WHAT IS CQ?
The Cognitive Quotient (CQ) is designed to help employers make stronger hiring decisions, and avoid high-turnover rates and workplace incidents.
The CQ evaluates a participant’s ability to solve work-related problems using the following:
Once completed, a report is automatically generated that contains insight into candidate’s strengths, feedback on areas for development, training tips and suggested interview questions.
BENEFITS OF USING THE CQ
With CQ integrated into your hiring and training operations you can:
- Identify the unique training needs of potential hires and current employees
- Match an individual’s abilities to relevant job tasks
- Speed up the interview process with personalized interview questions
HOW IT WORKS
The assessment can be taken online anywhere participants have internet access (eg. at home, at work, on client premises) on either a computer or mobile device via a web browser.
The assessment takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete but there is no time limit. Participants are instructed to answer assessment questions by following their first impression rather than thinking too much about how to answer.
Responses are automatically processed by TalentClick and a PDF report is generated then emailed to specified parties within 1 hour of survey completion. Reports can also be accessed by logging into our TalentClick assessment portal, using your own unique username and password.
The assessment is available in multiple languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Ukrainian, Russian, Polish, Chinese, Punjabi, Tagalog, and more currently in development.
