Proven Scientific Assessment Tools
Behavioral assessments identify employees who are well matched to their jobs
How employees behave on the job—how they work with others, manage teams, strive to meet goals, overcome setbacks, or analyze problems—is directly connected to the achievement of job-related objectives. Behavioral assessments identify people with the potential to succeed in a role and can sift out candidates who are not suitable based on the required behaviors.
SHL offers the following behavioral assessments. Each offers an engaging experience for the candidate that reinforces your brand and image.

Cognitive Ability Assessment
Cognitive ability assessments identify the candidates with the right abilities and potential to succeed in the role
The ability to solve complex problems, make decisions, and use sound reasoning are among the most critical competencies needed by today’s workers. Cognitive ability assessments are robust tools that reveal an individual’s reasoning, logic, and ability to work with information and can accurately predict potential for success.
SHL’s cognitive ability assessments comprise multiple-choice items that measure various mental abilities, such as verbal and numerical ability, reasoning ability, and reading comprehension. Some cognitive ability assessments measure distinct abilities (e.g., verbal, numerical), while others measure a combination of different abilities to provide a measure of general mental ability.
