Predictive Assessments

Leverage solid science for better results

State-of-the-Art Selection System

GrowthPlay’s Chally Assessment is based on extensive and ongoing research. We have completed over 400 validation studies and continue to leverage state-of-the-science techniques for new clients to accurately predict on-the-job performance. The assessment has been completed by more than 1 million respondents and our global, normative database includes results for over 500,000 incumbents and candidates in sales, management, and customer-facing positions.

Beyond Describing to Predicting

We focus on predicting success on the job rather than describing broad traits like “extroversion.” We have researched and developed scales that measure the specific skills and behaviors needed to be successful on the job. It may be interesting to know a candidate’s energy level, for example, but it is critical to know that the sales candidate can successfully prospect, resolve objections, and close.

This approach has led to identifying specific skill requirements for different positions. The skill sets required for an Account Manager, for instance, are different from those needed by someone in Outbound Inside Sales, even though they are both sales positions. This approach is true for sales, management, and numerous service delivery positions.
