The CIPD reports increased use of psychometrics both in recruitment and in selection for redundancy. (OK, selection for posts within the 'new structure' which if you don't get one may result in your redundancy) As part of our philosophy of supporting people to achieve their goals and helping to create confidence in candidates we are running a FREE workshop about how to overcome your fears of Assessment Centres.
This seminar is targeted at middle and senior managers and will use examples of tests exercises used in recruitment at that level, however much of the information is applicable to posts at other levels.
