“The best way to assess a candidate is to just put them in the real job and see how they get on…”

…the next best thing is to use exercises that simulate the actual job! According to experts and significant research, the most predictive methods of job success are Assessment Exercises. These exercises tap into the competencies that the ‘real’ job would require and often take the form of presentations, written work, role-plays, group discussions, in-trays and so on.

The assessments also intend to provide the candidate with an idea of the type of work the job would require them to do should they be selected. This exercises serve as realistic job preview, resulting in candidates having a more accurate picture painted of the job, and thus those who are chosen and subsequently choose to join the company are likely to stay longer simply because they had a better idea of what was expected.

Assessment Exercises result in a better candidate experience and more accurate hiring decisions, often leading to more productive and engaged employees. But remember, without training, ‘a Formula 1 car is only as good as its driver’. Call us now to find out more.

Assessor Training

The biggest risk to assessment is the subjectivity of assessors.

Training helps to increase objectivity and subsequently better hiring decisions.

Having a great tool with an untrained assessor is no different to having a bad tool.

Use BARS for more reliable hiring decisions

Behaviourally Anchored Rating Scales allow you to maximise objectivity

Assessor Rating Forms involve comparing candidate responses to pre-defined behaviours.

Let us develop rating forms with BARS for your exercises so that no matter who is assessing, there is consistency amongst the benchmarks the assessors apply to assess what is good.
