Welcome to eRecruitSmart, an ISO accredited recruitment solutions business where we are committed to providing high-quality recruitment services that are tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients


In today's fast-paced world, businesses are constantly looking for ways to improve their recruitment process and ensure they hire the right people for the job. One of the tools that we offer to our clients is the use of psychometric profiles. Here we’ll discuss the benefits of psychometric profiles for businesses, the DISC system and how it works, as well as the importance of feedback and remote working reports.

Benefits of Psychometric Profiles for Businesses


Psychometric profiles are a valuable tool for businesses in many ways. Firstly, they can help to identify the best candidates for a particular role. This can save a significant amount of time and resources that would otherwise be spent on recruiting and training the wrong candidates. Secondly, psychometric profiles can help to ensure that the candidate has the right personality and working style for the company culture. This can lead to better job satisfaction and reduced employee turnover.

The DISC System and What It Means


The DISC system is a widely used tool for measuring personality and behavioural styles. It is based on the work of psychologist William Moulton Marston, who identified four different behavioural traits: dominance, influence, steadiness and conscientiousness.


The DISC system measures these four traits and assigns a score to each one, which can then be used to create a profile of the individual's personality.

The four behavioural traits measured by the DISC system are as follows:



This trait measures the individual's level of assertiveness and control


This trait measures the
individual level of sociability and ability to persu
ade others


This trait measures the
individual level of patience
and stability


This trait measures the
individual level of attention to detail and adherence to rules

All our tests are as free as possible from gender and cultural bias, enabling you to ensure an objective assessment is made for each candidate.


The DISC test is a self-assessment questionnaire that is completed online and typically takes around 20-30 minutes to complete.  The Psychometric Profile test consists of a series of statements that the individual must rate based on how well they describe their behaviour. The results of the test are then analysed and used to create a psychometric profile of the individual.

Our Psychometric Profiles include these features:



  • General topics in areas such as Motivation, Communication Style and Decision Making

  • More specific subjects include aptitudes for Management, Sales, Service and more

  • The unique intelligent reporting system gives highly specific results

  • Reports are available in PDF forms which will be available in the ATS we give you


  • There is a personalised Feedback Report designed to give practical feedback and advice

  • General topics cover such areas as Core Values, Strengths and Relating to Other People

  • Feedback reports also provide advice on topics such as Personal Development and Career Planning
