New technique for timely burnout detection: Normative-Ipsative split technology ®

Burnout often occurs because the signs are not noticed in time by the employer. This is because standard burnout tests and questionnaires are not good at noticing preliminary stages of burnout. As a result, employees continue to work with complaints and burnout develops.

For this reason, TestGroup has developed a technique that uses artificial intelligence to adapt the questions in the test to the client's answers. This technique is called Normative-Ipsative split technology®. With this AI (artificial intelligence) based technique, The Bridge Burnout Indicator makes doubts in the client's answering behavior transparent. This information is crucial in signaling the development of burnout.
