Preemployment Psychological Evaluations
Psychological evaluation is an effective way to gauge candidates' suitability for high-risk roles in the military, police and fire departments, nuclear power plants, security-sensitive positions, and more.
What are preemployment psychological evaluations?
For police and public safety roles, reliable preemployment testing requires a licensed psychologist who is also a specialist in police and public safety psychology. Lead psychologists with Atlantic OccuPsych have long been involved in developing best practices and have been highly active in writing professional guidelines.
After a conditional offer is made, objective psychological testing combined with a face-to-face interview can identify risk factors such as impulsiveness, difficulty managing stress, negative interpersonal personality characteristics, poor work attitudes or other characteristics that might impede successful performance.
