We started IKIGAI Assessments from our willingness to combine the quality of traditional personnel assessments with agile and candidate oriented approach.
Where did it all started?
We, the founders of IKIGAI, met while working as psychologist consultants in large recruitment agencies. We often found ourselves wondering how personnel assessments and recruitments could be carried out by combining scientific and ethical approach from our psychologist background with the needs of contemporary work. We started our company from this vision – from our willingness to carry out recruitments and personnel assessments in a way that combines in-depth and quality approach and agile, candidate oriented implementation.
Ikigai refers to the fit between individual and his or her environment. People thrive at best in a job and organizational culture that fits their strengths and motivational factors. Instead of assessing the candidate focusing only on the things that are relevant from the employer’s point of view, we emphasize in our recruitments the fit between the candidate´s characteristics and the applied position.
Based on the feedback we have received, we have succeeded in our aim to offer added value both to the recruiting companies and to candidates. Both our clients and candidates have been very satisfied with our services! Our clients have thanked us particularly for the prompt service, thoroughness and the added value that we have given to support their recruitment decisions. Our candidates, on the other hand, have been pleased with the flexible options of participating in the assessment and recruitments and the opportunities to learn more about themselves.
We use modern technologies and psychological test methods that allow us to conduct personnel assessment flexibly and reliably, without the demanding presence of a full day.
We are specialized in assessing competencies that predict success in modern work cultures.
Change in modern working life is continuous and job roles need to be flexible with change. In addition to assessing the current situation, we also focus strongly on assessing development potential.
We know that in most fields, the job market is candidate driven. This is why we focus on providing rewarding and reciprocal assessment experience for the candidate.
Changing a job is also a big decision for the candidate. We want to provide added value for them by ensuring that the role and work culture match his or her motivational factors.
We will not leave candidates alone with the evaluation results. Each of our personnel assessments includes a psychological sparring conversation with the candidate.
Each assessment is completed with a meticulous and careful work by our trained and experienced professionals. In our assessments, we consider all of the core competencies that predict job performance and success in a variety of positions.
We use evidence-based assessment methods and ensure reliability of our conclusions by assessing each competence using multiple methods.
All of our assessments are conducted by licenced psychologists who hold certificates in psychological personnel assessment.
