Jombay and Pearson TalentLens unite to launch HiVE


MUMBAI: One of the biggest challenges in corporate India is leadership identification and development.  A recent global survey concluded that two thirds of all companies rank leadership identification as their biggest corporate hurdle.


In a scenario like this, Jombay and Pearson TalentLens have partnered to launch their one-stop online leadership identification and development product, HiVE.


HiVE combines behavioural and cognitive assessments to help corporate identify and develop leadership in a scientific, objective, and transparent manner. This product sees Jombay’s expertise in behavioural and psychographic analysis join hands with Pearson TalentLens’ expertise in cognitive science.


Jombay co-founder and CEO Mohit Gundecha said, “As Jombay evolves its expertise from talent assessment company to a people-first engine to support the entire employee life cycle, we are excited about officially introducing the HiVE with Pearson TalentLens. A large part of our country’s workforce is young and aspires for fast-track growth, and this product will help companies make unbiased decisions to identify and nurture leadership within their organisations.”


HiVE was launched to a closed group of 25 companies across BFSI, Pharma & FMCG, Pharma & Retail, ITeS and Hospitality sectors before its formal launch. The closed group helped HiVE to collaboratively test and fine tune the product for a full launch to corporate India.


Pearson TalentLens India country head & director Philip Kurian said, “Jombay & Pearson and Talentlens's HiVE is an interesting amalgamation of behavioural science, cognitive science, and technology. Its online identity will allow managers to use the product across the country significantly reducing the need for a face-to-face interaction. Moreover, it is easily customisable to any company’s competency framework.”


HiVE provides the company leadership a quantified evaluation of strategic outlook, execution capability and people skills of the employee. The cognitive and psychographic evaluation helps companies in making smart decisions on leadership – it will enable them to confidently select the queen bees of their HiVE.
