Hi!!
Many companies are finding a problem like they take a interview of a person and offer him a job but that person refuse to join the company for any X reasons. But companies they find it that this wastage of cost. And they want to know whether is there any tool available through which they can make out the motivation or a need of a person so that organizations can decide whether they want to continue the interview process or not.

I would like to know is there any such technique available if yes what that?
Or can we take any psychometric test through which we can understand prospects need?

Dear Ms Aparna Sethi,
According to me psychometric test will be taken to analyze a person attitude but no body will get shortlist with that prospect only other parameters will be considered at the time of interview.
Yes we can attract or motivate them by highlighting their package and individual growth (Role & responsibilities).

Many times candidate decide this coz they get negative feedback about company like related to salary, bonus, hiring firing strategy....i think first we need to find out why they dont join and then we can make sure that we clear all these doubts during interview only.
I think this need research work coz reasons will vary from person to person...
Meanwhile will try to find tools to find this...:icon1:

Dear Aparna,

You've got a valid concern! Psychometric tests give credence to the personality quadrant and type leading to behavioural prototypes but not everything can be assessed to the last detail. The human mind is indeed very complex and motivation (intrinsic or extraneous) vary between individuals. These tests, if monitored via an external vendor's server have costs attached per test and therefore can be expensive.

A battery of tests can be applied on job prospects to assess their job interests, interest in the hiring Company or type-of-job likeability/aptitude. But, believe me, most that I have found are deceptive and reveal they are no where in terms of an accurate assessment. Tests often tend to be very mechanistic; less flexible or behaviourally inclined to changing situations and circumstances. Human mind takes care of these.

Tests for this purpose will work on fixed judgemental patterns, simulations, non-inductive reasoning and mathematical model of state memory. Some one(s) researched and made them in different work environments and applied them on experimentation groups to derive a fixed mindset or induced reasoning that's very limited in their scope.

Instead, before applying the psychometric test if so, it may be good if you develop a custom-built survey-questionnaire/forced choice pre-questionnaire on pertinent issues such as, say,
  1. Reason for evincing level/degree of interest in the Company and the job in order of preference,
  2. Job aptitude,
  3. Intrinsic/extraneous motivation factors,
  4. Preferred job content,
  5. Preferred work exposure,
  6. The ideal boss,
  7. Issues & concerns concerning new employment,
  8. Company branding, amenable working conditions,
  9. Willing at re-location,
  10. Commutability,
  11. Compensation expectations,
  12. Family constraints,
  13. Stringency/irrelevance of selection procedure,
  14. Employment terms & conditions, etc.
Motivation to join may be influenced by one or more of these reasons and more. If these could be assessed/rectified, the strike-rate of test deposition versus joining may be addressed better.

HR may just be all about focussing on the problem and evolving innovative, workable solutions.

Dear All,
Values drive behavior are linked to needs and people strive to satisfy lower needd before higher order needs.
Traits predispose people to behave in a prefered manner.
Psychometrics tests like Values Motives Inventory (VMI), 15 Factor Questionnaire Plus (15FQ+) and OPP from www.psytech.co.uk with reliability of over help you predict performance and decisions of people fairly well. This can be further probed using BEI process.
In case you are a MA/MSc, psychologist, enroll for for our accelerated certification program on 19th Feb 2009 in Ramada Palmgrove Juhu Mumbai.
Best Regards,
