In fifteen years this organization developed its business, increased its headcount and became one of the fastest growing food companies in the UK. The vision was to create an organization that would become a market leader and this has been realized. Almost fifteen years later its continued growth has won it prestigious awards, including being named as one of Britain’s Top Employers for its excellence in HR management.
In considering whether the organization would benefit from assessment, the Managing Director decided to have all Board Members assessed, (including himself) to highlight their strengths and weaknesses. He used the results to reconfigure the Board and decided to integrate assessment into future recruitment to ensure that he had a very strong senior management team in place to manage a fast expanding workforce.
Acknowledging that strong leadership, effective management and a competent workforce was key to growing the business; the Managing Director embarked on a recruitment campaign and introduced psychometric assessment into the process.
Over a ten year period we were involved in the assessment of technical, supervisory and managerial staff as well as the appointment of Directors, using a range of paper based and online tests.
