Thomas' view on the ethical application of our assessments

Fairness and ethical use

Ethical and fair use of psychometric assessments is at the forefront of our recommended practices. As the assessment practitioner, your core ethical responsibility is to ensure that nothing is done during the assessment process to harm the candidate. This means that a proper assessment policy should be in place to ensure the process adheres to ethical practices before, during, and after assessing candidates.

  • Test taker communication, feedback and complaints.

Labour laws

Local labour laws differ across the globe regarding the use of psychometric assessments. Thomas endeavours to provide the best local guidance through our network of global distributors.
