Candidate Assessment

Hire right – the first time.

When management considers final candidates for key positions, A Stefan, Fraser & Associates’ assessment adds value to the decision making.

Our analysis of candidates is intensive and in depth and provides practical insight that the hiring team can use to make decisions. We start by working with hiring managers to gain clear understanding of the nature, requirements and context of the specific job for which the candidate is being considered. Our consultants then meet with the candidate(s) to obtain background interview information and conduct job-related psychological testing. Results of the assessment are reported to management.

The resulting picture of candidates' management and work styles provides key information. Strengths can be matched to the job's key performance requirements. Shortcomings can be matched with the resources available to support and develop the selected person.

Successful candidates receive feedback that is focused on job success. Development-oriented counselling is also provided to unsuccessful candidates. Thus, they regard the experience as positive and one from which they can grow, even though they were not appointed.
