TOKYO – September 29, 2021
EdulinX Corporation (Head Office: Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Peter A. Owans), a provider of EdTech solutions for English language learning and human resources development, has announced a partnership agreement with Thomas International, a leading global psychometric assessment provider headquartered in the UK.
EdulinX is partnering with Thomas International as part of its commitment to introducing some of the world’s best products and solutions to its clients in Japan through partnering with top overseas providers. EdulinX has successfully partnered with well-known companies including Video Arts, Vado, and WSJ.
One critical element that has been missing from our programs and partnership portfolio is psychometric assessment tools, and we are delighted that EdulinX can finally bring Thomas International’s extensive range of assessment solutions to Japan. The amazing customer stories of major global companies and institutions, including some high-profile Japanese multinationals, convinced us to bring Thomas to Japan. It took a lot of effort, but we are finally able to officially introduce these fine and well-proven assessment tools to our Japan-based clients as well as training providers and facilitators alike.
Thomas International is excited about the new strategic partnership with EdulinX Corporation. At Thomas, we believe in unlocking the potential of every individual, team, and organisation by making the complex nature of human behavior, aptitude, and personality easier for everyone to understand. Our talent assessment platform helps organisations around the world transform their performance through smarter people decisions, looking beyond just skills and experience to unleash the power of their people. With EdulinX, we found the right partner to expand the use of our portfolio in Japan. Together with EdulinX we will accelerate the localisation of all our assessments for Japanese language and business culture.
Psychometric Assessments provide deeper insights into people’s motivations: why they behave the way they do, what their potential is, how they communicate, and how they like to be communicated with. The insights that assessments provide also help to reduce bias in people processes and increase diversity and inclusion – objectives that are essential to any business. Using the Thomas suite of assessment tools, EdulinX will gain capability to provide new solutions in areas such as:
- Increasing understanding of how people behave at work and prefer to communicate
- Identifying and maximising development opportunities
- Reducing employee churn rate
- Increasing employee engagement, wellbeing, and motivation at work
- Improving recruitment
- Increasing employee self-awareness
