Candidates´ experiences of our personnel assessments

“I have previously participated in personnel assessment at another personnel assessment company. IKIGAI Assessments´ personnel assessment process differed positively from its competitor: personnel assessment proceeded smoothly and efficiently. Each part of the personnel assessment was implemented with high quality. I recognized myself well from the assessment report and going through the results with the psychologist consultant in the sparring discussion helped me to understand myself more. Overall, IKIGAI´s personnel assessment was a positive experience, even though I was not selected for the job position I applied for.”

“In many recruitment processes, the candidate may feel that he or she is being scrutinized, and the situation may feel oppressive. I didn’t have that feeling in the IKIGAI´s personnel assessment. On the contrary, I felt that I was encountered equally with respect. The assessment was an interesting experience.”

“The personnel assessment managed to create a positive and safe atmosphere, where I didn´t feel scrutinized or judged. I think that this allowed me to be able to be myself in the assessment situation and reflect on myself openly. For the most part, I recognized myself from the assessment report, but few points got me thinking. However, the sparring discussion helped me to understand these points as well. “

“Personnel assessment was a good experience even though I was not selected for the job position. I recognized myself well from the personnel assessment report. In fact, the report was empowering, and I have already read it through several times. I feel privileged that so much time has been spent on reflecting on me and supporting my development.”
