Benchmark Employer Advice, advice-centre
We trialed a new way of recruiting with competency based assesment days, giving our clients the chance to be Alan Sugar for the day.
Our candidates were put through their paces with team activities, presentations, speed interviews and debating challenges all tailored to each client and each specific job. Each day has had 100% hire success rate. Candidates have relished the opportunity to demonstrate what they can do, rather than just talk and tell you. The feedback has been that they have loved the competition aspect of the process. One of the most insightful aspects for you as a hiring manager is the ability to see people interact with others, see the natural leaders emerge, the mediators listen and consult, the sales people stand out and close you!
Don't just take our word for it.
"Just wanted to say, that after our assessment day conducted by yourselves that I am totally sold on the concept.
The day was run seamlessly and we got a great result.
The idea of creating different tasks to show different skills is great and I have to say I had my doubts about how effective it would be, but we got a superstar from it."
