When recruiting a new employee, managing a reorganization, an unexpected departure or planning a succession strategy, managers and their HR business partners may sometimes feel as though they are playing a game of chance if the right tool or approach is not being used to assess talent.
It is well known that the cost associated with an incorrect decision can be quite substantial and it is especially true in our current context of a shortage of available talent in the marketplace. It is therefore essential to have as much data as possible on the strengths of an individual and the areas of potential risk associated to a candidate before committing to a letter of offer.
In fact, collecting talent data is a crucial step as individuals differ greatly from one another in terms of abilities, personal characteristics, sources of motivation, values, interests, etc. It is also a great source of data to capture as some of these attributes are generally stable over time. While these characteristics are often difficult to observe in a standard interview, they can be quantified using a variety of assessment tools that have been developed and validated over the years by organizational psychologists.
The Talentrix Group incorporates several different hiring tests and a variety of psychometric tools into their practice. This helps us provide our clients with essential information on an individual during the hiring stage and which can also be used in subsequent career development activities.
