Predict Performance With
Competency-Based Solution

What is Competency?

Competency is a combination of motives, traits, self-concepts, attitudes or values, and any individual characteristic that can be reliably measured or counted and that can be shown to differentiate superior from average performers.

While every occupation and job position requires different unique sets of competency, Expivotal has invented POLAR assessment to help individuals and corporates to precisely measure one’s competencies at work.
