Leveraging Psychometric Assessments to Assist Employers in Making Informed Choices




Traitily is a digital platform that leverages on normative psychometric assessments to quantify the suitability of a candidate to a particular role as well as the potential employer. Our artificial intelligence engine combines the results of the psychometric assessment together with other variables such as skillset, interest, salary expectations, and location to recommend suitable candidates for employers eliminating the tedious filtration process and lowering the risk of a bad hire.


  • 46% of all hires failed within 18 months
  • 89% indicate failure due to something involving personality & attitude
  • ONLY 11% of new hires failed due to technical incompetency

New hires (aka bad hires) fail due to a mismatch between their traits and the job. Bad hires are one of the most costly mistakes companies can make because they directly affect an organisation’s bottom line due to (i) loss of productivity (ii) lower staff morale (iii) monetary cost

Bad hires happen due to an Employer’s inability to access the right tools to assess applicant’s traits so they rely on traditional methods (such as CV matching) to filter and shortlist applicants – which in itself creates a couple of major inefficiencies:

  • The time it takes to review the application and gauge their interest (avg 10 mins per application, 17 hours of effort)
  • CVs lead to subconscious bias as they contain information such as; name, age, gender, ethnicity, religion, education, social status etc. which have little relevance to predicting on-the-job success.



Traitily is a digital recruitment solution that provides validated behavioral assessments to match candidates and job functions.

Currently in the recruitment industry there are 2 types of competitors:

  • Job Boards – i.e WOBB, Jobstreet, Linked In
  • Psychometric Assessment Service Provider – Psymetrics, Cubix, Pulsify, Traitify

Job Boards are historically based on the concept of quantity over quality. For every job campaign that is created, candidates will tend to apply regardless if they fulfill all the necessary criteria. The onus is always on the employer to vet through all applications to gauge suitability and interest. Traitily’s function is to eliminate this time-consuming exercise on the employer’s side as well as removing any bias that might exist. Traitily’s data driven algorithm converts the candidate’s answers to the psychometric assessment into a job fit score which quantifies their suitability to the specific job function. This helps the employer make an informed recruitment decision.
