Assessment Centres

Research consistently shows that the quality of an organisation’s people, and the way they work together are the biggest influencers driving success and performance.

Most organisation’s still recruit their staff based on basic techniques like CV’s, unstructured interviews and references.

A Hudson Assessment Centre will allow you to concentrate efforts where the likelihood of hiring the right fit is greatest, making for a more intelligent use of time and money. The term refers to the use of a range of assessment activities to obtain an objective, well-rounded evaluation of one or more candidates’ ability and motivation to perform in a role. Using an Assessment Centre also helps align company goals and values.

When to use an Assessent Centre
