Cognitive Abilities Assessments

Cognitive ability is another term for intelligence, problem solving capacity or reasoning ability. Technically, cognitive ability refers to the ability to process information, encompassing its acquisition, organisation, retention, and application.

People who score well on cognitive ability tests use their high-level information processing skills to solve job related problems more effectively, and to learn the job more quickly. As a result, people with strong scores on cognitive ability tests tend to perform better on the job and in training. Research clearly shows that cognitive ability is one of the strongest predictors of subsequent job performance.

Cognitive ability becomes more important as a predictor of job performance as the complexity of the job increases. Cognitive ability is especially important in jobs that require people to process large amounts of information, such as complex technical jobs and managerial roles. Cognitive ability is also very important in jobs that involve a great deal of training, such as apprentice and graduate roles.

Emotional Intelligence Assessments

Distinct from personality, emotional intelligence can be considered as an employee’s ability to recognise emotions in others, manage their own emotions, understand the impact their emotions have on others, and to use emotions effectively when making decisions.

The benefits of emotionally intelligent employees have been demonstrated to include:

  • Greater employee well-being, life satisfaction, and job performance

  • A positive relationship with transformational leadership and higher employee engagement

  • Increased job satisfaction and organisational commitment

  • Increased sales performance by higher EI employees

With clear benefits from having an emotionally intelligent workplace CMPI employs a range of solutions and interventions to help you get there.

Safety Assessments

Contemporary psychological research indicates that an individual’s likelihood of injuring themselves or causing an incident in the workplace is highly correlated with their attitude towards risk taking, personal responsibility for safety, stress management, drugs and violence.

Safety psychometric assessments are predominantly used for two main purposes, selection and development. When used for selection, safety assessments are a time and cost effective method for identifying individuals who are significantly more at risk to be injured or involved in an incident while at work.

Tools we use

  • Revelian Work Safety Assessment (RWSA)

  • Situational Safety Awareness Inventory (SSAI)
