What are assessment days?
An assessment day is a specialised group interview process. Twelve Recruitment thrives on and dedicates ourselves to organising an assessment day alongside our client. Typically, we would hold these in your offices and bring in between 10-16 extremely suitable candidates (that we have already interviewed and screen) based on the specific needs of your company. The schedule normally follows these guidelines: first, a presentation by us and then one by your company, next, we proceed onto group activities and scenario-driven examples, and last, candidates would be invited into one-on-one interviews to end the day. You can focus on a handful of candidates that have shined throughout the day or invite everyone; we are happy to craft the day to your liking! Our only requirement for the day is working towards filling all of your current vacancies.
How can assessment days benefit my company?
The main benefit of an assessment day is the simplicity it offers for you! The entire interview process is compiled into one day of assessing and determining the suitability of the candidates we would put forward. Instead of holding multiple stages strung throughout different days, everything is combined into one day. Throughout the day, you can involve as many current employees as you want too; it is important to really get someone that has all the technical requirements for your role, but is also the right cultural fit for your company. Assessment days are also the best tool to use if you are looking to hire more than one person at a time. If you are looking to start a team of four new employees within your company, we would set up an assessment day with candidates that fit all your requirements and would be the correct hire for your offices. At the end of the day, the decision ultimately lies with you. Our clients have loved the results of the assessment days we have put on for them!
What is psychometric testing?
Psychometric testing is a new addition to our services that is available as an option within our campaigns. This test brings the psychological aspect of hiring into the process. It can also be seen as a non-emotional element to hiring that tells you the exact science behind the selling style of the potential candidate, what their behavioral attitudes are, and can determine if they are the right cultural fit for your company! During the test, your potential candidates will answer an online questionnaire that determine what would be the best way to manage them and where their behavioral strengths and weaknesses lie.
What are the benefits of psychometric testing?
There are many benefits of psychometric testing. When a candidate undergoes testing, we will send a full report of the findings right to you. This report will show you a plethora of information, but more importantly, psychometric testing tells you how to grow the candidate professionally, what would be the most efficient manner of training them, and what would be the correct way to manage them. You will also receive graphical representations of your candidate’s core competencies and behaviors, along with, tailored questions that will help you determine the candidate’s suitability and reduce the potential of having a costly ‘bad’ hire. Psychometric testing has been proven to raise the rate of success in onboarding employees while reducing the risks of hiring.
