Assessment Tools


The well-being of an organization relies vitally on the right talent! A recent survey of 780 CEOs1 showed that Talent Shortages are now the number-one topic in the minds of CEOs, ranking higher than operational execution as their top priority. Attracting and recruiting the right talent in this talent-constrained situation is getting tougher ever!

Despite high unemployment rates in many countries, the competition for skilled talent has never stopped. Companies need screening tools to weed out unsuitable candidates and discover potential. We implemented refined pre-hiring psychometric assessment tools tailored to job context for our Clients, which resulted in improved hiring quality. We helped them to attract more competent candidates, reduce turnover, and drive a higher performance rate. Besides looking at the right fit in terms of personality match with the job role, we extend the assessment to map the candidate’s values toward your organization's cultural fit as well.
