Australian Government: Department of Human Services
The department collaborated with our channel partner Chandler
Macleod to deliver end to end recruitment and assessment
services to select graduates likely to be future leaders.
With just under 3,000 applicants, the Department wanted to ensure that the recruitment process was rigorus and cost effective.
Chandler Macleod introduced our assessment as part of the initial screening process and provided training on how to use the tool.
Upfront analysis was carried out to determine what good looks like for the Department. By conducting stakeholder workshops and interviews, as well as asking current employees to complete the assessment, we were able to determine what personality and cognitive traits made a successful graduate.
This profile was then used to benchmark and screen the 3,000 applicants.
As well as 43% reduction in assessment costs, the Department also benefited from having behavioural assessment data at earlier stages of
the recruitment process. In the previous year, this information was only gleaned prior to assessment centres but having the data earlier on provided greater predictive validity at this stage.
