We at Central Test have always been guided by our philosophy of a human-centric approach; and the unprecedented challenges of 2020 were mainly centered around human resources management. Therefore, guided by our Research and Innovation team, we adapted our existing tests and tools, and added new solutions to help companies recalibrate their HR processes to match the many tough shifts in work and performance.

Here is a feature of our 5 most-used assessments tools from 2020.

Employee motivation and engagement has been a recognised HR challenge for decades. But the current environment of mandatory remote-working, psychosocial risks to employee wellbeing, and the overall reduction in-person interaction has forced businesses and HR managers to renew their understanding of  motivation, engagement and satisfaction of their employees.

The MOTIVATION+ is an assessment specially designed to help understand what are the “drivers'' that propel a person's energy at work and contribute to their engagement. The test is available in two versions: MOTIVATION evaluating the 15 factors of motivation, and MOTIVATION+ also indicating the degree of satisfaction on each factor evaluated.

Emotional Intelligence is essential for an individual to integrate and collaborate with others in order to perform well in their job role. The EMOTION 2 assessment provides a nuanced picture of emotional and social capabilities of an individual. Based on Daniel Goleman’s theory, the test measures 15 factors governing emotional intelligence, EMOTION 2 also highlights some unique dimensions adjusted to the current work environment such as dealing with diversity and motivating others.

3. Professional Profile 2

Professional Profile 2 is a personality assessment that analyses the traits that influence an individual's behaviour and performance at work. It measures 14 sets of opposing dimensions resulting in an analysis of 28 aspects of personality.
