Decision-making skills are required in many roles and at any level. Those that can make reasoned decisions when faced with difficult situations are often more productive and efficient in their roles.
An individual's performance on the job can be significantly affected if they cannot make logical decisions, or struggle when faced with a problem that requires them to determine the best course of action.
Given how essential decision-making skills are for any employee, assessing this as part of the recruitment process is important. In addition to helping you shortlist the most appropriate candidates, it can also provide further insight into additional competencies and skills that individuals demonstrate when in a workplace environment or when faced with a complex challenge or difficult situation.
