Talent assessment & selection

Get the insights you need to hire with confidence

When it comes to the long-term health and success of your organisation, finding the right people is one of the most important elements. A great hire is an instant asset, delivering benefits and performance your business can rely on long into the future.

But recruitment is a difficult process. You can often grapple with unconscious biases that lead to favouring people who resemble you, CVs that seem to tick all the boxes, candidates who interview well, or the age-old “gut feeling”.

If you don’t properly assess candidates before the hiring decision, you risk putting the wrong people in critical roles. If they stay, their under performance can ripple through your entire organisation, if they leave you are faced with going through the recruitment process again. Either way, it can be a costly mistake.

"Know how" is no equal for "want to"

Focusing on the “know how” is one way selection processes can fail. Concentrating on technical skills or experience only exposes the first layer of a candidate’s fit for the role.

What’s more, the necessary expertise required in today’s rapidly-moving workplace is frequently changing. Evaluations of current and past performance are soon outdated, and a future focus on whether the candidate “can do” and “wants to” perform in the role is the best approach to assess suitability.

A performance model to power your recruitment

When your recruitment needs to identify high performers, there are proven models to base your processes around. We’ve developed the “Hudson Performance Driver Model” that powers recruitment processes for hundreds of public and private organisations.

The model allows you to uncover much more than just technical expertise or what’s on an applicant’s CV. Exposing candidates to the assessment activities behind the Hudson Performance Driver Model gives you a comprehensive analysis of their strengths and suitability around the role you’re recruiting for. More importantly, it gives you the insights to make an informed hiring decision.

To identify the best applicants, we follow two important steps:

Step 1

PROFILE SUCCESS

Success profiles are a blueprint to identify top performers for your hiring. Examining the competencies, experience, personal attributes and other aspects, a success profile allows you to evaluate consistently and equitably. This minimises biases so you can review candidates with confidence and have greater clarity in decision-making.

Step 2

ASSESS TALENT

Whether you’re evaluating 2 candidates or 2,000, our assessment options give you deep insights into the “know how”, “can do” and “want to” of each applicant. With a customised range of approaches, such as psychometric assessments or online and face-to-face exercises, you’ll have the information you need to make winning recruitment decisions that serve your organisation for years to come.
