Inbox Simulation

Real life, real time assessments.

If you’re looking to understand how an individual will handle the everyday tasks of a role, inbox simulations can help.

Exercises like [Etray] offer a straightforward solution for recruiters looking to deliver [assessment centres] in-house. A vital component of many [selection] processes, simulations like [Etray] recreate a busy email inbox so you can see how an individual responds under pressure. These tests can also offer candidates a taste of what would be expected of them in the role.

Cubiks provides off-the-shelf or fully tailored inbox simulation exercises that meet your exact needs. All scientifically robust, and built with multinational organisations in mind.


Solving realistic problems from a busy email inbox

Whether you’re looking to make quick and informed recruitment choices or you want to develop workforce skills, Cubiks’ Etray accurately assesses a candidate’s problem-solving skills when faced with a busy email inbox.

Etray allows you to:


Evaluate how individuals will perform in a role


Discover how participants work under time pressure


Reduce administration and improve accuracy of assessments

This in tray assessment is packed with a variety of time sensitive, role-based emails to review and respond to. It allows participants to select their chosen responses, before applying a written test for manual evaluation by a trained assessor.

With more emails arriving throughout the test, participants have to think on their feet.

[Selecting] and [developing] your team requires scientifically robust insight into their working practices, which is why we have developed three versions of Etray - one for graduates or junior managers, one for senior management and one for support staff.
