To effectively consult to organisations on workplace issues, PSI must collect personal, highly sensitive information from both client and candidate.
PSI has strict standards about the treatment of personal information and in particular, the treatment of assessment reports. We endeavour to conduct all our business in line with the National Privacy Act.
As per the Psychologists Registration Act 2000, PSI holds all records, notes and assessment results for a period of seven years. These records are held securely and in accordance with the National Privacy Act and cannot be shared with anyone or used for any other purpose without expressed instruction.
PSI does not use any personal information for marketing purposes nor does it pass this information on to other parties without express permission from the individual/s concerned.
Before partaking in the assessment, all candidates are made aware within a briefing email, that by taking part in the psychometric assessment process, the information obtained will only be shared by PSI with those at the organisation that have requested the report, involved in the recruitment decision or development activity.
Transferability of Report Findings – Job-Specific Recommendations
Any given report is prepared with a specific job function in mind. The findings must not be considered transferable to other roles for which the candidate may be considered. If information regarding the candidate is required for different purposes, please contact the report writer to discuss your needs.
