Talent Assessment & Selection – Effectiveness of various methods

mickyates ideas, Leader, leadership, Talent 0 Comments

Improving the quality of assessments is three times more effective than increasing the size of the candidate pool—and six times more profitable than getting the chosen candidate to accept a lower compensation package according to research published in the Harvard Business Review (Groysberg et. al 2009).

Whether it be for selection of new hires or determining internal candidates for succession pools, we have deep experience with a broad array of assessment methods—business simulation exercises, personality assessment, competency-based behavioral interviews, and others—and know when and how to apply them. In our experience, a variety of complementary methods typically provide the most reliable assessments. Further, not being wedded to a single tool, but having partnerships with the best assessment providers in the field, allows us to develop custom assessment solutions that will best meet the needs of our clients.
