Can Do, Will Do, Will Fit

OTL had supplied assessment for key appointments from Board Members through to graduates and team engineers to a rapidly expanding Formula One Racing company.

We had come to understand the culture and what it takes to survive and flourish in a demanding business which was immensely proud of its heritage of success. It was also clear that some very able people who also had excellent engineering skills and a resilient and hard working nature did not thrive in the business. The ‘Will Fit’ element was missing. Some very able candidates simply did not identify with the culture.

OTL was commissioned to develop a tool to identify cultural fit. This meant identifying what captured the culture and identifying ways that fit was and was not manifested. These insights led to the creation of a psychometric tool with good technical qualities enabling an accurate assessment of what had been the ‘missing piece of the jigsaw’.

This was put on-line and has gained considerable traction in the business, deepening the conversation with candidates and identifying their likely identification with the unique culture of the business.
