We'll be discussing our latest webinar (Fact-Checking Leadership Assessments: Why Results Sometimes Don't Match the Reality) in a bit more depth in these two blog posts. You can watch the webinar from Martin Lanik, CEO, and Michelle Brown, COO, below.

So, can you trust leadership assessments? What makes them more or less trustworthy than other types of assessments? Should you trust a report from an assessment more than someone who personally knows an individual? These are all common questions Pinsight receives from prospective clients and partners, and a part of what we tackled in our latest webinar.

Traditional in-person assessments are costly and require a large investment of time (traveling, set-up, etc.). Pinsight's assessments take 1-3 hours, can be done anywhere in the world (at any time), and are customized to look for the skills relevant to the individual's prospective job or position. Our virtual assessment center helps organizations develop a trusted and scalable approach to their hiring, development, and succession talent practices.
Why Leadership Assessments?
  • Leadership assessments are more reliable than other assessment types. The rate-of-error for the Pinsight leadership assessments is 50-63% lower than data coming from other assessments (Pinsight Tech Manual).
  • Other forms of assessment have the potential for bias. As discussed in our latest research, managers are 3x more likely to identify men than women for leadership potential and 2x as likely to identify white men over black men.
  • Individuals who perform well on the Pinsight assessment are more engaged, meet their targets more regularly, and remain with the company longer with greater frequency than other assessment types.
