Midot | Research & Development

Midot’s R&D translates our assessment science in three ways:

SCIENCE AT YOUR SERVICE

Transforming science for the benefit of our clients. Emerging discoveries placed at your service.

MAKING CLIENT NEEDS PRIORITY

Paying attention to client needs. Translating requirements into research priorities.

RESEARCH, DATA, SERVICE, RESULTS

From ideation initiation by the Midot team, to a massive statistical database and focus on relevant research, all for the benefit of MIdot’s clients.

Midot strengthens its R&D capabilities through local market partnerships at each stage of the product development process – from early stage theory based thinking with users and field experts, to late stage piloting with key clients.

Midot’s multilingual offering is also a result of investing in R&D: the tests and assessments are not only translated. They are culturally calibrated and rigorously cross-tested to ensure cultural adaptation, compatibility and reliability of psychometric data in every language and territory we serve.

Midot’s technology enables organizations of all sizes to manage end-to-end selection and recruitment processes from one centralized multilingual online platform. Our technological R&D ensures economical, fully secured online tests, delivered through a unique platform that enables exceptional convenience and flexibility for both operators and candidates.

Midot Justification Model (MJM)

A unique contribution to the professional literature

Integrity testing is designed to predict counterproductive work behaviors (CWB). A primary rationale behind integrity testing is based on the theory that attitudes and justifications towards CWB are predictive of those behaviors. However, very little theoretical information currently exists regarding the types and dimensions of these justifications. The aim of Midot’s present model, therefore, was to provide a theoretical typology of CWB justifications. Accordingly, Midot’s model makes meaningful advancements to the professional literature and our understanding of how employees justify engaging in CWB. Moreover, Midot’s model has practical implications for the development of more advanced and accurate integrity tests.
