Assessments are proven and valid tools in recruitment and in potential analysis. As a development tool, they help evaluate strengths and weaknesses and compare self-perception with how others perceive you. They also provide a good basis for professional and personal development. An individual assessment is concerned not with testing specialist knowledge, but with observing and appraising cross-functional skills.
Mäder & Partner carry out assessments at all levels of seniority. Candidates are appraised by two qualified assessors (dual control principle). Their behaviour is observed in a number of situations involving realistic exercises. We conduct our assessments in line with the documented standards, which are available at www.arbeitskreis-ac.de.
We provide vital tips on effectiveness in current and future roles. The process involves various psychological tests, stress interviews, comprehensive skills-based interviews and the creation of a personality profile. It concludes with a clear assessment of a candidate’s suitability for the specific position.
Following the individual assessment, the observers write a report for the client. Participants receive the same report during the face-to-face feedback meeting at which, in addition to feedback, the development priorities are discussed. No special preparation is necessary for the assessment.
