Enterprise Hiring Platform
Pre-hire profiling tests, like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the DiSC Personality Test, do not predict job success.
Instead, profiling tools reinforce stereotypes that encourage managers to seek out people like themselves. Profiling institutionalizes a preference for a particular demographic, which flies in the face of ensuring diversity of types of people brought into the company.
When trying to gauge an employee’s work style and how they’ll fit and work with others, a profiling tool offers little more insight than a “Which Game of Thrones Character Are You?” Buzzfeed quiz.
When flawed and inaccurate profiling quiz results are used to measure new hires against, organizations may end up with a workforce that very closely mirrors the existing workforce, creating a complete lack of diversity.
