What cards can you play when a staff member simply doesn’t ‘fit’ your organisation?

    An interesting short article. I disagree that an organisational psychologist is needed to undertake such assessments. Many organisational development practitioners and career development coaches/counsellors are highly trainined and skilled in this area but aren't neccesarily org psychs.

    I think Tony B's comment is valid, and I used to be of the same opinion. However, if using a psychometric instrument as the basis for a vocational assessment, an organisational psych is probably best to interpret the results. This doesn't invalidate the expertise of organisational development and other HR specialists, it just recognises that there is a reason that psychologists have a degree in what they do.
