Personal profiles and tests

40% of all recruitments without test profiles fail

40 % of all recruitments with test profiles are no longer in the company after 12 months, says research from the University of Southern Denmark.

In a world of small economic margins, the pressure on leaders are still increasing in taking right decisions. Different kinds of tests help managers and talents to increase self-awareness, so they take advantage of their potential and thus deliver the results that the organisation and not least they themselves expect.

The different profiles give the involved parties an informed basis on which to make the decisions. For that reason, HowToWin has one of the broadest palette of tests for a wide range of areas.
