I-o Psychology services


An Executive Assessment by HighMatch’s I-O Psychology team provides supportive insight for high-stakes hiring situations where candidate competency is crucial.

What is an Executive Assessment?

A HighMatch Executive Assessment evaluates a prospective candidate by interviewing them to assess their compatibility in your senior-level role.

Our workplace psychologists then synthesize the data gathered from the candidate’s answers and compare it to the competency model defined by your organization.

The final results are presented in a comprehensive summary that outlines the candidate’s strengths, weaknesses, and likelihood of success in the position.

Sample Reports

HighMatch Executive Assessments provide detailed insights on candidates ranging from first-line people managers all the way up to C-suite level positions.

Our manager-level report provides a comprehensive analysis of a manager candidate’s potential. Meanwhile, our executive-level report takes a deep look into the areas essential for top executive talent.

Choose one of the options below to explore the two different types of reports we have available.

optimizing your workplace

An Executive Assessment not only identifies whether a candidate will thrive in a high-stakes position, but also suggests strategies for nurturing the candidate’s weaker areas to promote their future success.

These insights will improve overall retention rates and reduce turnover, as the candidate is being recruited into a role they are qualified for where their innate talents shine.

Wayne Homes uses HighMatch to Identify Qualified Applicants

Hear from Michael Luckie-Ewing, former VP of People and Culture at Wayne Homes, a custom home builder serving 5 states for over 40 years.

Michael and his team used HighMatch to better filter applicants for the qualities and skills that contribute to success across every role in their organization.

How It Works

Our I-O psychologists host a focus group with your hiring team to outline the competencies needed in the position, and to understand your organization’s history, culture, and needs. 

After that, we take over. The candidate is invited to complete a psychometric assessment online, then our workplace psychologists conduct the interview over a video conference.

The final deliverable is a detailed analysis tailored to the level of the role. It also includes a list of strategies for coaching the candidate in any areas that need improvement.

Our psychologists’ expertise in evaluating candidates for their competencies is invaluable in high-stakes situations where finding an experienced, qualified candidate is imperative.

The final report is designed to supplement your hiring manager’s own interview with advice from professionals.
