Overcome Gender, Racial and Disability Bias

Imagine a solution that levels the field for everyone

Current assessment systems offer little or no transparency. But with VALID-8, you can clearly measure all the multi-dimensional attributes of a person’s capability, with nothing implied, assumed, or left to chance. This levels the field for everyone and erases any biases —  unconscious or otherwise that can contribute to racial, gender, and disability-based discrimination.

Capture Real Performance and Capability

Simple, mobile-friendly, menu-driven process

VALID-8 allow users to accurately demonstrate they have met a requirement with real and relevant content. Video, audio, images, documents, testimonies, certificates, comments and even links to social sites can be uploaded and linked to specific learning criteria. It can even identify gaps in training and generate development plans.

Provide Proof of Skills and Competence

Improve safety and productivity

Proving you can do something, is more relevant than explaining how you can. VALID-8 users can demonstrate clear compliance and skills, applied safely and consistently.  Remove risk, eradicate doubt and provide trust and robustness in one solution.
