Assessments provide the data for individuals to understand themselves more deeply, much faster; they also help people understand others. Assessments help people become more self aware providing them with insights into themselves.  Managers take approximately 6 months to understand new employees, but assessments reduce that time making them efficient faster.  

"We hire people for their technical skills...
 but fire them for their behavioural faults."

Breakdown of Assessments

2. Behavioural  Assessment 


The behaviour assessment consists of three assessments and a menu of comprehensive reports:


  • Behaviour Assessment - assesses the behaviours of an individual at work and examines their communication, motivators, fears, natural style, work modifications and behaviour when under pressure. 

  • Job Profile  - enables you to quickly and effectively identify job success behaviours for any role at any level in your organization. This provides you with a standard against which to measure candidates’ job fit, and an ideal for developing current employees or those transitioning into the role.

  • Team Assessment - provides powerful data and enables a team to align with the business, understand how the team works, the strengths and limitations and the roles each individual fulfills to optimize on the contribution of the various team members.


3. Cognitive and Learning Potential Assessment


The cognitive ability assessment provides an indication of a person's learning potential, speed and responsiveness to new information. This reveals how a person approaches and copes cognitively with job demands, complexity, change, and pressure at work.
