WeSuggest is much more than just a recruitment platform…

Developed by researchers who are experts in assessment science, it uses a recommendation algorithm to provide you with a list of 40 skills to choose from, depending on your specific challenges and recruitment needs.

A competency model that’s unique on the market, just like you!

The IDEAC model is a skills base that resonates in tune with what businesses expect from the assessment process. It is used to measure various facets of human functioning (behaviours, beliefs, learning, etc.) and thus to understand complex phenomena in the workplace, such as influence and decision-making.

 A model designed with you, for you!

The IDEAC model was designed after field analysis identifying the skills most sought after by employers. This analysis was supplemented by a forward-looking approach based on research, such as that conducted by the World Economic Forum on 21st Century skills.

Organised around five key dimensions (Influence, Decisiveness, Efficiency, Agility, Cooperation), the IDEAC model encompasses the 40 most sought-after soft skills for dealing with 21st-century challenges.
