At Insight, “Hire the Best” isn’t just a tagline –

it is the driving force behind everything we do.

“We look for three things when we hire people. We look for intelligence, we look for initiative or energy, and we look for integrity. And if they don’t  have the latter, the first two will kill you, because if you’re going to get someone without integrity…” – Warren Buffet

Since our founding in 2000 our tools have elicited information from millions of potential employees on everything from their integrity, ethics, and capabilities, to their use of illegal drugs and their work habits. Our customized assessments go a step further, enabling our clients to reveal which candidate is the best fit for a particular role based on their job behaviors.

From science and technology, to validation and compliance, to sales and service, we stay focused on how we can help our customers navigate the constantly changing face of hiring with the most cost-effective, robust tools available.

Our Purpose:

To secure trust in the workplace through integrity testing.

Our Vision:

To see managers make the right hiring decision every time, their companies thriving, staffed with the best men and women for the job.

Our Mission:

To be the world’s first choice in pre-employment integrity testing. Using our sophisticated web-based integrity assessments, our clients pre-screen job applicants, prompting them to reveal surprisingly honest truths about their personal work ethic and job behaviors that could help or hinder their organizational fit.

Insight Partners with Dr. Mo Wang to Advance Testing

Insight has partnered with Dr. Mo Wang, a tenured Professor at the Warrington College of Business and Director of Human Resource Research Center at University of Florida to conduct longitudinal research on the reliability and validity of integrity testing. As an industry leader in personnel selection and integrity testing, Insight has established an impressive database with millions of cases regarding integrity test scoring and various employee criteria. Together, Dr. Wang, his colleagues, and Insight will continue documenting the validity of integrity testing in predicting adverse risk behaviors. It is this type of partnership that allows Insight to constantly apply the most up-to-date research findings to improve their testing and scoring.

Legal Compliance

All of Insight’s behavioral hiring assessments have been reviewed by Peck, Rubanoff & Hatfield, a law firm located in Portland, Oregon specializing exclusively in management labor and employment law. All assessments are in compliance with the 4/5ths rule as set forth by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as a computation tool to monitor adverse impact in hiring practices. They are also in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), incorporating options to enable employers to accommodate applicants who are sight, speech or otherwise impaired and may have difficulty completing a computerized test. Our behavioral hiring assessments are administered in a manner that protects against disclosure of information that may be viewed as confidential. We also monitor changes in federal labor law very carefully, and make updates to the assessments as needed to ensure continued compliance. The assessments do not include questions that reveal an applicant’s race, gender, disability or other protected status/activity. Instead, the questions are carefully tailored to solicit only information that can be lawfully used in making employment decisions.


Validity is the most important consideration in test evaluation because it speaks to the appropriateness, meaningfulness, and usefulness of the test. At Insight Worldwide we partner with the Warrington College of Business, Human Resources Research Center at the University of Florida to ensure all aspects of development and validation for our behavioral hiring assessments have been met. All Insight assessments have been developed in accordance with the accepted professional standards as described in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Tests. Validation studies detail the scientific research and development practices used in creating a behavioral assessment. Our integrity tests and job fit assessments are validated for accuracy and reliability: two terms that are included in any discussion of legitimate personality and / or behavioral assessments, or other forms of pre-employment testing. Accuracy refers to the evidence that an assessment measures what it is intended to measure and does so in a scientifically accurate manner. Reliability is a gauge of the assessment’s consistency in measuring personality traits.
