IKIGAI Assessments was originated from the desire to combine the quality of traditional personnel assessments with modern and candidate oriented implementation.
Where did it all started?
We Co-Founders of IKIGAI met while working as psychologist consultants in one of the largest company in the field of personnel assessments. We often found ourselves reflecting on how we would implement personnel assessments if we could decide the way of implementation from beginning to the end. IKIGAI Assessments was originated from this reflection to combine the quality of traditional personnel assessments with modern and candidate oriented implementation.
Our name comes from a Japanese IKIGAI-philosophy. According to the philosophy, people are at their best when their strengths and motivation factors meet the requirements of their work. At IKIGAI Assessments, we offer psychological assessments that focus on assessing the fit between the candidate and the position.
According to the feedback we add value not only for to the recruiting companies but also for candidates – both our customers and candidates have been very satisfied with our personnel assessments.
Our customers have particularly thanked us for the rapid service, flexibility and the valuable information we offer to support their recruitment decisions. Our candidates, on the other hand, have been pleased with the flexible implementation of assessment and that they have been able 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.
