RESPECT FOR INDIVIDUALITY
Tests are developed by a multidisciplinary team under the concept “think globally, act locally”, which respects the unique cultural factors of Brazilian candidates.
Our tests are subject to stringent requirements as to the criteria of independence and clarity. Our examiners/consultants receive training and continuing education seminars in centralized and decentralized manner. All this care allows us to achieve a high degree of reliability and the margin of error – always present in any test – is maintained within very narrow acceptable limits .
The structure applied to each evaluation is tailored and defined with input from the HR. Tests are performed on demand, at the company or remotely, and HR determines the media, place and dates.
