work?

  • We utilize the telephone interview that will take between 15 and 30 minutes. The purpose of this initial interview is to get some basic information, learn more about the candidate’s personality and determine if he\she is suitable for Integrity interview. At the end of the preliminary interview, the candidate will receive detailed information concerning the subsequent interviews.

  • We assess the level of integrity through a structured behavioural interview administered by a psychologist. The interview can be carried out in person or via videoconference. It will take between 45 and 60 minutes. Candidate responses to questions are documented, evaluated and rated accordingly. Decisions are made based on objective insights and rationality, rather than on personal "gut reactions" or candidate speculations.

  • Our technique comes from an established tradition of forensic interviewing and has been validated over the past 20 years, making it a highly effective and accurate tool. A clear and concise final report will be provided, summing up our findings. Reports are normally released within 3 days of assessment.

What we look at

  • Integrity is about being whole, complete and lacking nothing. Values such as responsibility, sincerity, consistency, compliance, conscious, pride and awareness play a major role in the value of integrity. People with a strong sense of personal integrity can be relied upon to do the right thing and stick to their stated values, even when no-one is watching.

  • Honesty is the quality of being truthful and sincere no matter what. An honest person tells the truth, is sincere, doesn’t deceive, mislead, act devious or tricky, doesn’t betray a trust, doesn’t withhold important information in relationships of trust, doesn’t steal, and doesn’t cheat.

  • Fairness is the ability to treat people as equal and do so in ways that, within that culture, are seen by everyone to be “fair”. Fair decisions are made in an appropriate manner based on appropriate criteria.

Lines of service

  • Studies show that of those employees who are terminated, 80 per cent are released for behaviour reasons. Only 20 per cent are terminated for being technically deficient or incompetent. A pre-employment integrity assessment is significantly beneficial for employers as it allows them to make better hiring decisions.

  • Periodic evaluations should be mandatory in some professions. People change over time and ongoing assessments can catch signs that a person may be dealing with issues that could impair his or her job performance.
