Assessments as Unique As You

Finding candidates who are a match for the role AND your corporate culture can be challenging. Culture misses can often result in poor performance and higher turnover.

At HighMatch, every client relationship starts with our Workplace Psychologists understanding your challenges, goals, and the unique elements of your roles & culture.

We then create a personalized cultural fit assessment, built to only measure candidates against the qualities that matter most in your company culture using your preferred language.

Cutltural assessment Reports

HighMatch reports are highly visual, with intuitive dashboards that help you quickly see whether a candidate is a culture fit based on their scores on specific competencies.

Those include:

  • Single Score: a single roll-up performance score
  • Custom Ranges: flexible, client-defined score ranges
  • Topic Scores: tailored topic scores for key sections
  • Answers Tab: easily review answers to questions
  • Action Tabs: email or call applicants with one click
  • Interview Guides: tailored question prompts
  • Development Tips: recommendations for improvement

With HighMatch, recruiters can automatically deploy assessments and share score data with their ATS and Conversational AI to enable automated workflows.

How it works

To measure culture fit, our team of workplace psychologists partner with clients using either an Organizational Analysis or a Benchmarking Study.

The output of this research are company culture profiles that outline what levels of each value and trait, like teamwork, influence success in a role and in your organization.

Those company culture profiles can then be used to refine our Screen, Assess, Interview and Develop solutions to look for candidates and employees that are a fit.
