Al-Mayadin provides a unique variety of the Psychometrics tests in the Arabic Language besides other languages. Our research has found that the tests designed for the foreign cultures don’t maintain their dependability and validity when translated “directly” to other languages and cultures. Therefore, we have invested a lot in adapting the Psychometrics in a sound and scientific manner to match with the region’s culture.
As a result, Al-Mayadin has set out to build a strategic partnership with the global tests specialist, Psytech, one of the most important developers of the most dependable and valid tests, and made which available in Arabic. We have also developed tests so as to be presented in writing or using computers or the internet.
Our tests are categorized whether personal or capability tests. And so many other types as well are available within each category. Such variety guarantees the fulfillment of the most assessment needs.
First: Measurement Uses:

Assessment Centers refer to the process, not to the place. And the process will incorporate the assessment of the possibility of the individuals to occupy certain jobs through the use of the Psychometrics associated with a study of the individual behavior within a host of the work situations simulation that aims at displaying the competences required for such a job. The assessment centers will be different from the development centers in the way those results are used. The Assessment Centers are largely used for the purposes of selection and hiring, while the development centers are designed to determine the developmental needs of the individual or the workgroups; and there are lots of the researche that show that the use of objective methodologies like the assessment centers helps the companies procure, develop, enhance and retain the human resources in a more effective manner than those approaches that rely on the individual insights and subjective methodologies like, interviews and referrals.

- Selecting Leaders and High Potentials
Al-Mayadin prides itself of the possession of a large pool of expertise in the whole Middle East region and the international levels that enable identifying “high potentials” and “leadership potentials” from among the employees. Al-Mayadin could observe and assess the leadership candidates on the basis of the perks and advantages that would likely lead to stronger future leaders through a combination of the Assessment and Development Centers, where we would develop the individual talent reports and a summary of the advantages of each candidate. The outcomes could be used in the planning of the job succession, talent management, leadership skills development programs.
We also help determine the leadership criteria that would suit the institutions and how far those criteria would participate in spotting the future leaders. The outcomes of the talent assessment could associate the results of the job performance to result in a profound and in-depth assessment of the individual capabilities and potentials. And upon defining the leadership criteria we don’t count only on the current performance, but rather, we also verify the general competences, adaptability, learning ability, and development.

The modern measurement methods aim to position Al-Mayadin at the forefront in the field of helping corporations determine the learning, individuals and workgroups development needs. And the center would accurately determine the effective solutions as to the needs of training and development using unique technologies and well-advanced methodology that could be applied in both Arabic and English. And the results of our development centers could be capitalized upon to analyze the training needs and build personal development programs, or to enhance and reinforce the self-awareness of the individuals and workgroups through the following:

Our objective assessment methodology will highlight the needs of development whether at the individual or workgroups to epitomize the training and development budgets more effectively and accurately.
- Development reports: Al-Mayadin will provide the development reports to the Human Resources department or Training Groups. Such reports will combine the results of assessment from several sources in the development centers in a whole comprehensive report that will shed the light on the strengths of the candidates’ competences and development needs. The objective assessment technologies developed that we have developed will guarantee the veracity and credibility of such reports, which have proven invaluable as to a number of the institutions partnering with us.

The Comprehensive 360-degree assessment program spans the assessment responses, including the colleagues, managers, and direct reports, and any other third parties who have connection with the employee, which will extend a unique and realistic view to the efficacy of the employee in the workplace in such a manner that would enhance the self-awareness of the individuals and strengthen their adoption of the developmental initiatives.
