A Brave, New, Virtual World: SHL Introduces RemoteWorkQ

MINNEAPOLIS, March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – SHL, the market leader in psychometric talent solutions and the world’s largest private employer of occupational psychologists, announced today the RemoteWorkQ, the first assessment designed to help companies and their employees adapt to a new, and likely permanent, reality where work outside the office is the new normal.

“Mass remote working is likely to continue for months – if not longer. SHL has invested heavily in technology to enable this transformation,” said Andy Bradshaw, SHL CEO. “Companies that succeed in making this transition will excel. The others risk being left behind.”

SHL’s RemoteWorkQ was designed using the same scientific approach as its ground-breaking Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ), giving leaders and managers the means to gain analytical insights into the preparedness of their employees to work remotely – identifying strengths and areas for development and support.

Like its recently unveiled Virtual Solutions Suite, the RemoteWorkQ will be accessible via subscription to SHL’s TalentCentral platform.

The RemoteWorkQ will also be available to candidates seeking employment, and SHL is prepared for more than 50 million assessments to be taken in the first six months after its launch.

“This is the result of listening to our customers and understanding their needs,” said Arthur Rassias, Chief Revenue Officer. “SHL invented workplace psychometric analytics and we’re changing the landscape again.”

Decades ago, SHL introduced the most powerful and scientifically valid predictor of workforce performance – the OPQ. Taken by millions in more than 150 countries and creating over 45 billion data points for benchmarking capabilities, the OPQ enables thousands of businesses to gain valuable insights into their workforces.

SHL’s RemoteWorkQ will be available later this week. Learn more here.
