The Science

We solve the problem of fit

Every company has a unique culture. Every team in every company has a unique culture. And every role in each team is unique too. Off-the-shelf assessments don’t address this problem, we do.

Whether it’s fit to a role, to a company, a team or a manager, our unique experience in psychometrics, employer branding and technology enables our clients to ensure all hires have the capability, commitment and cultural alignment to excel in any role.

What We Measure

ThriveMap provides predictive assessment tools that help HR and Recruitment teams save time and reduce employee turnover. 

We believe that all good hires need the “Three Cs”: 

Capability – They can do the job
Commitment – They really want to do the job
Culture Fit – They will thrive in the environment

Rather than prescribing an off-the-shelf assessment we work with you to co-create assessments tailored to your needs. Whether that’s measuring fit to your organisation’s culture and values or whether we’re looking at core skills or role-specific capabilities.

Why we don’t use personality tests

We believe the best companies are full of different people and personalities. 

Rather than using personality measures, we create assessments that measure behaviour in real-life scenarios that occur in the workplace. We take research out of the lab and apply it to the unique aspects of your company and culture.

Our Chief Science Officer explains: “When investigating human behaviour scientifically, we have to take these behaviours out of the real world and into the lab.

When looking for practical solutions to human challenges, such as recruitment and workplace performance, it’s important to stay focused on the real life behaviour that we observe, and use science to supplement our understanding.

It’s important to consider the distinction between behaviour observed in the lab and behaviour observed in real life, and not sacrifice our understanding of one for the other.”

Measuring Fit

We use a substantial amount of resources when recruiting new employees so it is crucial to ensure that new hires will align with the environment they are placed into.

Person–Environment fit is the compatibility between people and their working environment. We look at fit across 4 levels:

Organisation fit (PO fit)
Team fit (PG fit)
Manager fit (PS fit)
Job fit (PJ fit)

Strong Person–Environment fit leads to positive outcomes, such as increased satisfaction, performance, and overall employee well-being.

"Recent advances in fit theory have recognized that the most rewarding experiences are those in which multiple types of fit exist simultaneously. That has led to conceptual work exploring PE (Person-Environment) fit as a multidimensional construct"

"We believe assessments should communicate what the job's really like, test real skills related to the role, and provide candidates with a quick, easy, and enjoyable experience"
