The Judgment Index™ provides real, quantifiable insight into a person’s judgment and decision making capacities. The Judgment Index™ is a scientific, mathematical, and logically based assessment tool. No other assessment tool available today provides such a unique perspective on measuring judgment. This is critical as the ultimate success of an individual or organisation greatly depends on the strength of judgment applied to a countless number of everyday decisions. From small everyday tactical decisions to the large global strategic decisions, good judgment is the key ingredient in success or failure.

The Judgment Index™ measures judgment strength and capacity in over seventy areas, including:

    • Decision Making Ability and Style
    • Work Ethic and Reliability
    • Ability to Accurately Follow Directions
    • Focus and Concentration
    • Morale and Positive Attitude

    • Assertiveness and Conflict Avoidance
    • Resiliency/Strong Judgment Under Stress
    • Insight and Noticing Sensitivity
    • Engagement
    • Dealing with Difficult People and Situations
    • Ability to Prioritise

Quality conscious organisations strive to ensure their people possess the best skills, processes, and information in order to perform their job and achieve desired outcomes. Good judgment greatly strengthens the outcome for success in the same way that poor judgment will weaken even the best of skill sets and intelligence. Selected Judgment Index™ indicators have provided predictive patterns that represent a high likelihood of consistent behaviours connected to outcomes. The Judgment Index™ has been used with a high level of success in a number of areas.

Risk and safety management issues receive a great deal of attention in business.

Engagement & Retention

How engaged in your company are your employees? Are your employees hanging around for what they can GET from the company or are they actively engaged and working for what they can GIVE to the company?

The emotional attachment an individual feels towards an organisation is a critical factor in determining discretionary effort, loyalty, morale and ultimately performance. These factors are all directly linked to improving staff retention and minimizing staff turnover thus improving your bottom line.

If you are tired of losing your best employees, the Engagement Report from the Judgment Index™ can help identify underappreciated, bored, stressed and restless staff and provide key information about the level of engagement the employees feel toward their place of work.  Identification opens the door to communication, dialogue and understanding, and ultimately, to employee satisfaction and retention.

The Wellness Report is another element of the Judgment Index™ that can assist you in meeting your organisational goals by helping you ensure you have a healthy workforce.

    • Work‐Life Balance
    • Successful Weight Management

The report is a diagnostic and prescriptive guide which provides insight into the present state of an individual’s wellness judgment and offers prescriptive suggestions for improvement for those areas identified as needing some personal attention. This means that an individually tailored wellness program can be implemented for employees that may be struggling with their wellness, or alternatively key areas of concern for employee groups can be identified to help tailor your corporate health programs to meet the needs of your employees rather than taking an “off-the-shelf” approach to corporate health and wellness.
