A personality measure of the "fit" to role, derailers and integrity of potential and current employees
Giotto is one of the first personal integrity assessments to be researched and developed solely in the UK. The tool is ideal for use just prior to interview. The results of the test provide an indication of a candidate’s likely behaviour in the workplace. It also offers a focus on candidates’ attitude, enabling further questioning and qualifying during the interview stage.
Giotto is offered as an ipsative tool, in recognition of the potential difficulties apparent when measuring candidate integrity. This format helps to avoid the effects of a candidate lying or faking their responses.
As it is used in occupational settings, Giotto uses contemporary neural network techniques, in order to unpick the complex issues associated with personal integrity.
Delivered online, the untimed test takes approximately 20 minutes to complete requiring the candidate to respond to 101 items.

The term integrity can be somewhat subjective and can mean different things to different people. Within an occupational or work setting we take it to mean: “The values, behaviours, attitudes, actions and thoughts which an individual holds and demonstrates compared with those values etc. which an employer expects from an employee within a particular role”.

This approach helps to provide an accurate and reliable measurement of candidate strengths and weaknesses, spanning a total of 7 distinguishable areas:
A candidate scoring well on these 7 areas may enable protection against:
Scores on the seven dimensions can then be matched by the hiring organisation to specific job competencies.
Giotto is relevant to all roles but individual organisations will have their own culture and associated staff expectations which candidates can be measured against.
Designed to save time and offer greater flexibility, the questionnaire is available online and in paper versions. The online questionnaire generates a combined profile and narrative report. The paper-based questionnaire is available for scoring via a bureau service and an electronic report is generated for you.
The scales of Giotto reflect the habits, attitudes and behaviours which many organisations are keen to measure in their staff. Giotto recognises the potential difficulties inherent in the accurate measurement of integrity and is therefore presented as an ipsative questionnaire.
Giotto is particularly suited for use pre-interview, indicating particular aspects of a candidate’s work-based behaviour and attitudes which may benefit from further probing during the selection process e.g. during a competency-based interview. Research shows that organisations can predict over 70% of performance by using the right tools.
