Emotional Intelligence in Recruitment

Make wise recruitment decisions

Organisations are integrating Emotional Intelligence into Recruitment when selecting and hiring new employees, through to development and talent management initiatives in human resources, through to transitioning people into other positions.

Why is it important to integrate emotional intelligence into recruitment?

Emotional Intelligence is a set of skills that help us better perceive, understand and manage emotions in ourselves and in others. Collectively they help us make intelligent responses to, and use of, emotions. These skills are as important as your intellect in determining success at work and in life. Emotions influence, both productively and unproductively, our decisions, behaviour and performance.

Published psychometric studies have shown that scores on the Genos assessment meaningfully correlate with a number of important workplace variables. The higher people score on the Genos assessment, the higher they tend to also score on measures of:

• Workplace performance • Leadership effectiveness • Sales • Customer service • Resilience

• Team work effectiveness • Employee Engagement
 

Emotional intelligence screening

The Genos emotional intelligence recruitment survey is the best measure of how often a candidate demonstrates emotional intelligence in the workplace.

The Genos model, shown above, comprises a set of seven emotionally intelligent competencies. Competencies represent skills and behaviours, based on underlying abilities and experiences, that are measurable and observable. The Genos model captures the workplace skills and behaviours that manifest from emotional intelligence abilities.

The white, right side of the model shows the productive states that are typically attained by a person who demonstrates the corresponding behaviours frequently, whereas the grey, left side of the model shows the unproductive states that may be observed of a person who demonstrates the corresponding behaviours less frequently.
