TALENT ASSESSMENT OVERVIEW

 

KNOWING WHICH CANDIDATES AND EMPLOYEES CAN DRIVE VALUE FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION IS A TRUE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AND DIFFERENTIATOR IN TODAY’S MARKETPLACE.

The 2012 Aberdeen study, Assessments – Predicting Productivity and Performance, surveyed over 200 companies and found that the Best-In-Class organizations utilized assessment tools during the pre-hire and post-hire processes, resulting in the very best outcome for the organization from both a cultural and performance perspective. Utilizing these tools helped the companies to better understand how to improve the quality of the people they hire and how to benchmark leadership strengths, and was instrumental in key employee retention strategies.

BEST-IN-CLASS PERFORMANCE

Aberdeen used the following three key performance criteria to distinguish Best-in-Class companies:

  1. The number of employees who received a rating of “exceeded expectations” as of their latest performance review
  2. The number of key positions for which at least one ready and willing successor has been identified
  3. Improvement in hiring manager satisfaction

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE RESEARCH STATED THAT COMPANIES THAT USE ASSESSMENT TOOLS HAD:

  • 91% retention rates as compared to all other organizations that averaged 56%
  • 72% of employees rated as Highly Engaged vs. 42% for all other organizations
  • 72% of organizational goals achieved vs. 46% for all other organizations
  • 72% of new hires meeting time to productivity goals vs. 35% for all other organizations

The modern organization should utilize talent assessment tools as part of an overall organizational strategy in order to make better talent decisions on an individual and organizational level, thereby creating a positive business impact.
