IDAK provides six different levels of talent assessment tools and services.

At the heart of any aptitude assessment system is a core of assumptions about behavior and potential. We believe every person is created with innate natural talent strengths. When properly identified, these talents can lead individuals to their career sweet spots. Companies and organizations can learn to design job descriptions which bring out the best in each person’s strengths and promote a TEAM workforce.
