Hire for success

Research shows that top performers have a tangible impact on your organisation’s success—across all roles and industries.

Increase productivity

Studies show that the top five per cent of employees produce up to four times the output of the rest of the team.

Reduce involuntary turnover

Reduce the high cost of replacing employees by better understanding candidates before you hire.

Improve time to productivity

Training and onboarding new employees takes time. Top performers are quick learners and respond more effectively to training.

Success can be simple

A valid cognitive ability or general mental ability assessment (GMA) is a sure-fire way to know if candidates are truly top performers.

Spot the difference

Great skills, qualifications, years of experience, an impressive interview and impeccable references—sounds like you’ve found your person, right?

The truth is while all of these factors can help you identify your best candidates, the reality is even simpler.

After analysing more than 85 years of research across 32 000 job applicants and 500 different jobs, Frank Schmidt and John Hunter came to a surprising conclusion.

The usual factors we typically depend on to predict good performance aren’t as reliable as we might think.

This study found that people with higher cognitive ability are more likely to:

  • learn faster
  • respond well to training
  • solve problems more effectively
  • have superior reasoning skills.

    General Mental Ability (GMA, also known as cognitive ability) can be considered the primary personnel measure for hiring decisions and one can consider the remaining personnel measures as supplements to GMA measures.
