    The ROI of cognitive ability
 featured image

JVR was able to obtain data on the complexity, median salaries, tenure, and appointments per year on jobs in addition to the potential and performance data collected at a small- to medium enterprise.  Based on predictive validities from Cognify and the Basic Traits Inventory, we calculated that Organisation X could save R 1 481 754,82 over eight years for a high-complexity job if selection decisions are based on Cognify and the BTI (see Case Study).  The amount is based on the premise that one high-performing applicant instead of one low-performing applicant is selected per year.


Cognify is a game-based assessment of cognitive ability that assesses specific abilities such as Fluid reasoning (Gf), Visual-spatial processing (Gv), Quantitative knowledge (Gq), Comprehension-knowledge (Gc), Reading and writing (Grw), and Processing speed (Gs).  Cognify is reported to be a more engaging and enjoyable format when compared to traditional non-game-based assessments (see video for quick overview).  Professors Richard Landers’ presentation at an interdisciplinary workshop, highlights his findings based on independent research conducted with Cognify.  Professor Richard Landers is a world-renowned expert in gamification at Minnesota University.
