Assessment Center

Learn the Skills of a Prospective Employee through a Method of Assessing Competencies by Group Selection

Assessment Center (AC) is a method of group selection of candidates, which allows simulating the key moments and the most important problems of the given job content, thus better predicting the behavior of the potential employee.

We prepare a unique combination of individual and group assignments for each client that allows evaluating the scope of the participant's capabilities, suitability for a given position and for a particular work team. In addition to the candidates themselves (usually 3-10), present are the evaluators, i.e. most often our personnel staff and client representatives. Duration of the Assessment Center is variable and depends on the amount and difficulty of the tasks; however, it normally takes 3 to 8 hours.

After AC has finished, we prepare a comprehensive evaluation of candidates according to predefined competencies, upon which we can recommend the most suitable candidates and, at the same time, draw attention to possible risks.

Some projects:

  • Getrag Ford Transimssions (automotive) In 2006-2007, there were more than 120 ACs implemented with more than 600 candidates. The project was part of the cooperation during the start-up phase of the company in Slovakia;
