The Science Behind Successful Hiring

TalentSorter uses the same rock-hard Behavioral Science Fortune 500 companies rely on. Delivered simply, without the Fortune 500 price tag.

Industrial psychology and behavioral science are a ‘mature’ body of knowledge. The models that have been in use for more than three decades are tried and true, and the vast majority of the assessment products in the marketplace today are built on the ‘Big Five’ personality traits – Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Stability and Openness.

TalentSorter is different, in four important ways…

More Traits

First, we’ve taken those five traits as our foundation, and added twenty more to help you get a real sense of the individual. This allows us to present you with a much more complete image of the whole person.


Second, we know a ‘Housekeeping’ applicant should not have the same questionnaire as a ‘Sales Executive’ applicant, because each job requires a very different set of traits for the person to be successful. So, using extensive job analysis data, we designed a patented process that only asks questions related to the most important traits for each specific job role.

Less Time Wasted

Third, the biggest complaint about assessment products is that they take too long. Depending on your requirements, we offer accurate assessments that take just 10-15 minutes, or a ‘full version’ that takes up to 45 minutes.

The ‘Fit First’ Approach

Forth, better insight into job fit leads to better hiring practices, better employees, happier work environments and more success for your company. We believe hiring for job fit is so important that it should be accessible and affordable for all businesses big or small!

TalentSorter Measures What Matters

We help people and organizations make better choices, by collecting more accurate, intelligent information about the things that are most predictive of success for both the employer and employee. There are three levels of questions that need to be answered, and the resume barely gets at the first:

CAN this person do the job? – skills, education, availability… collected in the online application form

HOW will this person do the job? – based on their personal traits and characteristics, are they a good fit for this particular job?

WILL this person do the job, and WHY? – standards, attitudes, values… is this person a good fit for the environment here?

How We Measure 'Best Fit'

TalentSorter integrates an questionnaire/assessment component into the job application process, which is deeply rooted in some very advanced science. TalentSorter’s unique design compares the personality traits and other attributes of the person taking the questionnaire to those of people who have been high performers in that particular job role. Upon completion of the job application, TalentSorter then uses its advanced data analysis to generate a FitScore® for the applicant, which can be used by employers as a very accurate predictor of success in that particular role.

How is this person likely to behave as an individual?


How is this person likely to interact with others?


How is this person likely to approach their work?


How is this person likely to embrace change?


How is this person likely to weather challenge and adversity?


The FitScore®

As mentioned above, TalentSorter's intelligent design allows it to compare the personality traits and other attributes of an individual to those of people who have been high performers in a given role; thus, generating a FitScore® that is a very accurate predictor of success.
