What was your role before joining Oxford HR? 

Before joining Oxford HR, I had experience working within the Human Capital Management Department for an IT company as part of the Assessment team. I worked across accounts, assisting private and public sector clients in different industries. This consisted of me assisting with assessments, report writing, quality assurance, data analysis, forecasting, and anything else that came our way. Once I left this company, I started working for a global organizational consulting firm. We worked with clients to design optimal organization structures, roles, and responsibilities with a move towards more organizational development work. I assisted with job profiling and evaluation, competency profiling, job description development, and consulting with clients in this position.

What do you feel you can bring to clients? 

I believe I have a positive attitude in which regardless of the request I am happy to brainstorm and find the most effective and efficient solution that is beneficial for all parties. In this regard, I utilize my background in organizational psychology to provide a client service that is focused on understanding others and providing solutions aligned to their requirements.

In your opinion why is it important for candidates to go through psychometric tests?

I think it is always important to put the right person within the right position and organization. This will allow individuals to feel motivated within their jobs and add meaning to their daily activities, which will in turn provide positive outcomes for the organization. Psychometric assessments assist with this, as it provides insights into an individual’s preferences and abilities in an unbiased manner. Furthermore, psychometric assessments allow for identifying strengths, development areas, and growth opportunities for all candidates.

What is your favorite book of all time and why?

I currently read many articles about my field and research, which consumes a lot of my time. Still, I would have to say one of the best books I have read up until now would be To Kill A Mockingbird because it has a lot of themes that have thought-provoking aspects, such as the exploration of human nature and whether, as people, we are morally good or evil. Overall, it was just an interesting read that made me reflect on many aspects I could take within me in everything I do.
