Administer Critical Thinking Assessments For All Positions

We’ve all experienced the frustrating wait server who just doesn’t seem to get it. No matter how they try, they have a hard time working through complex orders. Conversely, hopefully you’ve had the pleasure of being waited on by the sharp, quick thinking server who finds creative solutions for the unexpected curve balls.

Critical thinking aptitude is important in all jobs. Unfortunately, many hiring managers do not bother assessing for critical thinking skills for lower level jobs.

A strong critical thinking aptitude may not be necessary to complete job functions and may not be a hiring criteria but that doesn’t mean hiring managers shouldn’t test candidates for it. Knowing the mental horsepower of every team member allows leaders to develop appropriate succession plans, assign workloads appropriately and understand who may need extra challenges to remain engaged.

Empowered hiring managers assess the critical thinking skills for all roles and build stronger organizations.
