Potential Analysis

How quickly a new employee learns new procedures and how to react to change can make the difference between success and failure. The GIA test identifies precisely how and at what rate a person learns. In addition to the usual references letters, this test is a good tool for identifying skills and potential.

 

Developing high performers and ensuring that they are continuously challenged and stimulated is the secret of success in many companies. The GIA test will help you figure out which of your talents is most responsive to training, how open they really are to change and how to give them suitable challenges.

The GIA test answers questions such as

Can this person think for themselves?

How adaptable is this person?

Can he/she cope with the mental demands of the job?
Is the person driven to succeed?
Can they solve problems well?
How successful will training activities be for this person?
Is this person sufficiently challenged?

Can this person implement change in the company?
