The OP Practice can assist you to assess and select new talent for your business...

For all businesses, an increase in demand generally means hiring more staff to help meet it, often at short notice. It can also mean there’s little time to assess applicants, or develop current employees. Making wrong selection decisions can be costly, and when we add the time spent having to read through a large stack of CVs, it doubles. We provide a boutique of services to help organisations to make effective selection decisions - assess and select highly suited and matched candidates to fill their vacant roles.  

Our consultants have the psychological/business knowledge and resources to ensure you recruit the right person for the job.  So, if you can't find the right staff, don't worry -call us and we'll do the job for you.

 

Assessments/Test/Exercises

We provide a range of assessment tools and techniques designed to identify potential and capability in job applicants or current job holders.  The OP Practice assessments and exercises are easy to use and purchase. We employ a rigorous and trialled approach to assessment design. Our assessments/tests/exercises are based on comprehensive job analysis, and psychometric principles are adopted from first design. They assess several competencies that have been identified as core to effective performance in various roles. This provides our clients with the level of confidence they require to trust that the assessments/tests/exercises have clear links to successful job performance.

 

Our commitment to continuous programme of development and evaluation means that our clients are able to make the best decisions about souring the best-suited candidate for a role or development opportunity with confidence in the validity, reliability and fairness of the tests they are using.

To use our tools you will need to register with us (free of charge). We ask that you have either Test User Occupational: Ability or Personality certification verified by the British Psychological Society. (We provide this certification too.)
