I am interested in determining core competencies that are aligned with organisational strategy and carrying those competencies down through the organisation via the recruitment and selection strategy as well as the performance management processes to ensure that the overall strategy of the organisation is implemented by the employees and does not only remain an idea at the executive level.”

Ashika Bishun

Ashika is a Psychometrist registered with the HPCSA since 2007. She graduated with a Bachelor of Social Science from UKZN, and Honours in Psychology from Unisa. Ashika’s experience in psychometry is extensive, with approximately 14 years of experience varying between corporate and private consulting work. Ashika is an Associate Consultant at Ann Turner & Associates. In addition to Psychometry, Ashika also does coaching.

“My passion is people; I thoroughly enjoy working with various individuals. I believe that psychological assessments which are used ethically provide an invaluable tool to assist both companies and their employees. Employees find out more about themselves and employers can find the right match for their teams.

In addition, I believe that assessments can assist with building stronger teams if people understand each other better. Most of our time is spent in the work environment and I am strongly of the opinion that people need to be content and happy in their place of work, despite the general stresses that they face daily.

“Love what you do” is a saying that resonates with me. If people enjoy what they do and where they work, they will put in more than expected thus improving productivity and business performance. However, the employer needs to understand their employees and the employees must feel respected and valued.
