HighMatch Personality Assessment

Teamwork Skills Assessment

Teamwork is the process of working collaboratively with a group of people to achieve a goal, requiring cooperation and a willingness to work together despite any personal conflicts.

Teamwork Test

Teamwork governs a candidate’s ability to work well with others and put aside individual contributions in favor of team success. Willingness to sacrifice personal wants is what separates team players from those who favor working alone.

How to Assess Teamwork
in an Interview

During an interview, you have the opportunity to ask interview questions to test a candidate’s attitude toward teamwork.

  • Ask the candidate to describe instances in which they have worked with a team for a shared goal.
  • Ask them how they have worked through differences with colleagues, and how they approach relationship building.

If the candidate fails to take ownership of failures or if they fail to acknowledge their teammates’ contributions to successes, he or she may not be a team player.

Some other red flags are speaking negatively about team members and an inability to offer ways to work through issues to build relationships with teammates.

HighMatch provides interview questions tailored to each candidate. Each guide offers questions based on each person’s personality and skills, making it easy for you to ask thought-provoking questions.

Having trouble diving deeper into your candidates’ potential? Our Interview solution offers a playbook for consistent, objective questions to help you get the most out of your interviews.


The HighMatch Teamwork Skills Assessment

HighMatch tests for analytical skills using its cognitive aptitude test provided through our Assess solution, and offers the ability to couple these personality assessments with skills assessments from our massive library of tests.

Our workplace psychologists conduct a benchmark study to understand what qualities are most critical for the role, analyze the qualities that top performers share, and then develop a customized Job Profile that includes personality traits, abilities, and skills.

That Job Profile is used to develop the scoring and weighting mechanism for the assessment, helping to identify whether the person is a high, medium, or low fit for the job.
