Talent Measurement

Differences in peoples' performance impact on the bottom line

Strong Performers

Strong performers increase revenue and profit by developing effective ideas and strategies, winning support for them, and inspiring others to get them implemented. They cut through bureaucracy and complexity, bring ideas to market quickly, meet commitments, and reduce costs.

Weak Performers

Weak or marginal performers hurt your bottom line by making poor decisions, working inefficiently, failing to get other's support and being slow to change. They are frequently also slow learners.

Talent Measurement

Assessment is the process of evaluating whether an individual has the capabilities to be a strong performer in a particular role, both now and in the future. It provides the most accurate information possible for making decisions about people's readiness and potential and for driving their development.

A well-designed process consists of a combination of measures that provide organisations with rich and reliable information which enables them to make accurate and effective decisions.

The Talent Institute has an eclectic approach to assessment and subscribes to use of tests and measures sourced from a range of different suppliers.

We assess candidates in a given context against:

  • Job-specific delivery accountabilities
  • Operational and strategic demands of a particular job role
  • Competencies required for effective performance

Our approach is based on a holistic view of candidates that focuses on:

  • What they can do (competence)
  • What they have done (experience)
  • What they know (knowledge)
  • Who they are (attributes)

Our single biggest value lies in our ability to interpret composite assessment data in the context of business risk. Our dash board reports contain comprehensive risk analyses and clear recommendations.

The information can be used in both a selection and a development context.
