Launching our New Situational Strengths Test

Posted by: Celine Jacques & Alex Linley


Capp has always been a thought-leader in strengths-based recruitment. We see selection as a really critical process for our clients; the point at which the future make up of an organisation is decided.


Your brand, your performance, your very survival is dependent on those appointments and we feel privileged to be able to help our clients make effective, predictive and legally defensible decisions.


We understand the challenges facing recruiters and this year we have harnessed our innovation and thought leadership to bring you the latest in strengths-based recruitment, with a solution for online volume sifting for candidates based on their strengths – the Capp Situational Strengths Test.


This week sees the formal launch of the Situational Strengths Test, which is already being used by Ernst & Young and a major UK-based FMCG company as part of their strengths-based graduate recruitment processes, supported by Capp.


Over the next three weeks we will be posting a series of blogs all about the challenges of recruitment and how strengths-based recruitment, and the Situational Strengths Test in particular, are addressing these challenges.


Through these blogs, we will share our latest thinking around:


  • The current challenges faced by those attracting, assessing and selecting talent


  • The impact of our economic climate, and the changing profile of high volume roles


  • The need for innovation combined with exceptional science and rigour


  • The specific challenge of high volume applications, and the market and place for online sifting tools


  • The organisational outcomes and candidate benefits delivered by the Situational Strengths Test, our strengths-based sifting tool


  • The link between attraction, online sifting, further assessment and on-boarding


  • A look to the future in relation to what we all need to do better in order to spot talent more effectively and efficiently.


We hope you enjoy exploring this new frontier in strengths-based recruitment, and that you will be as excited and inspired as we are by the possibilities that this offers.


And by all means, if you can’t wait for the blog series, please check out the Situational Strengths Test website, which should answer many of the questions you may have.

    Is it possible to see a sample results report?

    Many thanks and good luck!

    • Hello Judy,

      Thank you for your comment, and well wishes!

      Candidates who take the Situational Strengths Test are given a score, which is reported back to the organisation. This score will align to a pass or fail status, which then dictates whether the candidate is successfully through to the next stage of the selection process, or not. Whilst candidates do not typically immediately see their ‘score’ themselves, there is the option for them to receive a developmental report on their performance in the test, if the organisation so wishes.

      On our new website at you can find an example Scenario question and possible answers, as well as more detail on how the test works. I hope this helps!

      Thank you again,
