Sales Team Psychometric Assessments

Why SalesMatch psychometric assessments are pivotal for recruiting and retaining top talent

Companies often face significant challenges in hiring the best sales people. Since you’re investing valuable time, money, and resources, you want to make sure you get it right the first time… but how can you truly know how a candidate will perform until they’re actually in the role?   

Finding the right salesperson requires a strategic approach rather than impulsive decision making. Snap judgment leads to biased decisions, it does not provide a clear picture and a great CV does not mean that a candidate will fit in well with your company’s brand and environment.  Considering there are a total of 48 different sales personality types, it becomes clear to understand that there really is no ‘one size fits all’ sales role. 

Utilising sales specific psychometric assessments and the 48 personality profiles helps enable managers to play to their sales team’s individual strengths and make the most of their unique potential.

Our personality traits impact our approach to our job, our willingness to learn new skills and our ability to build successful relationships. But just how important are those traits as predictors of sales success?  

 SalesMatch psychometric behavioural assessments eliminate guesswork from the hiring process and provide insights into a candidate’s character traits revealing relevant aspects of his or her personality.
