Almost every organization that runs these sorts
of psychobabble tests on their current members discovers that there is little or no correlation between peoples' test results and what roles they play in the organization. In other words, there is little or no demonstrable link between scoring "well" on any test and actually succeeding at any given job.

In addition to being the unproductive use of time,
effort and money that you cite, in the absence of any real evidence of test/qualification correlation, these tests may expose an employer to potential discrimination claims by candidates who maintain that the tests produce results that are biased against members of various protected groups.
