Global Reach with a Personal Touch Transnational Executive Search

All part of the service

STEP 1

Assessments

We supplement interviews with a Personal Profile Analysis (PPA)1, a psychometric assessment. We assess a candidate’s strengths, limitations and motivations to complement our insights into behaviours and ways of working,

We are also certified to undertake extended assessments when required, using the Hogan Development Survey, the only validated personality assessment that identifies the dark side of personality.
