Assessment and Development Centre is a highly efficient method for evaluating competencies and developing employees’ potential in accordance with their current and future responsibilities, as well as a tool for planning their career path. The Assessment and Development Centre is based on already in use or specially designed competency models and involves a number of activities like group discussions (with or without predefined roles for the participants), individual analytical tasks – working on problems, fact-finding exercises, in-basket tests, thorough structured situational interview, presenting tasks, personality testing (WAVE Professional Styles), aptitude and ability tests – verbal, numerical, diagrammatic, creative thinking, etc.
Internal assessment center / recruitment panel – It is carried out internally for the organization, with its own resources. The tools by which candidates are evaluated are developed by and for the organization without the intervention of external consultants.
External assessment center / recruitment panel – It is carried out by an external consulting company. The consulting company specialists select and, in some cases, develop assessment tools exclusively for the client’s organization. At the discretion of the consultants / client, representatives of the organization may or may not attend the evaluation.
Hybrid assessment center / recruitment panel – It is carried out jointly between the organization and the chosen consulting company.
The insights gained during the Assessment and Development Centers are then structured into detailed profiles based on the relevant competencies. The process also includes subsequent meetings with the participants and their line managers where feedback is provided and development opportunities are discussed.
