GRADUATE ASSESSMENT

EFFECTIVE GRADUATE RECRUITMENT STARTS WITH IDENTIFYING HIGH POTENTIAL AT GRADUATE ASSESSMENT STAGE

 

Despite over 40% of young adults attending University employers are increasingly discovering that the relationship between degree and workplace success is tenuous at best. This is where graduate assessment becomes important.

Graduate Assessment, conducted by The OPG, offers organisations the best way to objectively assess a graduate. Using market-leading tests that are proven to be 100% effective in identifying potential.

Combining online psychometric testing and face-to-face assessment is a powerful way for organisations to realise a graduate’s true capabilities. While singling out high potential leadership qualities. That so many of today’s promising candidates sadly lack.

Defined as the top 5% of an organisation’s talent. High potential employees are notoriously difficult to identify without psychometric assessment. Which has led to 40% of businesses (Harvard Business Review) incorrectly identifying high potential attributes in their graduate hires.

AN EARLY START TO GRADUATE ASSESSMENT & DEVELOPMENT

The OPG recognises that developing high potential leadership is resource intensive. Applicants demonstrating the right skills, attitudes and leadership potential need to be singled out early. For their potential, and their current capability, to be developed. And this simply cannot be achieved through interview alone.

The OPG designs robust, engaging and consistent graduate selection assessments. Serving as a single point of contact for your online psychometric testingrequirements. As well as providing consulting expertise and support in recruitment outsourcing.

BESPOKE GRADUATE ASSESSMENT DESIGN

As well as having access to market-leading psychometric tests, The OPG also design specialist assessments. These include Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) and assessment centre design. Our consultants work with our clients directly. To craft bespoke competency based interviews, case study exercises, presentations and other specialist materials. All with the aim of helping hiring managers gain a better understanding of a candidate’s behaviour, values and competencies.

SCALABLE

Our graduate assessment tools are completely scalable to address online psychometric solutions of any magnitude. From low volume and niche assessment centres. To bespoke online recruitment processes aimed at larger scale recruiters.
