It is due to the finding that 95% of candidates exaggerate to get a job causing an employee turnover of 80% which in fact, could be avoided! Assessments allow the creation of customized training programs maximizing the results for each participant, develop better managers; accelerate team achievements and alert top management to potential problems if managers´ goals are not aligned with organisational goals, improve customer service, ease frustrations and interpersonal conflicts.

Assessment tools should be included to the toolkit of every self-conscious manager. Most of them can be used throughout the employee life cycle for selection, on-boarding, managing and strategic workforce planning. Assessments also help identify the training needs of staff and make talent management more effective.

  • Make better hiring decisions
