Personal Pitch

When I founded AssessFirst, my goal was to ensure that everyone could have the same opportunity as me: to do a job in which they have the opportunity to be themselves. It’s my belief that everyone who does a job in which they can utilise their personal qualities can have a powerful impact, while also being the happiest person in the world. When you think about it, you spend a huge amount of time at work, so why not be happy there, right? Today, I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished with AssessFirst. More than 10,000 people already have an account with our solution. This means that 10,000 people are running between dozens and thousands of assessments every year. All of these people know the impact that personality can have on an individual’s success and growth in the workplace.
