Airlines, and those in the aviation sector, need to operate with safety, execute on-time schedules, support inflight sales, and provide a smooth travel experience.  Through our partnerships with several airlines we've provided integrated talent management solutions that select superior performers who achieve these goals.

In our validation work, Corvirtus administers a spectrum of assessments to current employees and asks supervisors to complete evaluations of their performance. The data determines which assessments predict  performance and should be used for hiring. This aviation validation process provides meaningful insights for leaders and builds the strongest talent assessment for both results, the candidate experience, and legal defensibility.  Key results from our validation studies across airlines and aviation enterprises are shared below.
