Cognitive and behavioral assessment, powered by science.

Choose the right people for your business, more quickly and with less guesswork.

What data do we collect in the assessment process?

GROW360 collects, analyzes and synthesizes three types of datasets: psychometric data (Big 5 personality traits), behavioral data (360-degree feedback), and hard skills.


Bias-free algorithms and assessment methodology ensures a clean, reliable set of data, free of intrinsic human bias or faking responses.

What is personality?

GROW360's psychometric assessment defines candidate personalities based on the Big 5 personality traits model (also known as the Five-Factor Model). IGS has developed a unique, patented method to assess the Big 5 personality traits using a scientific, bias-free methodology: the Implicit Association Test.

Big 5 Five-Factor Model (OCEAN)

  • Openness to Experience - Cautiousness
  • Conscientiousness - Spontaneous
  • Extraversion - Introversion
  • Agreeableness
  • Neuroticism - Confidence
Depending on their latent personality characteristics, individuals tend to exhibit differing levels of psychometric behavior according to the situation.

What is a competency?

A "competency" is a cluster of related abilities, commitments, knowledge and skills that enable a person, team or organization to act effectively in a job or situation. GROW360 collects self assessment data and peer assessment data to calculate an objective score on a candidate's competency strengths across four fundamental competency domains: cognitive, intrapersonal, interpersonal and community domains.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the difference between GROW360 and competitor services?

There are two strengths to adopt GROW 360.

① It is impossible to "cheat" the test. IAT checks the unconscious bias of the candidate, so it is difficult to intentionally manipulate the reply. Moreover, the 360 degree evaluation of GROW also evaluates quality of the assessor. If an evaluator consistently assesses candidates favorably or negatively in an extreme way, corrections such as lowering the weight of evaluation attached are made.

② Unlike other assessment technologies, our artificial intelligence technology and machine learning algorithms reach high levels of precision with consistent usage. By adopting GROW360, we will construct a highly accurate judgment model by machine learning from the accumulated candidate data. Furthermore, by continuing to capture new data, the accuracy of judgment will continue to improve. This unique advantage is a feature not found in traditional paper-based methods nor in other HR tech services.

Even without knowledge of data analysis, can you use it?
You do not have to be an expert or have a strong background in data analysis to execute our technology. GROW360 will automatically judge the assessment results received for recruitment candidates. Our sales and data consultants also work with you to make sure you can glean the most insights from collected data.
How much time and effort is required to recruit candidates using GROW360?
The examination takes about 45 minutes, but since it is possible to do it from a smartphone or tablet, candidates can select a convenient time and place that works best for them.
