How does your company approach recruitment today?

The challenge is familiar to most: You’ve been looking for a new star to join your team for a long time, and now it seems like you’ve finally found the right person. The person gets off to a good start, but unfortunately, things don’t go quite as planned and 3-6 months after recruitment, you have an employee who doesn’t live up to the expectations you had when you hired them.

With each passing day, productivity is suffering and you’re wondering what can be done – also for the sake of the employee. Before you’ve found the right solution, the employee may decide to leave because they, like you, can see that the organization and them are not the right fit. The story is not unfamiliar, with studies from Harvard showing that the majority of job changes occur within 12 months.

The solution actually lies even before hiring; a recruitment test.

A recruitment test matches the right talent to the job

As a manager or recruiter, what can you do to ensure you hire the right candidate on the first try? The steps are clear for companies and organizations that use the TT38 test in their recruitment process.

First of all, the role needs to be concretized to determine which specific talent will best fill it. The talent must not only match the tasks, but also the organizational culture and work well with the team leader. Once the manager has concretized this knowledge and made it explicit, the job posting can be written based on the talents.

This ensures that the right profiles are attracted to apply for the position.

The expectation at this stage is that there will be fewer applications for a given position, but that they will be more qualified. A hiring test among the applicants provides an opportunity to pinpoint the sharpest profiles that will fill the role best.

Talent targeting strategy: A recruitment test ensures the right match

As a user of a TT38 recruitment test, the next step for you will be to test the candidates with the tool. The criteria tested for in a TT38 recruitment test are:

– Person-job fit
– Person-culture fit
– Person-leader fit

By going through this process for your recruitment, you ensure that you only have candidates who have the right talents to succeed in the position you want to fill. The talents show where the candidate’s skills are most effective and also explain why they will be strong in the relevant areas.

With this understanding from the recruitment test in hand, all that’s missing are some qualified interviews where you can dig deeper into the candidates’ talent profile. That way, you can put their test results under the microscope and answer questions about talent maturity and the candidate’s talent-based beliefs/bias.

Once you’ve found the right candidate, it’s crucial to ensure a successful onboarding process.


A recruitment test provides more than just a safe talent hire. A meta-analysis of 1.2 million people showed the following relationship between talent-based employee development and company output:

– Customer engagement: 3.4-6.9% increase
– Employee engagement: 9.0-15.0% increase
– Profit: 14.4-29.4% increase
– Sales: 10.3-19.3% increase
– Low churn: 5.8-16.1% reduction
– High churn: 26.0-71.8% reduction

Statements from happy customers

"In DOVISTA, we view “selection” as one of our most important competences, as our ability to choose the right people for the right position are crucial to creating the optimal organization.

In HR we have until recently based interviews on 4-factor profiles, which is an excellent conversation tool, but at the same time we were aware that we were missing an analysis and development tool.

Therefore, we choose to enter a collaboration with Talents Unlimited on their TT38 “Talent test” which gives us new and better opportunities to put together teams and organization based on a thorough test. It gives us opportunities we haven't had before. The fact that we have chosen to become certified ourselves, is because we see the tool utilized far wider than solely for recruitment, which is why we prefer it in-house, which allows us to work more agile, by having the competence ourselves"

"Personality tests have the effect of providing a rather caricatured - and therefore limited - image of a human being. TT38 is not like that.

TT38 draws a nuanced profile that better takes into account the often very contradictory qualities we each possess. The conclusions are not limited to "blue personality with a little green, so this is who you are", but is based on data on a wide range of personal traits and takes into account the interaction between them. It is all presented in a relatively straightforward way and is complemented by knowledgeable questioning and interpretation by Talents Unlimited, allowing the final nuances to come along

The warmest recommendations from here for both recruitment, efficiency and sheer curiosity"

"Talents Unlimited conducted the TT38 Talent Test on everyone in our team. It has been an eye-opening process for all parties, where each of us has been identified with personality, values, human top talents and non-talents - as well as their paradoxes.

I, as well as employees, are now geared to individualize the types of tasks we each enjoy the most, so that we can solve them with the least possible energy and get the highest possible output.

I really feel that we have shaped the pieces and we can now start to puzzle and create some even better teams that understand and complement each other's talents.

It will give us a better bottom line. Economically as well as socially"

"In our selection of candidates, TT38 has
predicted the behavior 100% right each time!
The 3 times we chose not to follow the test
the candidate failed!"

"At Canon, we have a strong focus on hiring the right profiles that can succeed in our highly competitive market. Therefore, in collaboration with Talents Unlimited, we have used the TT38 Talent Test to define a success profile in sales that shows the talents a seller must have to be successful in our industry.
We can see that when we are loyal to our success profile, our success rate is higher in getting a salesperson to succeed in the job. This is of great benefit to both the employee and the company.
We have now gone one step further and have used the TT38 Talent Test in connection with team building in our sales team. The sellers and executives have become more focused on their talents and how they can become even better sellers, as well as how the sales team improve each other with each other's talent contributions"
