Identify the most suitable candidate

Using personnel assessment in recruitments will help you to identify the most suitable candidate among the final candidates. Multi-method psychological personnel assessment has been established as the most reliable way to predict person’s performance in work.

The candidate’s fit for the position is assessed from the perspective of both the applied position and the organizational culture – we reflect the candidate’s strengths and motivational factors in relation to the applied position and organizational culture.

Good fit between the candidate and the position applied is reflected on employee well-being and productivity, contributing to the organization’s success.

Humane and respectful approach

The way we conduct personnel assessments and coachings is humane: in our work we take concern not only for of our client companies business legalities, but also for individual needs, natural tendencies, and factors of occupational well-being. We acknowledge that the well-being of a work community also enhances productivity. In our work, we encounter candidates or coaching individuals humanely and individualistically.
Humane approach in personnel assessment



“We have used Ikigai’s services to support our hiring decisions in several of our key recruitments. The in-depth information that the personnel assessments provide about person’s strengths and motivations has been really valuable for us. Therefore, we have used the personnel assessment results as one of the selection criteria. Also, the results of personnel assessment have corresponded well to what the person has turned out to be at work and in the work community – Inka and Elina are professionals and competent in their work. Collaboration with Ikigai has been flexible, straightforward and efficient.”

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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“There was a positive and safe atmosphere in the personnel assessment, where I didn’t feel scrutinized or judged. I think that 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 those points as well. “
