Interesting to see companies using different methods to recruit the best candidates for them. Long gone are the days that roles are secured by a simple Face to Face interview with the hiring manager. Now we have personality quizzes, assessment days, creative thinking tasks and.... brain scans? 

The idea behind a brain scan interview is definitely interesting. Scientists believe that this can test Ability to think quickly, Intelligence, Empathy and Levels of psychopathy as well as much more. However, with this comes risks too. Will this remove the human element completely? Could this be used to negatively discriminate candidates?

While I'm not sure that this is a method that we will implement here at Phaidon International, I'm keen to see what other concepts arise over the next few years that will effect the recruitment industry.
