The firm’s process overall works to support long-term sustainability and growth for its clients’ industries.

“SHL continues to find better ways to measure the characteristics in people that provide insight into someone’s likelihood for success at a given role or level. Our team is committed to keeping sound science and psychometric rigor at the heart of everything we do while continuing to develop world-class technology and tools,” said Jason Burgamy, Managing Director, Americas. “Our psychometric catalogue includes personality assessments, skills & knowledge tests, cognitive ability, 360’s, as well as video interviews, virtual assessment centers, and coding simulations.
