Our Drives test reveals the type of environment the candidate thrives in and ensures it’s closely matched to yours.

  • What is the Drives test?

    Our Drives test reveals the type of workplace environments in which candidates will thrive, be motivated and perform well. They help you understand what will motivate your candidate to work best, and most importantly, ensure that those motivations are in line with your own company’s.

  • Why do employers use the Drives test?

    Drives tests are a useful tool to help ensure candidates are a strong culture fit. Deciphering if an individual is well suited to a business environment can be difficult, but our Drives test helps quantify this often subjective process and help you make data-driven decisions.

  • What is the Drives test format?

    Candidates are given 20 points to distribute between specific motivators. These range from innovation, purpose, money to responsibility.

    Candidates have five minutes to complete this scoring. This helps prevent overthinking, and leads to candidates entering genuine responses.
