Frequently Asked Questions
Our reports, unlike most, focus on your candidate’s reputation – in other words, their answers in the assessments reveal what others say about them based on their past behaviour rather than how they perceive themselves. Past behaviour is the best indication of performance so you can accurately predict their future success.
In a word, No. We are not a recruitment company, in fact, we are the opposite. 3DV works under the ethical belief that people should be in jobs and companies that fit with who they are. A happy employee is one who stays. Plus we don’t work on commission so our sole interest is helping you hire the best possible person to fit your role and company.
Once you’ve shortlisted your candidates we can come in and assist you. The ideal number is 2-4 candidates and we can feed back the results to you once they’re all completed or individually. If you only have 1 prospective candidate, that is fine too.
- A feedback phone call regarding candidate suitability (with an expert)
- A bespoke written report (by a human not an algorithm)
- Peace of mind about an important hiring decision
- Further conversations, advice or correspondence if needed.
No. We stand by our work. If you are unsatisfied with our service you will not be sent an invoice.
This is an understandable concern although in our experience it doesn’t happen. Pre-hiring assessments are now part of the modern recruitment process so most candidates are used to it. If they are not and express concern, we can help you explain, in a straightforward manner the benefit to completing the assessment.
We absolutely can! If you would like to discuss this please get in touch. At least 50% of our clients engage us to provide an ‘on-boarding’ session for their newest recruit to help them hit the ground running.
Yes. Our assessment tool of choice is fully approved and positively reviewed by the governing body, The British Psychological Society. It is also the same tool used by the top headhunting firms in the world. We are happy to provide further information about this at request.
No. All questions have been constructed, tested and ratified by the appropriate bodies to ensure they have no adverse impact or discriminate against any peoples.
The British Psychological Society who set best practice for psychometric assessments highly advocate giving ‘understandable’ feedback to anyone who has taken an assessment. 3DV are able to send detailed reports on the candidates results directly to the candidate or via you. This also looks good for your brand as it shows that even if they were unsuccessful you have made an effort to further their development.
We can turn around assessments and feedbacks within 36-48 hours. We have done this quicker as long as the candidate is pre-warned about the need to complete an assessment and as long as they have an hour to spare.
In statistical terms, it is twice as accurate as interviewing is. We can provide evidence of this on request. We recommend that the most accurate way to assess an individual’s likely job performance is through a combination of subjective processes (interviewing, CV etc) and objective processes (3DV).
