Our approach to assessments
Hiring in talented employees who have the necessary skills and competencies required to perform successfully in their roles is critical to achieving a competitive advantage and driving performance. It’s equally important to hire individuals who are likely to fit into the culture of your organisation. Through the use of well defined and measurable competency frameworks PeopleSense is able to provide you with valid and reliable information about your prospective hire.
Different roles and levels of functioning within organisations require different types of cognitive abilities.
At PeopleSense we assess specific cognitive skills required for the role.
We also assess strategic capability for five different levels
of work .
Different roles, tasks and team cultures require unique sets of behaviours for individuals to be successful.
Matching behaviour to the role context is critical in predicting future success.
We assess personality, EQ, work roles, strategic values, and interests.
Competence comprises atitudes, skills and knowledge. We assess broad based business knowledge too.
Know if your candidate has the level of knowledge required to operate in your business.

We assess curent levels of competence by 'test driving' your candidates in a simulated business environment.
Your candidate may have all the potential to perform, but how does their competence stack up now?
Our in-tray exercises are delivered virtually which saves you in travel and time expenses.
