The failure to recruit the right candidates can cost your company a fortune in time and money. The same applies for selecting staff for promotion. If recruits or staff are not motivated, engaged or committed, the likelihood is that your organization will suffer. This book gives you the guidance, tools and techniques to help determine the best candidates for the job. A Practical Guide to Assessment Centres and Selection Methods provides you with the right tools to gain a fully rounded picture of candidates, be they new recruits or prospects for promotion. In two parts, the book shows you how to create market-standard assessment and development centre methods in your organisation. It also provides a range of easy-to-implement assessment exercises, giving you practical advice on how to use them for best results. Part 1 shows you to understand key staff competencies and how to develop internal structures that will allow you to develop a "Competence Framework". It describes how to design and run an assessment centre which works for both the employer and the candidate. It reveals what makes a top-class assessor and describes the role of psychometric instruments in selection. Finally, it presents practical advice on how to adapt and devise your own staff selection activities for revealing the most suitable candidates, using the tools given in Part 2. Part 2 is particularly valuable. It delivers a wide range of different assessment activities designed specifically to determine key strengths and weaknesses of potential candidates. These activities include: * a range of role-play activities. These will help you assess a number of typical issues including performance feedback, dealing with disputes and how to influence without formal authority. * "In Tray" activities designed to reveal how candidates prioritise work. * Report writing and analysis activities designed to reveal how participants use data and information. . * Open-ended group decision-making activities. These use role play in a variety of typical business situations, followed by an analytical phase to reveal how participants may have changed their views during the course of the exercise. * Physical task group activities designed to be more relaxing and enabling the assessor to determine how candidates behave when they are more relaxed and less formal * Mental task group activities which help participants understand how plan, organise, adapt, influence and communicate * Supplementary group activities designed to act as a reserve should other exercises become "over-exposed" or if there is a need to regularly run several group activities with a nominated leader A Practical Guide to Assessment Centres and Selection Methods provides you with a robust, rounded way to measure candidate competency in recruitment or in assessing for promotion. A FREE CD reproduces all the exercises contained in the book so that you can print them individually whenever you need.

Before January 2012, the Ministry generally booked interpretation services directly with individual interpreters, many of whom were listed on the National Register of Public Service Interpreters (NRPSI). This approach was administratively inefficient and the Ministry decided to set up a new centralised procurement system. The Ministry awarded the contract to a company, ALS, that was clearly incapable of delivering. Despite having been warned that ALS was too small to shoulder a contract worth more than £1 million, it went ahead and handed them an annual £42 million national contract. The Ministry did not understand its own basic requirements and ignored the views of interpreters, who had serious concerns about the contract. Capita took over ALS in late 2011. The Ministry needed access to 1,200 interpreters when the contract went live but the company had only 280 properly assessed interpreters willing to work for it. The Ministry, though, still decided to go live nationally in one go. Many of the 'interpreters' it thought were available had simply registered an interest on the company's website and had been subject to no official checks. As a result, the company was able to meet only 58% of bookings causing a sharp rise in delayed, postponed and abandoned trials; individuals being kept on remand solely because no interpreter was available; and the quality of interpreters has at times been appalling. However Capita has only been fined £2,200 to date for failing to meet the terms of the contract. Capita-ALS is now fulfilling more bookings, but it is still struggling

Research on the reliability and validity of assessment centers (ACs) has been ongoing for at least 50 years and continues to this day. The assessment center method is a technique or process that is used to assess individual performance and potential. One of the most heavily researched topics over the last 30 years has been the internal structure of AC ratings that assessors make on rating dimensions after the completion of each exercise. This volume, with contributions from experts from around the world, looks at Dimension-Based Assessment Centers, Task-Based Assessment Centers, and Mixed-Model Assessment Centers. All three perspectives are presented in different sections, and a summary of these diverse perspectives is given at the end of the book.
