Along with personal interviews, psychometric tests, background checks, the science of Graphology is being increasingly used by HR professionals in the recruitment and hiring process of their organizations.

Today’s challenging economic environment provides no room for errors in hiring as the wrong recruit for a role would be expensive in terms of cost and of the organization’s reputation – both of which cannot be afforded under any circumstance. It is therefore imperative to have the right person for the right job at the right time at the lowest possible cost for an organization to survive and thrive in today’s business world of heightened competition.

Let us first understand what Graphology is and how it works so that its impact on the recruitment and hiring process becomes clear. Our way of writing is very personal and no two people in the world have identical handwriting just as no two personalities are exactly alike. It has been proven through years of study and research that the inherent character traits of an individual shape his or her handwriting style and pattern. Graphology is the study of handwriting samples to make deductions as to the mental structure of the writer – how she tends to think, why does she think in that particular manner, how does she react to certain circumstances, what are her key traits and so on. It delves deep into the psyche of the writer and goes beyond the controlled and conditioned personality that is on display for the world into the inner recesses of the mind and the heart where no one normally has access.

When it comes to applying for a job, candidates put their best foot and of course their best faces forward. The interview questions are carefully deliberated upon before being answered so that the candidate is able to highlight his or her strengths and abilities and camouflage the flaws. It is important for a recruiting organization to know that they are not hiring the wrong person for the job during their recruitment and hiring, and therefore they seek the help of a Graphologist in order to understand the profiles of their candidates better.

A Graphologist first works with the human resources team to understand what is the job profile for which the recruitment and hiring is going to be done. They make a list of the attributes which an ideal candidate should possess in order to be a perfect fit for the role. Following that the Graphologist analyses the handwriting samples of the potential candidates and helps to identify those who possess the personality traits and strengths in alignment with the job requirement and makes her recommendations. The human resources team then takes the recruitment process forward.

Graphology recruitment and hiring is now a proven and an acceptable part of the recruitment and hiring process in many large organizations all over the world.

These are certain steps that follow by a HR prior applying analysis for candidate screening as follows:

1. Candidate Screening: This phase include analyzing personality traits in candidate and analyzing if candidate will also be accessed for specific traits.

2. Candidate Profiling: A complete profiling, personality traits, strength and potential of candidates will filter and detailed report will send to senior authority and HR.

3. Peer Compatibility: Report not only includes information related to strength and weakness of the candidate but also includes the intellect, trustworthiness, values, honesty, talent and liability towards company and lots more.
