Assessment/Development Centre Design and Delivery

OTL have considerable expertise in designing and delivering assessment centres for all employee levels, from customer facing roles through to Chief Executive roles. We have delivered assessment centres for many major organizations in the public and private sector.

But in research assessment centres have consistently failed to live up to the claims made for them. At OTL, using the outcomes of this research, we design and deliver assessment centres - whether for selection, development or for both - which reduce the risk of wasting your investment.

We take great care to produce activities in which participants can see themselves professionally reflected. This improves engagement with and ownership of outcomes. We will work with you to ‘brand’ an initiative and get ‘buy in’ from delegates, with information packs and/or briefing sessions for managers and delegates. We have developed a wide range of analytical and interactive exercises for a range of public and private sector organizations.

We have also provided independent advice on the quality of existing processes (see Case Studies) or existing competence frameworks. We work together with our clients and can develop internal resource when necessary. We have broadcast quality observation exercises filmed to help improve observation, recording and evaluating skills.

So whether you are considering implementing an assessment centre for selection or development or have concerns about what you are currently doing, talk to us.
