The results are competency-based and can be easily mapped to the requirement of a specific graduate position.

Call Centre Dilemma

It is a test of knowledge and behavioural response of a customer service agent to different scenarios. This is a good predictor of excellent performance on the customer service job.

Identity Personality Profile

The IPP is a multidimensional personality assessment that measures 36 personality traits. Scores for each trait are expressed as percentile rankings, and reflect how a person scored on that trait, relative to other test-takers.

The Resilience Questionnaire

The Resilience Questionnaire focuses on the aspects of an individual’s patterns of thinking, preferences and behaviour that affect their ability to respond positively to setbacks and challenges. The tool has a developmental focus, providing information about how each component of an individual’s resilience profile’ can be developed, as opposed to assessing whether an individual is resilient or not
