Mindmill assessments were originally designed for touchscreen, developed for mass screening and delivered for extensive use on a computer within a military context (The British Army Recruit Battery, Australian Air Force, The USAF Recruit Studies, The Bundeswehr Experimental Tests and Belgian Defence Force).
Mindmill personality assessments are based on the 'Big 5' Theory, developed by Raymond Christal, with whom Professor Irvine worked closely.Professor Irvine continued to research Christal’s theory and added an additional domain, ‘Proactive’, to echo 21st century changes in behaviour.
Mindmill was created in 2008 through the merger of a recruitment company and a psychometric assessment construction company, owned by Professor Sidney Irvine.
Mindmill upgraded the original desktop application to an online assessment portal, designed to offer secure and scalable assessment solutions on a national and international level.
The latest Mindmill platform and associated technology modules have been designed to gather, process and analyse various HR data sets. These data sets, when brought together with payroll, time & attendance and performance data, allow an organisation to investigate core HR processes.
