SKILLSY
Our mission
is value-based matching
for employees and companies
value-based hiring and assessment


Our clients receive a candidate's value profile, predictive behavior, and an adaptation strategy based on proven and measurable data.
We reveal a potential candidate's values and needs based on their answers to our clinically validated tests, quizzes and situational tasks.
Our service interprets the data and gives HR manager a report detailing which role in the company, types of motivation, type of communication, development model and management style are suitable for each particular employee.
Our service gives recommendations on how to correctly build an adaptation strategy for the first three months of an employee in the company.
We offer companies the ability to customize tests, questionnaires, and situational tasks to be relevant to their particular needs.

Why it's important

Around one in five employees (22%) have left a job during or at the end of their probationary period. The role ‘not being as expected’ was the most common reason given for quitting, cited by 43% of respondents. This was followed by having found a better role (23%), not liking the company’s culture (13%) and not liking the boss (8%).
People Management
Actively disengaged employees cause U.S. companies between $450 – $550 billion in lost productivity per year.
Gallup
In April of 2021, 4 million employees left their organizations voluntarily. And that rate has remained elevated with another 3.9 million employees leaving voluntarily in June of 2021. This mass exodus has created a surplus of open jobs that need to be filled and has left organizational leaders scrambling to retain their best and difficult-to-replace employees.
Quantum 2021 Turnover Trends
Replacing exiting workers costs one-half to two times the employee's annual salary. Assuming an average salary of $50,000 that replacement cost translates to between $25,000 and $100,000 per employee.
Quantum 2021 Turnover Trends
Just 23% of U.S. employees strongly agree that they can apply their organization’s values to their work every day.

This document includes the key points to be paid attention to and ways to solve possible difficult situations, to prevent burnout and to maintain mental health.

Hiring relevant employees for the long term
Low employee turnover
High employees engagement
Creating a healthy psychological environment and value-based communications
Reducing employer costs associated with the leaving of talented employees
Our goal is to help companies to know more about employees and make data-driven hiring decisions without bias or stigmatization.
It doesn't matter to us how big and successful your company is.
We know that success often begins with a few well-matched employees.
We are ready to offer our solution for any number of your candidates.
Scientific background

In our solution, we use integrative psychology approaches and modern views of behavioral science.
We use a combination of well-known clinically validated approaches for assessing and predicting behavior (C. Graves's spiral dynamics, behavioral tests) and Skillsy's proprietary technology (tests and case study simulators).
Our tests are designed with the neurobiology of perception, attention, and associative responses in mind.
They are presented as projective illustrated situational tasks with deep immersion.
