JVR was able to obtain data on the complexity, median salaries, tenure, and appointments per year on jobs in addition to the potential and performance data collected at a small- to medium enterprise. Based on predictive validities from Cognify and the Basic Traits Inventory, we calculated that Organisation X could save R 1 481 754,82 over eight years for a high-complexity job if selection decisions are based on Cognify and the BTI (see Case Study). The amount is based on the premise that one high-performing applicant instead of one low-performing applicant is selected per year.
Cognify is a game-based assessment of cognitive ability that assesses specific abilities such as Fluid reasoning (Gf), Visual-spatial processing (Gv), Quantitative knowledge (Gq), Comprehension-knowledge (Gc), Reading and writing (Grw), and Processing speed (Gs). Cognify is reported to be a more engaging and enjoyable format when compared to traditional non-game-based assessments (see video for quick overview). Professors Richard Landers’ presentation at an interdisciplinary workshop, highlights his findings based on independent research conducted with Cognify. Professor Richard Landers is a world-renowned expert in gamification at Minnesota University.
