Why is Assessment and Development important?

  • Good assessment practices help you to attract and hire the right people, from the beginning: defining roles and selection criteria, to the final stage: providing full, competency based feedback.
  • Future development needs are identified at the selection stage, helping individuals and managers to increase productivity and impact earlier.
  • Development centres ensure the right people are promoted.  They also create opportunities for feedback on development areas, helping to motivate your workforce and retain high performers.

We can help you to…

  • Determine the best assessment tools for the competencies and skills you wish to assess;
  • Identify selection criteria and the most effective tools / tests to use in the selection process; and
  • Objectively assess individuals in line with industry and market conditions, expectations and best practice.
