Procter & Gamble’s approach to employee selection is built upon a total assessment of key factors important for success in our work. The Company evaluates each applicant using defined criteria, and gives each applicant a similar opportunity to show his or her capabilities. The Company bases all decisions to hire on multiple sources of information, including resumes, application forms, tests and interviews. We have found that this approach results in fairer, more informed employment decisions than do other approaches.
Some factors which predict success, such as reasoning skills, are difficult to assess from resumes, application forms, or interviews alone. Therefore, we assess reasoning skills using this standardized test which has been developed and validated by comparing the reasoning skills of Procter & Gamble employees in relation to their success in fulfilling the requirements of their work. An applicant’s score on this test becomes one of numerous qualifications considered in deciding whether or not to hire an applicant.
