Signium: The Critical Role of Intuition in International Business

New research from Signium reveals that 96% of business leaders report that intuition is important in hiring and promoting staff.

The traditional executive search methods typically rely on data-driven competency models and psychometric testing. However, Signium assessed the value of intuition to business leaders, hoping to empower HR decision makers to use broader models of assessment, including 'soft' measures.

The research found only 55% of HR decision makers reported that intuition was very important when they were personally looking to hire or promote someone, compared to 67% of commercial decision makers.

The report also contains evidence of the importance of intuition more broadly within business decision making, comparing the value placed on intuition across 12 different countries, assessing its perceived use between men and women, and considering other variables such as company size.
