The process of assessing the team culture
Assessment takers get two or more assessments to fill out through one unique link you share with them. In these tests, users are asked to select statements or words that are most like them in terms of their behaviors or approaches.
Managers and employees are asked about the company’s culture
In the full test package, employees are asked to describe themselves (their styles, attitudes and behaviors)
After each assessment, individuals get feedback that helps them understand themselves — they get a snapshot of how they think, act and their values
Individuals also get to see the team's results
You as the manager - and the company - cannot see individual employees' results, so that everyone's privacy is maintained and people feel at ease, to give you a better snapshot of the team as a whole
Your team members’ individual results are not visible to you in order for you to take 1:1s offline
We’re turning the tables to change how job search and recruiting work
We think recruitment is broken. No one should spend days or weeks sweating over CVs, useless cover letters, and then endure hours of exhausting interviews with no guarantee of success. This is why we want candidates to apply once and get matched to teams. At the same time we're providing you as managers the screening toolkit to measure your direct applicants and team culture, in order to make hiring for culture fit and hiring for diversity effective and data-driven.
Leverage psychometrics to build teams that perform
A tool for managers to build high-performing teams that drive your company's culture growth. As culture is not only about top-down behaviors but team values, it means that who your hire and fire determines your company culture. To know it you have to 'look under the hood' and the most data-driven, empirically proven way to do it and measure culture is through the use of psychometrics. We catalyze this using machine learning in psychometrics, and by deploying online assessment tools for recruitment on top of your team culture assessments, in order to help you build and develop your team.
