  • About Harrison Assessments
      Harrison Assessments (HA) is leading the Talent Management and Online Assessment industry with cutting edge technologies used by global companies worldwide for practical assistance with recruitment, talent development and career development. Harrison Assessments is more than just a standard psychometric tool because it assesses all factors relating to job success. In doing so, it focuses on job eligibility factors (qualifications, experience etc) as well as job suitability factors (interests, work preferences etc), thus emphasising on the relationship between job satisfaction and job success. The focus on behaviour competencies and job suitability factors enables employers to hire, retain and develop top performance as well as generate greater work satisfaction. It has been found that employees who enjoy 75% or more of their daily activities are 3 times more likely to succeed and stay longer than employees who do not. Thus, it is a complete job suitability assessment that measures interests, work values, task preferences, motivations, attitudes and other issues related to work satisfaction. It was developed from the ground up to predict job success and thus focuses on mission critical abilities and core competencies such as communications, decision making, creativity, interpersonal skills, leadership and much more. Dan Harrison Dan Harrison, Ph.D., is the developer and CEO of Harrison Assessments' and originator of ParadoxTechnology™ as used in Harrison Assessments. His diverse background and over 30 years of experience in Mathematics, Personality Theory, Counselling Psychology, Human Potential Psychology, and Organizational Psychology has enabled him to make a unique and exceptional contribution to assessment methodology. In 1990 he founded Harrison Assessments with a vision of helping companies optimize their human capital by enhancing their deep understanding of human resources and psychology. Dr Harrisons' ongoing world-wide travel gives him direct involvement with the needs of Harrison Assessments' clients and exposes him to the appropriate practical application in a wide variety of cultures.   Grounding Theories Based on 20 years of performance research, there are two underlying theories that are integrated in the Harrison Assessment methodology:
    • Enjoyment Performance Theory – based on the fundamental aspects of behavioural theory, Enjoyment-Performance Theory states that an individual will perform more effectively in a job if that individual enjoys the types of tasks that are required by that job, has interests that relate to the position, and the work environment conditions corresponds with that individual’s work environment preferences. In summary, job satisfaction is a significant indicator of a higher level of performance and job success.
    • Paradox Theory – incorporates the idea that an individual can possess and demonstrate seemingly contradictory traits simultaneously and by understanding the relationship between two opposing traits, the potential for stress responses can be measured. Besides offering individuals an insight into aspects of themselves of which they may be only partially aware, it provides a guideline for balancing and developing oneself.
  • What’s on Offer?
    • Enjoyment Performance Methodology – Helps determine how satisfied an employee is within his or her current role by revealing which responsibilities provide the greatest personal motivation and job satisfaction. This information provides valuable insight into how job functions can be re-engineered to better suit the individuals and how to create effective succession planning.
    • Job Success Formula - By selecting the appropriate Job Success Formula you can receive a complete analysis of an employee's strengths and weaknesses in relationship to job performance. It also generates an employee development plan that guides the employee to develop the behaviors that will lead to success for a particular job.
    • Smart Questionnaire -. has multiple layers of technological and psychological mechanisms that detect and prevent deception.
