volume sifting

Technology, Innovation and Your End-to-End Candidate Experience

Posted by: Celine Jacques

 

Earlier this week we shared more detail around the Situational Strengths Test, our new online volume sifting tool. So, here we are, combining our thought leadership in strengths with the eternal limit-pushing world of technology. How exciting!

 

On Tuesday evening, I attended a recruitment event in London, where practitioners discussed the likes of using LinkedIn for headhunting, and video interviewing. It was a fascinating session, and there was some great debate.

 

The combination and balance of technology, theoretical breakthroughs, rigour, fairness, legal defensibility, cost, and internal buy-in is what continues to make recruitment and selection an exciting and challenging area to work in.

 

Innovation and the use of technology is great for an early selection stage such as the volume sift of the Situational Strengths Test. It is important, though, for this to link with the rest of the candidate journey. So how does the Situational Strengths Test fit with our end-to-end process for strengths-based recruitment solutions? This is where the Strengths Selector comes in.

 

The Situational Strengths Test is the second step in Strengths Selector, Capp’s five steps to strengths-based recruitment, which also includes Strengths Attraction, Strengths Based Interview, Strengths Assessment Centres and Strengths On-boarding.

 

Recruitment is an end-to-end process, and your candidates experience some or all of this process with you, which is a direct experience of your organisation, brand and culture.

 

Ensuring that there is a consistent ‘feel’ and ‘message’ is key – recognising that each stage is great on its own is important, but really, the whole is a lot more than the sum of its parts. If a process feels disjointed, so will candidates’ experience of your organisation.

 

In next week’s blogs, we look at the broader recruitment journey through the lens of Capp’s Strengths Selector, incorporating the Situational Strengths Test, and share our latest insights.

 

We will discuss the challenges we see across different stages recruitment, and across different industry sectors, and show you how the five steps of strengths-based recruitment in the Strengths Selector are delivering value and making a difference to talent assessment and selection.

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.
