People. Passion. Performance.

At Focus Insights, we help to uncover what gets people excited, and then translate that into increased workplace performance.

A Unique Approach

We use a full scope of HR practices in our approach, starting with the most cutting- edge, third-party validated, psychometric workplace assessment tools. We believe that high performance can be achieved, when organizations and their people have the tools, learnings and insights needed to understand their talent. We can then harness that knowledge to drive engagement and enhance performance by mapping out a comprehensive talent strategy that is unique to them.

Validated Assessment Tools

We partner with TTI Success Insights (TTI), one of the most successful industry creators of comprehensive behavioural assessment tools designed to reveal human potential. TTI’s assessments can be used to hire the right person for the job, increase employee productivity, improve corporate culture and boost employee engagement.

We Can Help You Recruit, Develop and Retain Top Talent

We are living in a challenging labour market, where a shortage of experienced labour is leaving many organizations in the lurch. As talent management leaders, we encourage our clients to hire for talent and potential, not just experience. Our diverse collection of assessments can uncover a candidate’s unique strengths, motivators and talent potential, paving the way to successful hires who stay longer and are passionate about what they do. Those same assessments gathered in recruitment can also provide insights into ways to onboard, engage, improve performance and communication, develop corporate culture and motivate your teams.

We Understand the Importance of Emotional Intelligence

Research shows that a person’s emotional quotient or EQ can be a more effective determinant of their potential success than their IQ. Not to mention all of the other studies that show a correlation between EQ and qualities like leadership potential, employability, health, happiness and even success with relationships at work.

Our assessment tools are designed to uncover Emotional Intelligence  and highlight a suite of skills from self-awareness to  self-management, motivation, empathy and relationship-building.   

We Have the Tools to Help You Navigate Change and Create Connection

These days, post-Covid, the workplace looks very different, and organizations that are adept at change are the ones that will thrive. We have the experience to help you and your people navigate this change and transition to a virtual or a hybrid work model. In an unconnected and virtual world, our tools, combined with our experience and processes, can provide solid insights to help build relationships, create connection, enhance communication, build psychological safety and increase performance and productivity.
