Participants first answer a series of simple questions about their working preferences. This helps us understand which areas of the universal competency framework they are strongest in, and where they might require some development.

Next, we quickly and reliably match this understanding to a scientifically chosen profile, based on your hiring or development requirements and relying on more than 40 years of assessment experience.
