Why we exist Natural Intelligence

The need for natural intelligence in the age of artificial intelligence


As automation takes up rote tasks and complex new age business models are invented: companies only seek and retain those human resources who can apply their innate natural intelligences and add value to the company’s growth agenda.

However, every year millions of youth graduate from an outdated and highly theoretical education system with degrees that are soon becoming irrelevant.

Unemployability is a looming socio-economic and humanitarian crisis!

Explore the menu on the left to know more

By incepting ‘mental models’ we give learners an easy to understand and intuitive rubric for applications of natural intelligences at the workplace.

Applying these as opposed to just case studies or theoretical concepts that are hard to recollect at time of use gives an edge. Especially so in a dynamic environment where every situation or challenge is different hence what matters is how one thinks, decides and responds.

  • Natural Intelligence Profile
  • Job Access

REIMAGINING ASSESSMENTS

Our proprietary technology ‘observes’ the learners and their responses during their engagement with our platform through simulated environments that resemble situations, challenges and opportunities on the job.

At the end it computes a Natural Intelligence Profile (NIP) for each learner to illustrate their attitudes, abilities, behaviors and workplace intelligences.

REDEFINING HIRING

The NIP or CV 2.0 is then used to create job access in SMEs and Startups in metros, tier 1 & 2 cities. Thereby also redefining the hiring experience for smaller enterprises who form the backbone of our economy and also need a high quality workforce to remain operational as well as grow.
