Our Global Team - What to Expect

Over the last few years, the InterACT Global Team has increasingly grown, incorporating psychologists and psychometric experts in Australia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. With our team comes an immense wealth of knowledge in people’s behaviour sciences (DISC, Values & Company Culture and Emotional Intelligence) and experience in recruitment practices and psychometric consulting which spans across a broad range of industries. At our core we are focused on the people element in business, and we aspire to see people effectively recruited, managed, motivated, engaged and aligned in their workplace.

This has ultimately led us to psychometric assessments—incredibly powerful tools designed to assist businesses in their decision-making processes during their HR life cycle. These assessments remove the guesswork out of your decision-making process and will help you to be better at understanding individuals, how they operate and what motivates or demotivates them. Our global team is built upon years of experience in the use of this bouquet of psychometric assessments and their application within large and small businesses alike. It is our passion for these tools that has led us to where we are today, providing the best psychometric assessments on the market, in order to stimulate healthy grow within businesses and most importantly to effectively develop, motivate and engage their most important asset—their people.
