Gallup has conducted assessments for the past 40 years -- with more than 2,000 organizations in 60 countries, 30 languages and 20 industries -- to advance and strengthen hiring practices, put the best managers in place and grow their businesses.

Unlike other companies that offer simple Web-based assessments (and not much else), Gallup doesn't just give you an interview. We provide the analytics and advice to transform the way you attract, recruit, assess, hire, onboard and develop high performers. Our hiring and development philosophy is based on three essential principles:

  • Start with natural talent. We define talent as the natural capacity for excellence, which we measure with scientific assessments that evaluate naturally recurring patterns of thought, feeling and behavior that can be productively applied. Talent is the most critical element to consider when hiring and developing employees. At Gallup, we've developed different predictive assessments that measure talent for a wide range of roles, from the front line to the executive suite. Although skills, education and knowledge are important, nothing predicts long-term success in a role like natural talent.
  • Develop strengths. We focus on developing the ability to provide consistent, near-perfect performance in each role. Gallup research definitively proves that people and organizations function best when everyone develops and leverages his or her strengths. Gallup is the premier partner for helping clients bring out the very best in each employee.
  • Leverage the entire hiring and development process. We provide high-impact consultation for the entire hiring and development process, including the creation of a compelling employee value proposition and targeted recruiting strategy, the implementation of scientifically validated assessments and consultation on hiring, onboarding and strengths-based development.
