Assessment Centre Design

Assessment events are a valuable way of observing how individuals work under pressure, amongst and in direct comparison to their peers and provide comprehensive evidence upon which confident selection decisions can be made . At GEM Talent Search we have a strong track record of designing and delivering thought-provoking and tailored assessment and development centres for a wide range of organisations. We work closely and collaboratively with clients to design events that are bespoke and entirely tailored to the tone, context and culture of the organisation. Our solutions are grounded in business reality and typically mirror applicable business and organisational challenges. Supporting our clients to identify key observable success drivers for their potential leaders and building an interesting and thought provoking programme around these factors is our key objective.

In line with research on the validity of assessment and development events, we use a combination of exercises which allow participants the opportunity to demonstrate breadth in their capability and strengths. Typical examples include structured and spot interviews, psychometric profiling and feedback, case studies challenges, in tray and project exercises, group work and strategic tasks. By using multiple points of reference, we are able to showcase a candidate’s full capabilities and really get beneath the surface of the personality in the context of a particular culture. Our assessment processes are rigorous and robust and we conduct intensive feedback sessions following each programme. We also balance assessment with development so that each candidate leaves the programme with a suite of information to guide future engagement in similar events and with clear objectives for self-development.

Our programmes create a dynamic and engaging atmosphere for all concerned and It is always our aim to integrate and embed learning with our clients and their representatives. We help clients identify ways to transfer learning back into the organisation and these events provide a unique insight into external perception of brand, values and assessment capability. As such we encourage our clients to take as active a role as possible in the events, whether as assessors themselves, or as figure-heads who are able to share their experiences and business philosophy with participants.
