As Chartered Occupational Psychologists, our core professional competence is the objective assessment of people and performance. Assessment tools can drive better recruitment outcomes and help organisations realise the most from people across the whole employee lifecycle.
The value of using more scientific approaches to recruitment has long been established. The best performing organisations show candidates how serious they are about their people by using a high-impact, high-credibility recruitment process. They don’t leave recruitment to chance, they will use more structured, objective methods of assessing the capability of their people and prospective candidates.
For Best-in-Class businesses, assessment now plays a vital role across the whole employee lifecycle, with psychometric tools being used more widely across organisations to inform talent decisions. The unique psychological insights gained from psychometrics and assessment centres can help tackle issues of onboarding, identifying high-potential talent, succession planning, retention and boost overall employee engagement and productivity.
The challenge when deploying assessments more widely across the organisation is to ensure consistency of the personal qualities being measured and the integrity of how these measurements are being applied. Ensuring an up-to-date and relevant competency framework is in place is key here, to ensure that all assessments are aligned towards realising the actual business goals and objectives. Research shows that companies that apply a consistent competency model across all areas of talent management activity are 5 times more likely to achieve Best-in-Class performance than those that don’t .
