Assessment

Assessment of candidates and employees

Hiring decisions are important and mistakes are costly. To help reduce selection bias and help to improve decision quality we provide assessment services to our clients.

Our assessment services range from simple psychometric personality and ability testing to a full-scale assessment centre where a full day of different assessments are made. The main principle for the assessment centre is that each competence is rated independently by 2 different observers/assessors and 2 different methods are used to assess each quality.

As the main reason for a new hire quitting early is a bad fit between themselves and their direct superior or closest co-workers we also suggest using an innovative profiling method to measure the personal fit of each candidate with the hiring manager and the future team. The method is developed by our affiliate company – Teamscope. As a result of the profiling process, the hiring manager receives an interview guide with questions to ask each candidate, in order to probe the differences in their values and personalities to predict their future fit and any potential issues.

What is our process?

1

Competency model is developed and assessment methods agreed upon with the client.

2

All participants complete the assessments (e.g. online questionnaires) agreed upon or assessment centre visit is planned and scheduled.

3

Feedback is provided to the assessed candidates and an assessment report is presented to the client.

How long does it take?

A simple psychometric assessment takes a few hours - after that everything is immediately ready for feedback and client presentation. Teamscope profiling requires 15 minutes from each team member and each candidate. After that, the interactive reports and interview guides are generated immediately. The assessment centre takes more time to prepare, carry out and summarise. Usually 1+1+1 days is the norm: 1 day of preparation, 1 day of assessments and another day for preparing the conclusions, writing the reports and providing feedback for the assessed candidates or employees. The assessment reports are ready a day after feedback sessions are concluded.
