Protect your Organisation from Dark Triad job candidates

HRHQ - 12th January 2018, Ireland
Three specific personality traits – Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy – combine to form what’s known as the Dark Triad. Each of us has elements of these traits in our personality but HR teams should guard against job candidates who have high levels of all three traits. Those candidates may seem perfectly suited to the role but actually they’re more likely to engage in deviant or counterproductive behaviour.

Why your Finance Director should care about assessment

But now there’s a very pressing reason why financial controllers – and other senior managers – should pay much greater attention to assessment.

Anyone who drives for a living - whether it’s a train, tram, lorry, bus, coach, ferry, motorboat, taxi, limousine, community vehicle or delivery van - has a fundamental responsibility for the safety of their passengers or cargo and their vehicles. Recruiters can now predict whether candidates for driving jobs are likely to be safe and vigilant in the role, says Richard Justenhoven.
