Bain and BCG Pymetrics Test

The Pymetrics test is rapidly becoming a global recruitment tool for creating more balance in the character traits of organizations. The test is rolled out in many offices of BCG, Bain, and Accenture, as well as in other industries aside from management consulting.

The online assessment is constructed using behavioral science and neuroscience by the talent matching platform Pymetrics, and its aim is to discover candidates' social, emotional, and cognitive tendencies for predictability and malleability.

The consensus view is that the Pymetrics Test is not being used to disqualify candidates, but rather, it is used to gather objective data that identifies candidates who share similar traits with successful consultants.
