Focus today on tomorrow’s key people

  • How do I identify talents within our company?
  • Which talents do I need in the future?

Most employees are competent – but not everyone has the talent to take over a key position. In order to identify these talents and develop them accordingly, you need a precise picture: What are the candidate´s potentials, what are his or her limits?

Develop employees with a system

Looking at previous performance is not sufficient here. Especially in times of dynamic changes you need to know the future requirements and if the candidate can measure up to them. Difficult and sensitive  decisions need to be made. The outside perspective of an independent expert and an objective approach help to make these decisions comprehensible.

  • How can we systematically develop employees?
  • How can we sustainably ensure our staffing requirements?

Talent Management does not only aim at candidates with high potential. In the light of the demographic development and “war for talents” it is inevitable to look at all employees‘ potential and develop them systematically. Therefore, organizations need to install talent management as a systematic process. How do you do that? It‘s easier than you think! Have a look at an example from healthcare under „Talent Management“.

We offer consulting and practical solutions for the following topics:

Our assessment approach precisio® potential diagnosis is a licensed diagnostic tool  that measures and evaluates competencies and potential of the candidate. It has been repeatedly validated in various scientific studies. With our abundant experience in customizing and conducting, we ensure a highly professional service to both, employer and candidate. In the customizing phase we define the criteria and develop realistic simulations based on the critical incidents technique.

precisio® can be set up as individual or group assessment (assessment center, development center). The candidates go trough a multimodal process with our experienced consultants, which results in a comprehensive report with precise conclusions and recommendations. This neutral and objective expertise provides you with a sound basis for your personnel decisions in placement and development.

The flexibility of our precisio® potential diagnosis approach allows also the conduction of group assessments. An Assessment Center helps to choose a talented employee for a certain vacancy from a group of several candidates. Often, leaders from the company participate as observers.

Together we define criteria and requirements based on the critical incident technique and develop realistic simulations. We also train your leaders to be assessors during the assessment center. Our service comprises the complete administration and facilitation of the assessment center, including the assessors‘ conference. Furthermore, we write the reports for every candidate and also give feedback to the candidates if requested.

A development center is especially suitable for a talent or potential candidate program that various internal candidates have applied for. The approach is similar to an assessment center. However, the objectives are not only to select the appropriate candidates but additionally to identify the potentials and areas of improvements that the candidates should develop in the talent program.

The additional advantage of a precisio® potential audit lies in the group perspective in addition to the individual perspective. This provides you not only with precise results for every candidate, but also a condensed overview on the strengths and improvement potentials of the target group as a whole. This allows you to take sound personnel decisions on the invidual level and also to derive conclusions and recommendations for the complete group.

We have extensive experience in potential audits, especially for field service teams and management levels.

Organizations need to install talent management as a systematic process. Please find a concrete example from the health sector.
