About Us

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela
 

At Pearson TalentLens we believe in Always Learning...

...because there is always room for more understanding.

Learn more about your employees and candidates through scientifically valid, reliable and robust psychometric assessments. Gain a deeper understanding of their values, needs, strengths and weaknesses, so that you are able to understand a person's motivation for work and select and develop the right people for your business.

By learning about your employees, understanding their values, their skills and their areas for development, you are able to understand their needs and use that information to help them achieve and develop their personal work goals, and in turn help to motivate them to achieve more for your organisation.

Our Talent Assessments are used globally by companies both large and small to help further people; the most valuable resource of any business.

Committed to helping you succeed, our team of experts will help to guide you through the selection of tests and best practice implementation for your selection and development decisions. With local support available we can help you to understand and interpret test results so that you can make the best decisions with your people for your organisation.

Our History

The origins of Pearson go back as far as 1724 when Thomas Longman founded Longman. Pearson was actually founded in 1844 by Samuel Pearson as S. Pearson and Son, a small building firm in Yorkshire in the North of England.

By the 1880, Pearson became one of the world's largest building contractors at a time when the industry controlled development of the transportation, trade and communication links that fuelled world economies.

Today, Pearson is a very different company but Weetman Pearson's imagination in harnessing new technologies, bravery of vision and decency to the people and cultures he worked with are values that still underpin everything we do over a century and a half later.

Pearson TalentLens’ particular group, formerly known as Harcourt Assessment, has a long and rich history that dates to the early part of the 20th century and is tied to some of the most respected names in publishing.

Our specific branch was established in 1921, and since this time we have been committed to providing quality assessments, efficient testing procedures and valid and reliable information to help all individuals succeed.

We develop and distribute tests and related products for professionals in many different disciplines, and are committed to meeting the diverse needs of our customers through our people, service, innovation and technology.

We are dedicated to the pursuit of professional excellence, leadership, and growth through acquisition, development, publication, and the maintenance of quality assessment tools in order to anticipate and meet the needs of our customers.
