Who we are | Kendall Want Associates

Psychologists Ian Kendall and Richard Want founded Kendall Want Associates (KWA) 20+ years ago.


KWA has in more recent times undergone an expansion having grown their service provision stable, which includes psychometrically sound product development including 360 survey creation and roll-out, and IT-platforming. Following 2010, the business modified many of the traditional based services to incorporate cutting edge IT methodologies, both in how information is generated and tailored service delivery. The end-product is a readiness to provide our hallmark quality edge using modern resourcing tools, making for a more consistent, robust, faster service provision than ever before.

We’ve engaged several trusted practitioners with a range of People Performance and Coaching Skills and are confident that we’ll have solutions to most staff related performance issues.

Objective, scientific customised approach

As an external contributor to your workplace, KWA offers an objective delivery of psychological testing with a view to improving employees’ interaction with their work environment.

This differs from many workplaces that rely on their HR department to evaluate the potential of candidates, most times without conducting crucial behaviour management assessments according to best practice.

We comprise information and statistical specialists who use proven scientific methods to ensure all candidate assessments we perform are insightful and beneficial for your workplace. Our tailored approach to improving workplaces through performance management is supported by our trusted reputation.
