About BrainsFirst

BrainsFirst is an assessment game platform for talent selection. Recruiters in human resources and sports can use the data-driven cognitive testing to support recruitment decision making. The BrainsFirst brain testing is based on neurological scientific research from the University of Amsterdam.

The science-based gamification platform consists of four different games that measure cognitive abilities in a bias-free and challenging way. Recruiters instantly gain insight into performance and applicants are matched to the most appropriate companies and job offers.

Companies can create brain profiles based on the following words: observe, think, decide, act, organize, and workflow. Recruiters decide on the importance of each skill to achieve the best cognitive fit in their organizations, depending on whether they prefer a candidate to be direct, analytical, persistent, practical, or intuitive.

Applicants will receive an invitation from the recruiting company to enter the cognitive games on the connected NeurOlympics platform. The candidates will indirectly get tested on dozens of aspects of their brain. As a result, recruiters can get a better picture of the applicants’ stress response, working memory, organization skills, or setback reactions.
