Why Measure Perseverance?

Perseverance, or grit, boils down to the drive and determination to complete an objective, regardless of the time it takes to finish or the challenges that emerge along the way.

Perseverant people demonstrate resilience to obstacles in their way and persist tenaciously toward their set goals. Since challenges are inevitable, perseverance is extremely valuable in the workplace.

Individuals with high levels of grit tend to feel more successful and accomplished because they keep working on projects despite setbacks, often improving their circumstances or skills. They are much more likely to adopt a growth mentality and are better prepared for complex assignments or roles.
