Summary

The primary purpose of assessments in the workplace is to enable you to get to know the characteristics of a person before you employ or contract them.  Our assessments are extensively used in recruitment, appointment of staff, retrenchment and restructure strategies

It is very costly to make a wrong employment decision.  Not only is it a lost salary/termination cost but it could cost you in theft/fraud and the wrong decision will definitely cost you in lost time in lack of progress and ripple effect to other staff.

The concept of integrity is a complex construct with several facets  that include personal and group ethics where ethics refers to principles and rules that govern a person or organization. Integrity speaks more to the application of  these rules and principles in a way that is honest.

Integrity also refers to a state of wholeness within the individual, group or system which brings cohesion and togetherness, qualities which are vital to individual and group success.

Some assessments claim to assess integrity but focus merely on counterproductive work behaviour and are covert in nature presenting as personality tests. Our point of departure however is that Integrity is a positive construct and should be approached as such.  The assessment of Integrity should be open and overt from the get go so as not to undermine the very concept.

Our aim is that Integrity assessment should enable a decision on the best person to employ and also to be used to build and train people in the area of Integrity, and to guide organizations in making decisions that reduce their risk and positively impact their bottom line.

Acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses, forms part of the cognitive process.

Cognitive strengths and abilities can greatly affect the performance of an individual in executing tasks.  In finding an ideal candidate for a role or function it is vital to have an in-depth understanding of their cognitive strengths.

Aligned to the Elliott Jaques Stratified Systems Theory our Cognitive Assessment gives clear guidelines to the individual’s capacity across the spectrum from purely operational  to strategic.

With sufficient time we are capable of learning and solving most problems, however in a performance driven environment where time is money solving problems efficiently is essential for success.

Our Cognitive assessment is a time based evaluation of an individual’s natural strengths.  Based on a test, teach, retest formula the assessment evaluates both current mental ability and optimal learning potential.  This reveals what the person is using currently and what they are capable of.

Personality typing has traditionally given insight into human behaviour through classifying  individuals in different categories.  Our focus however has rather been on understanding an individual’s traits, behaviours and tendencies that are pertinent to the work environment.

Certain behaviours have been identified as fundamental to a cohesive and cooperative working group and through our Personality assessment  we focus on these.

The work environment places demands on an individual and group that are different to other environments, and ensuring that a person fits the culture of an organisation is vital to the success of that person and the group in which they must function optimally.

Through our personality assessment you obtain accurate insights into the person you are planning to hire or the employee to wish to develop.  Aligned to work place skills this assessment empowers decision makers with deeper insights into tendencies and behaviours that directly impact performance and cooperation in the world of work.
