Work-based Integrity Assessment

Assessment process:

We supply the GiottoSA questionnaire as a paper or computer-based (pdf form) test. The Giotto test takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. It is presented as an ipsative (forced choice) questionnaire, to help eliminate the faking and manipulation of results.

Our bureau service generates a narrative report (using SA norms) that shows the candidates' scores over the 7 factors: Prudence, Fortitude, Temperance, Justice, Charity, Faith and Hope.

Giotto scores should not be interpreted in isolation. An account of respondent’s work history, social and educational background should also be taken into consideration.

Giotto recognises that each employment setting will require an optimal balance of characteristics among its employees in order to utilise their strengths and accomodate their weaknesses. Giotto is therefore intended for a wide use within work settings.


In order to make the most of the assessment, we set up personal training seminars to coach psychologists/psychometrists in business ethic practices, the use of the Giotto, and the interpretation of the factors.

Our standard Giotto training consists of two work sessions (not on the same working day):

  • Session 1 - Theoretical training, covering all the necessary background information on integrity assessment and the Giotto Workplace Integrity questionnaire. The interpretation of the 7 Giotto factors are treated in detail with comparative profiles and case studies.
  • Session 2 - Practical training, trainees profile reports and/or profile reports for any other candidates previously assessed, are discussed in detail as a practical work session.
