Talent Assessment-a closer look
Back To Services


“Nothing is as powerful as an insight into human nature, what compulsions drive a man, what instincts dominate his actions” William Bernbach (1911 – 1982) Doyen of modern advertising who invented creative team structures still commonly used throughout the industry

Our clients use our professional psychometric assessment services to benefit as follows;
1. Improve the quality of employee selection decisions
  • Research by the Aberdeen Group finds that effective use of selected psychometric assessments lead to
    • 15% better first year retention
    • 18% greater new-hire performance
    • 33% greater improvement in hiring manager satisfaction
2. Identify high potential human capital
The principle of “use them or lose them” also applies to talented people. If their employer does not look after them, they will look after themselves by moving on to where they get the development opportunities that they deserve.
3. Identify individual development needs 
Assess your people against your organisation’s specific competency requirements or use our generic competency model to get a scientific and objective view of strengths and development needs. Start closing the gaps by focused development interventions aimed at each individual’s confirmed needs.
4. Decide who to retain in case of retrenchments
Our scientific and objective assessments meet all the legal requirements for reliable and valid assessments of competence
