Selection Assessment

Within the scope of a Selection Assessment the suitability of an (internal or external) candidate for a specific position is diagnosed. Based on systematic behavioural observations, the tool offers maximum predictive accuracy regarding the fit of person and position, since the soft skills of the applicant are assessed via simulations of success-critical situations that mirror the challenges of the target position.


An individual combination of different simulations (e.g. dialogues, meetings, presentations) and additional diagnostic tools (e.g. Interviews, Personality and Ability Tests) provides an optimal basis for the observers to generate a holistic picture of the personal fit of the candidate as well as their strengths and weaknesses profile in view of the aspired position. At the same time, the candidate has the opportunity to experience the organisation’s expectations at first hand and to get a clear picture of the challenges linked to the target position. Thus, both parties obtain a sound basis for the decision making process and the risk of misplacements is minimized.
