The Achiever Assessment

Management, supervisory and administrative roles

The Achiever Assessment

The Achiever is an online employment assessment used to evaluate candidates in professional, managerial and administrative roles. The assessment combines mental aptitude, personality traits and validity scoring in one instrument, providing an objective analysis of an individual’s abilities in a given role.

The Achiever takes less than an hour to complete and includes customized report features. Results are available in one business day.

The Achiever Assessment evaluates six mental aptitudes and ten personality dimensions. It is then possible to compare results with candidates who have proven successful in a specific job category. The reports can be used in the selection process, during training, to increase productivity and understand employee job satisfaction. The assessment provides insightful and unbiased data for important employment decisions.

Why Use The Achiever?

Analyzing a person’s mental aptitudes and personality traits is critical if an employer is to fully evaluate the potential of an individual. While research has shown a consistent relationship between occupation or income level and general intelligence, the results of intelligence tests alone do not predict success or failure in an occupation with a great deal of accuracy.

Many other factors contribute to occupational success other than intelligence. Personality assessments, when validated properly, have been shown to effectively predict employment success. However, limiting assessments to an individual’s personality ignores the impact mental aptitudes have on employment success. Thus, measurement for both mental aptitudes and personality traits are needed, and The Achiever provides both in one instrument.

“I would highly recommend The Achiever as a reliable and well-rounded tool to include in your candidate selection process. It provides helpful insights into the intellectual and behavioral aptitude of a candidate and to ensure you hire the right candidate for the right position every time.”
