Assessment

Assessments provide an additional lens through which to view the hidden strengths of individuals and teams. We balance art and science, marrying insights gathered during face-to-face meetings with in-depth data analysis.

Asset 2

We believe…

  • Assessment is a tool which helps to develop individuals and enables teams to better understand their skillsets and ways of working to perform more effectively together.
  • Assessment provides data to identify suitability of an individual to a role and culture of the organisation.
  • Assessment should be a positive experience which follows an open and transparent process by asking the right questions and delivering feedback in an objective and impartial manner. The main purpose of an assessment is for individuals to improve their behaviour and performance.

Assessment can help you retain and further develop individuals who have been identified as key parts of your talent pool and who would need support with their progression within the organisation.

Our approach is always to combine psychometric test data with human observation through competency-based interviews. We use your leadership competency framework and tailor our assessment specifically to your needs. Where there is no existing framework in place, we can help establish one.

Recruitment / Selection: make better hiring and selection decisions

Assessment can help you attain an independent and unclouded view of an individual and their capabilities, while adding another layer of risk mitigation during the hiring process. This can be particularly beneficial when many of us continue to work remotely.

Organisational Development: ensure alignment of people’s capabilities when creating or restructuring a team

You may need to use assessment to support your organisational design and development or understanding the skillsets within your teams or leaders. This insight and data can help you to identify areas for personal development and growth as well as highlight any skills gaps for future hiring. It should be viewed as a tool to help you make decisions.

Talent Development: improve personal development and succession planning decisions

Assessment can help you retain and further develop individuals who have been identified as key parts of your talent pool and who would need support with their progression within the organisation.

If you are encountering any of the following within your business, assessments may help to provide some clarity:

Reviewing diversity of thought and creativity within teams and leaders

Identifying capability gaps in the organisation to support the hiring needs

Providing data and insight to de-risk significant people-based decisions

Reviewing people and teams for a team’s integration exercise
