- Akhtaboot’s testing platform: Akhtaboot currently provides 2 tests. The first is based on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which is an internationally recognized psychometric test that provides detailed analyses of a candidate’s personality in a work context. The second is the Business English Test, the development of which was outsourced to a team headed by a PhD in linguistics from Georgetown University. The Business English test provides detailed analysis of a candidate’s proficiency in Business English and is designed for non-native English speakers. These tests can be utilized during the recruitment and selection process or just to get a clearer understanding of existing employees skill sets.

Akhtaboot Cares Initiative
Ever since Akhtaboot was first launched, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) was a vital element of Akhtaboot’s strategic plans. Akhtaboot is fulfilling this mission through the Akhtaboot Cares Initiative (ACI), which was launched in February 2009. Since then, ACI has been acting as Akhtaboot’s CSR arm in developing the necessary skills of our young workforce to help them succeed at work and to instill a range of transferable skills that are necessary to land a job in today’s competitive marketplace. Through ACI, Akhtaboot forms partnerships with educational institutions and NGOs all over the Gulf and Levant for the purpose of providing career opportunities to underprivileged members of society, graduates-to-be, and alumni.
The services provided under the ACI include: career-related lectures, CV evaluation services, organizing and participating in job fairs, as well as Akhtaboot’s Microsite Solution.
