Solutions for:

Executive Positions

HighMatch’s personalized executive assessments identify candidates that align with your unique roles and culture and have the leadership qualities required for success.

personalized executive assessments

Most vendors offering executive assessments don’t also support lower-level roles, leaving you having to manage two separate vendor relationships.

They also only measure candidate’s fit for leadership, not whether a candidate is a fit for your unique roles and culture.


Our Workplace Psychologists partner with your team to understand the unique needs of your roles while identifying the specific criteria executive candidates need to succeed.

We build a personalized assessment solution that identifies the best candidates for your unique roles and culture.

Assessment Types

HighMatch measures select innate traits and abilities as well as hard skills, knowledge and judgement using a battery of questions validated by our team of workplace psychologists. For hourly workers, those questions typically fall into six core capabilities:


Measures candidate’s motivators, communication style and work ethic

Cognitive Aptitude

Measures critical thinking, spatial reasoning and problem-solving ability

Hard Skills

Measures a candidate’s ability to perform role-critical tasks


Measure a candidate’s knowledge of job-critical skills and experience

situational Judgement

Understand how a candidate will likely react to on-the-job scenarios

Culture fit

Understand how candidates align with your cultural values.

How it works
