Credibility and Reliability

The Harrison Assessments Talent Solution is the result of over 25 years of research into what makes people successful at work by Dr. Dan Harrison, HATS combines Paradox Technology™ with 175 behavioural traits including working preferences, motivations, work values, interpersonal skills, interests and attitudes.

The SmartQuestionnaire™ is the foundation for all the reports. It cannot be fooled and has a consistency monitor to ensure accuracy of replies. It performs over 8,000 cross matches behind the scenes and is the equivalent of a whole day’s multiple choice questioning and/or 2071 questions.

Paradox Technology™ sets Harrison Assessments apart. It doesn’t assume definitive behaviours on a linear or bipolar scale. It takes into account that as human beings we are a complex combination of paradoxical traits. For example, we can be both diplomatic and frank resulting in behaviour akin to forthright diplomacy. If we are deficient in both diplomacy and frankness then we would have a balanced deficiency in these traits and more likely to be evasive in our communication. A bipolar measurement is unlikely to distinguish between these two whereby Paradox Technology™ clearly identifies the difference.

Utilizing Enjoyment Factor, Dr. Dan Harrison’s research recognizes that people who enjoy at least 75% of their work are 3 times more likely to be successful and therefore remain longer in the role than those that don’t. The SmartQuestionnaire™ is therefore based on working preferences and takes into account motivations, attitudes, interests, work preferences, work values, interpersonal skills, engagement and retention factors and the fit with the supervisor.



Harrison Assessments has been used by over 2.5 million people in 46 countries and is translated into 25 different languages. Customers include many national and international companies, SME’s, public sector and not for profit organisations to name a few.

In recruitment alone by introducing suitability factors as well as eligibility factors (experience and qualifications) it can increase the prospect of success from an average of 40-45% to nearer 90-95%.
