Pre-hire Assessments Redefined

Wow, that turned out to be the wrong person for the job! Felt this way after recruiting someone you hired recently? I have and I know I am not alone. This happens more often than it should in the hiring process. Most companies make candidates go through a number of assessments in the recruiting process in addition to interviews. One of these common assessment types is psychometric tests. However, most such tests traditionally focus on text based questionnaires or go through a long-in person interviewing process with psychologists who then take their time in evaluating and sending a report to the client. Unfortunately, neither of these methods gives the candidate a real sense of what it is like to work in an organisation and is certainly not in plain English. This leads to a high rate of failure in identifying the behavioural characteristics relevant to the job!

Meet Journey, a simulation-based assessment that assesses over 13 core behavioural competencies all through constructed natural language responses. You don’t need a psychologist to decipher this test; the characters in the office simulation represent personality types and traits of ‘normal’ co-workers.
