assessment & development centre design & delivery

"He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened."

Lao Tzu

Assessment and development centres are increasingly used at all levels to help organisations make the right decisions about individuals for selection, succession planning, talent management and organisational or individual development purposes.

Using a framework of job profiling, organisational values and competencies, a robust assessment process can reduce turnover and recruitment costs, and increase applicant and employee satisfaction. Development centres can improve performance, morale and motivation.

The assessment design and delivery service can help by offering flexible support, ranging from advice through to total programme design and implementation.

Elements of the service may include the following:

  • Job analysis and profiling
  • Competency design
  • Assessment/development centre design
  • Individual or team psychometric assessment
  • Bespoking, customising or updating of existing exercises
  • Assessor training
  • Centre facilitation
  • Provision of skilled consultants to act as assessors
  • Exercise marking
  • Individual feedback and development planning

By using assessment and development centres organisations can improve their decision-making and the contribution of their teams and individuals.
