Assessment & Development Centre

The key to success in any organization is identifying, developing, and empowering the right people- Craig Groesche.

As the industry-leading expert, we have partnered with PSI, a world leader in talent measurement & the fastest growing global assessment solutions company to provide VirtualAC™, a powerful behavioural assessment tool used for selecting and developing leaders or high potential talent.

Assessment & Development Centre

Our Assessment & Development Centre assesses and develops employee capability based on a set of identified competencies, so they can help navigate the organization through the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment.

The challenge of finding objective data on people capabilities that can help make informed decisions on talent positioning and growth is no longer associated to the Human resource function but has also dragged business leaders to rethink their strategies. There is now an urgent need for structured and transparent approach to measure the presence of identified competencies, relevant for different roles as feel-based decisions are now a thing for the past. Such an objective process, apart from creating an established and acceptable methodology, also provides a level-playing ground for people in the evaluation process.

Recognizing this sensitivity and need, our Assessment and Development Process is designed based on researched tests and simulation exercises that maps the competencies required for specific roles. The uniqueness of our process is in going beyond, by creating a roadmap for addressing the development needs.
