What are "soft skills" - often translated as "behavioural competencies"?
Behavioral skills are generic skills related to attitudes, behaviors and personality traits:
- Personal attributes, specific to the individual
- Interpersonal skills, social and emotional intelligence
- Intellectual skills.
Unlike technical skills, behavioral skills are applicable in a variety of contexts. They contribute to efficiency and professional success.
Today, soft skills are becoming more and more important. Indeed, beyond the diploma and the acquired knowledge, organizations are looking for people able to :
- adapt to a constantly changing environment,
- to acquire new skills throughout their life,
- and interact effectively with multiple stakeholders.
Goshaba allows you to determine the soft skills of your talent by assessing their cognitive skills.
Goshaba uses experimental protocols to measure these skills in an accurate and objective manner. These protocols are recognized by the scientific community in cognitive sciences. We have adapted them into games for use in our assessment courses.
What skills can be assessed with Goshaba?
Goshaba allows you to assess the cognitive skills of your talents:
What is the scientific validity of the Goshaba assessments?
Goshaba cognitive games are built according to a rigorous methodology guaranteeing their scientific validity.
To design them, our R&D team relies on fundamental research in cognitive sciences and neurosciences. Our cognitive games are derived from experimental protocols from the scientific literature, which we have adapted to optimize the candidate experience (duration, ux, etc.).
In this process, they are subjected to several tests in order to verify that they remain scientifically valid and reliable. More specifically, a series of descriptive statistical analyses are performed to ensure that our games generate a standard behavior (normal distribution), that they have a satisfactory degree of precision, and that our solution is objective and does not create biases.
What is the difference between Goshaba and existing personality tests on the market?
Traditional psychological tests are based on declarative and therefore biased responses from candidates.
These tests mainly aim to identify personality traits, which is not very representative of the real potential of each individual.
In contrast, the Goshaba solution evaluates the cognitive skills of talents in an objective way, through cognitive games. This method allows us to accurately measure the skills that are most critical to success in the workplace.
More and more solutions are showcasing cognitive sciences. Why Goshaba?
The Goshaba solution is based on fundamental research in cognitive sciences.
This reference to science is part of our DNA, because Goshaba’s co-founder and co-director, Camille Morvan, is a world-class specialist in cognitive sciences. After a PhD in neuroscience, Camille continued her research at Harvard, where she also taught cognitive sciences.
Cognitive sciences, on which our R&D team relies, guarantee the reliability of our evaluation methods.
More and more solutions offer video games. Why Goshaba?
Goshaba was co-founded by two video games experts, Djamil Kemal and Minh Phan, who have in their previous experiences created and developed game brands with revenues exceeding $100 million.
Today, Goshaba evaluations are proposed in a gamified format, which allows for better-quality data to be collected, as the candidate gets caught up in the game and does not feel judged.
Is the Goshaba solution integrated with ATS?
Yes, the Goshaba solution can be integrated with ATS (Applicant Tracking System). Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss together about the ATS that concerns you.
