»Focus: Selection of professional and managerial staff«
With regard to our assessments, we pursue a multimodal approach, as the combined use of various types of diagnostic instruments in comparison to the use of just one instrument has shown a substantial and demonstrable increase in predictability. The instruments are selected according to our customers' requirement profile or competency model. Several different sets of instruments are being used, ranging from discussion-oriented procedures with structured interviews, case studies or role-plays to test methods (e.g. personality questionnaires, performance tests) and internal assessment procedures (e.g. 360-degree feedback).
The main goal of our diagnostic procedures is to identify the right employees for the current and future challenges and, thereby, to contribute to the success of the company. First, we identify the relevant requirements for the target position or target level together with our customers, then, we choose the appropriate methods that best reflect those requirements. The use of sophisticated behavioural simulations allows us to take a look behind the facade of the candidates.
An essential element of our assessment offer is to transmit our profound diagnostic knowledge and expertise to our customers. We support our customers to further professionalize the processes of the selection and development of executives by sharpening the diagnostic competencies of executives and HR managers and, also, by optimizing the quality of the instruments used.
With regard to diagnostics and assessment, one of the key enhancements and innovations is to implement existing and established methods in a virtual environment without reducing the validity of the diagnostic instruments. Our digital application "SIDAN" supports the observation and assessment process while increasing efficiency and transparency and reducing paper usage for assessment and development centres.
