Revealing insights that can be crucial
There would scarcely be anyone at any level of management who would argue with the proposition that people are the most important assets of any organisation. They can also be the source of significant problems.
People are complex. They can often be driven by unconscious motivations that might never become apparent. Formal qualifications are not necessarily a reliable measure. Valuable talents might remain hidden, potential clashes with management, other employees or an organisation's culture unknown.
The development and application of psychometric testing is regarded as one of the great achievements of psychologists in the last century, allowing comprehensive, high-quality assessment of people and their skills and personalities. It provides more accurate information about human behaviour than any other means of assessment.
A competitive advantage
The use of psychometric testing has grown substantially in recent years to identify specific abilities, personality traits; literacy and numeracy etc.
Psychology Melbourne has made a significant investment in building a portfolio of high-quality tests to assist organisations to learn more about their people and the work they do.
Our experienced psychologists can also provide input, support, and recommendations on the interpretation and utilisation of testing data.
What are some signs suggesting the need for psychometric testing?
When tests can help
A psychometric testing program may be needed when you are experiencing the following issues with your business and its employees;
- High staff turnover
- Low morale
- Conflict and destructive politics
- Negative culture
- Poor communication
- High absenteeism
- Failure to meet goals
How the services work
Our highly experienced corporate psychologists work with management to tailor an effective testing program. Tests are then provided online for completion, and results are received and analysed by our psychologists.
Results and recommendations are reviewed with management, with options provided for on-going actions and support.

The Judgement Index™ measures the quality of people's judgement in more than 70 areas.
The unique, scientifically validated Judgement Index™ measures an individual's judgement and decision-making capacities. The JI has helped overseas organisations save or make tens of millions of dollars, and it has just become available in Australia. Psychology Melbourne has the only accredited user on the eastern seaboard.
The ultimate success of an individual or organisation hinges on the strength of judgement applied to apparently trivial tactical decisions or large, global strategic decisions. Studies have shown that personality profiles on which conventional personnel assessment tools are based simply do not predict success. Interviews alone, whether structured or unstructured, are not highly reliable indicators of future job performance.
The Judgement Index™ is a predictive tool that can quickly and accurately measure the key ingredient in successful outcomes: the strength of judgement.
