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 either as part of a graduate recruitment or graduate development process.
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. Our 5 tips to assessing graduate article is worth the read.
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. See our Guide To Graduate Recruitment here.
