New generation cognitive ability assessment to predict work success

Time and time again, research has proven that cognitive ability is consistently one of the strongest predictors of work success. But traditional ways of measuring cognitive ability in candidates have big downsides: time-consuming tests, suboptimal candidate experience and negative impacts on minority groups. We’ve changed all this with our new generation of ability tests: Mindgage.

Why use the latest cognitive ability tests 

  • Make objective hiring decisions: Generate concrete data for critical talent decisions.
  • Engage candidates with innovation: Show your candidates you are forward-thinking with our next-generation tests.
  • Use modular assessment for clever hiring: Combine Mindgage modules with other personality or behavioural modules for powerful all-in-one assessment.
  • Predict future growth: Cognitive ability is a strong indicator of growth potential.
