Handwriting Analysis Can Get You Best Candidate

Recruitment can be a costly and time-consuming process and anything that can help an employer ensure they get their choice right first time is to be welcomed. An expert analysis of a candidate’s handwriting can help recruiters find out about the real person behind the perfectly constructed CV and application form or the interviewee who has presented well and given all the right answers.

Graphology is an economical, cost effective tool for revealing a person’s strengths, weaknesses and potentially hidden talents because it cannot be manipulated. While an interviewee may give the logically correct answers to questions and can even produce the ideal answers on a psychometric test they cannot change their handwriting without extensive coaching and practice.

Most HR professionals and employers make a list of essential qualifications and experience, perhaps a wish list of “extras” they would love to find, but however rigorous the selection process may have been, sometimes, once the chosen candidate has been in post for a couple of months it begins to be clear that they perhaps were not as ideal as they seemed.

If, for example, the role needs soft skills such as good negotiating and communication and an ability to control their temper when under pressure, a person may be able to demonstrate these skills at interview but their handwriting can reveal a different story.

How much better to have this knowledge available at the early recruitment stage and to be able to screen out unsuitable candidates at this point avoiding costly mistakes later.

Using graphology analysis can not only cut down on the initial recruitment costs it can also help in the longer term. Getting the right person for the job will improve the company’s staff retention rate, saving on the costs of having to re-hire at regular intervals.

It can also help with team building if the company is looking for people who are open to staying with a company to build their career and have the right qualities to be able to learn and grow. Handwriting analysis can reveal whether a person is someone who values stability and is likely to stick with a company.

When it comes to a company’s development plans handwriting analysis can also help. Graphotherapy, which is a series of exercises that help people change their writing and thereby get rid of the more negative parts of their character, can help a company bring out the best in their existing workforce. Graphotherapy consultancy can either be offered to individuals within the company, or more economically in a group workshop to help a company develop its teams and its business.
