Inflated resumes and conventional interviews are often plagued by human errors, unintentional biases, and gut-feeling judgments that lead to miss hires. Recognizing these challenges, recruiters worldwide are turning to predictive talent assessments, a more scientific solution. These assessments involve a thorough candidate analysis, including experience, education, behavioral traits, motivations, and other factors, providing a scientific foundation to validate the recruiters’ selection instincts.

The Rise of Predictive Talent Assessments

Hiring the right person for a job is an age-old challenge. While traditional methods have their merits, they often miss the mark. Talent assessments, especially in the current competitive job market, have emerged as the answer. They provide employers with a window into the future, minimizing hiring uncertainties.

With over four decades in the industry and a client base of over 3,500, Self Management Group (SMG) has pioneered with its Predictor of Potential™ (POP™) Assessments. By comparing candidates against a vast database of 30 million professionals, SMG gives companies a predictive advantage, ensuring hires are selected based on their inherent potential and skills, not just qualifications.
