Hire Results Hiring Simulation Assessment Centre

An assessment centre is a process where candidates are assessed to determine their qualifications for a specific roles, especially in management. It’s a method of assessing aptitude and performance that employers will use before hiring potential applicants for key roles within their company. This process is increasing in popularity as companies continue to make key hiring mistakes using outdated interview methods and aptitude tests.

An assessment centre requires the company looking to hire to select key competencies from a database that they feel are most related to the job. After they decide what is most important, candidates will login and complete the steps that were set-up for them. Hiring Simulation Assessment has a 1-5 step process. After those steps are complete, each applicant will have a scorecard with how they did.

Why Not Just Use Psychometric Assessment Tools?

Hire Results Ltd believes that Psychometric Assessment tools can be useful in narrowing a large selection of candidates to a shorter list. This type of assessment centre tool (and there are many psychometric tests out on the market today) will tell the employer what the candidate is “Like”. Hire Results Ltd believes that knowing what a person is “like” is important but if the hiring team has no idea if the candidate is able to execute in key areas of the job then “risk” becomes a major element of the hire. The only way to will know if you have selected the right candidate for the role is once they have joined the company – this is a little too late for all parties involved! Hiring Simulation’s assessment centre can show you any red flags a candidate may have long before you hire them.

The difference between a traditional psychometric assessment centre tool and the Hire Results Ltd Hiring Simulation Assessment centre system is having the ability to better understand if the candidate is able to “execute” in the key areas of the job. By allowing hiring teams to see the candidate in real life business settings (similar to the ones they will be performing on the job) is critical for success in the hiring process. The Hiring Simulation Assessment centre process moves the client from understanding what the person is “Like” (in generic terms) to experiencing first-hand the candidates ability to perform key function of the job. With the Hiring Simulation Assessment centre scoring tool, the client now is able to make logical hiring decisions rather than emotional one.

Getting the “Fit” within a company is important to the health of the department and organization. However, Fit is only important if the candidate is capable of excelling in the role they are hired.
