Since the 1980 years, Germany has been using the Assessment Center (AC) in the field of personnel selection and development. In the meantime, candidate ACs are experiencing a veritable boom - and with them consultants and coaches. Because both sides, Company like job candidates, upgrade and develop more sophisticated procedures and strategies. Assessment Center

Sense and purpose of assessment centers

In search of the best candidate for a position - especially with managerial responsibility - Assessment Centers help HR managers to test and evaluate technical and social skills in stressful situations. Employees of companies from different departments or external consultants are used as accessors.

After all, 27 from 30 DAX companies believe in this process and apply it despite the high time and financial expenses. Uniformity, intercompany quality standards are ensured by the Assessment Center eV; there are also reservations and critical voices about the meaning of assessment centers.

Money printing machine or applicant nightmare?

What many consultancies and coaches have a license to print money is a regular fear for many job seekers. They are scrutinized at least for one or more days, individual interviews and group discussions have to be held, roll games and postal basket exercises have to be completed.

It is no wonder, then, that according to studies, every fourth job seeker can be deterred by this selection process so that he does not even apply. And many who want to face the situation can be prepared especially by coaches.

Can the results be manipulated?

Despite all attempts to develop objective criteria for the assessment of applicants remains a reproach: Many critics complain about the manipulability of the results by the subjects.

This is because the questions of the interviews almost always reveal the character character- istics to which their answers are inferred, and which are positively assessed for the (leadership) position. In addition, experts are in doubt as to whether the strong concentration on the personality of the subjects actually permits certain conclusions to be drawn about their leadership qualities.

Train or read?

Whatever the assessment center is designed for, the focus is always on social behavior, concentration, professional and general knowledge as well as problem solving competence. Points can help you with initiative and creativity, the right mix of planning, control and flexibility; just as crucial are decision-making skills, your behavior in stress situations and your ability to communicate.

An extensive list of requirements - one thing makes them clear: it may be helpful for each application phase; but if you want to prepare yourself for an AC, you will not be able to read the guidebooks because hardly one of the qualities you are looking for can be read.

    In our AC coaching practice - we've been coaching for 20 years! - We even often experience that the department head or division manager sends an employee to us because the first AC went wrong and the second AC must now work.

    We then coach on behalf of the specialist department so that the HR experts from the HR department in the AC are satisfied with the performance shown - e.g. in the employee interview - and then the normal work in the specialist department can continue ;-)
