About Harrison Assessments™ Technology


Harrison Assessments™ provides the most powerful set of solutions for the entire talent life cycle with ONE ASSESSMENT that predictively provides solutions in the three critical talent management areas of recruiting, coaching & development, and career & succession planning; all supported with useful decision analytics.

The Assessment

The Harrison Assessment is an exceptional, highly reliable and validated tool for starting, changing, or developing your career.  The online assessment, which takes less than 30 minutes to complete, measures 175 factors including your task preferences, motivations, work environment preferences, interests, and interpersonal preferences.  The data collected is used to generate a multitude of reports that are valuable to career planning and professional development.

Harrison Assessments™ has been used for over 24 years worldwide and is currently available in 29 languages.

HA-Talent-SolutionsThe Theories

There are two central theories that are integrated into the Harrison system.

The Enjoyment-Performance Theory affirms that we tend to engage in activities that bring us enjoyment and avoid activities that bring us displeasure. Individuals have a tendency to do things more frequently when we enjoy them and as a result we tend to get better at them as well. If our performance improves so will our desire to engage in these activities.  Therefore, performance and enjoyment are related; performance is closely linked to the level of interest and enjoyment of an activity.

The Paradox Theory truly differentiates the Harrison Assessment™ from all of the assessment tools. According to this theory, an individual can possess and demonstrate seemingly contradictory traits simultaneously. By measuring 12 universal paradoxes, which take the form as gentle (passive) and dynamic (aggressive) traits, we can describe various levels of balance and imbalance enabling us to more accurately predict behavior.

The Reliability & Validity

Using our advanced cross-referencing technologies that make over 8,000 comparisons, it provides the equivalent amount of information of 2,700 multiple choice questions. Our SmartQuestionnaire™ prevents deception because it contains only positive statements that are ranked according to what the individual enjoys the most. Our built-in lie prevention system automatically detects even the slightest attempt to manipulate the results.
