ASSESSMENT & DEVELOPMENT CENTRES
Assessment centres are the ‘gold’ standard for recruitment & selection. They provide multiple ways for employers to assess the suitability of a prospective candidate. The results can then be measured against the required competencies for the role in question.
The Occupational Psychology Group (The OPG) uses a combination of personality tests, skill tests, depth feedback interviews and business simulation tools. This builds a powerful, insightful and objective understanding of a candidate’s current attainment and future potential.
We provide carefully selected ‘off the shelf’ assessments or design bespoke assessment packages. Which depends on our clients’ requirements.
Every organisation strives to achieve high performance. But only those that invest in objective assessment can truly understand the capability and potential of their people.
Assessment centres will commonly combine use some or all of the following:
Development Centres are similar to assessment centres, but focussed on development. The OPG typically designs development centres for high potential development, leadership development and succession planning projects.
Data gathered at the centre can be fed back to candidates. It facilitates personal development planning and, where needed, executive coaching.
Capability assessment and development can also be applied in change management situations. Restructuring or upskilling is often necessary for success. Our consultants analyse assessment data and present a Gap analysis. This considers strengths and development needs at the organisational level.
By focussing learning & development resources on identified needs organisations will achieve a greater return on investment.
