Candidate & Employee 
Assessment Centres

What is a Candidate and Employee Assessment Centre, and why does it matter to your business?

We understand it can be difficult to recruit (or promote) the right people into the right roles. That’s why we provide the Employee Assessment Training and Tools to make the process as easy as possible for you and your business through a well-equipped Employee Assessment Centre.

When designed and administered properly, Employee Assessment Centres are one of the most reliable and objective methods of assessing candidates. An all-around approach is the best way to determine the right applicant for a role and we use methods including psychometric testing (eg EQ and IQ), job-specific case studies and behavioural interviews.

Through an Employee Assessment Centre, you can develop an authentic view of each candidate, helping you to make the right decision.

Who is it for?

Assessment Centres can be developed for a variety of participants, from apprentices to senior-level management. We design the right tools for your needs and work with you to ensure you’re happy with the outcomes from your Assessment Centre Training.

Our approach to assessment centres is all about you and your objectives, be it new hires, selecting existing staff for new roles, or reviewing the knowledge, attitude, skills and habits of existing staff across the business.

We work with you every step of the way to understand your goals and make sure you get the final outcomes required from your employee assessment centre training.

The impact it will have

Every business wants to be cost-effective. Using in-depth assessments allows you to get an insight into how candidates might perform in their role, reducing the chances of mistakes being made during recruitment and optimising your return on investment.

They’re also a great way to increase the potential of your current workforce. You can get an indication of someone’s strengths and weaknesses from their assessment centre results and work with them to improve areas of weakness and build on strengths. All of this will help identify potential superstars in the making.
