Assessing Talent

What are the most valid assessment techniques?

Publication Date: January 2017

Some of the most important decisions for an organisation are its ‘people’ decisions, who are at the heart of organisational success. People are the driving force of innovation and progression, and in the current market, it is more important than ever for organisations to continually develop to maintain their relevance and competitive position. Assessments help organisations to achieve this through better decisions in hiring, placing and developing talent, ensuring the alignment of talent with the business objectives and vision for the future.

In this research, we have worked to understand the advantages that assessments bring to organisations, for them to be used effectively and to facilitate the continual growth and development of organisations.

By combining our experience of working in talent and assessment for 20 years with research into best-in-practice techniques, this paper presents an objective view into the use of assessments within organisations. We looked at currently used assessment tools and techniques and conducted interviews with global organisations, to understand the benefits that organisations can leverage through assessments.
