Potential Assessment

Potential assessment can be used to identify the strengths, skills and motivation of an organisation’s employees to support career path planning and continuous development.

The potential assessment identifies the development and growth potential of employees

Employee potential assessment serves as a tool for organisational growth and development. The survey helps to identify employees’ skills, areas for development and their potential as a manager, among other things. It helps to understand the career paths that employees can take within the organisation in the short and long term.

Assessment & Methodology

Reliable assessment methods

Potential assessment is a large-scale personal assessment. It uses similar assessment methods to those used in recruitment aptitude assessments, but here the psychologist’s interview focuses more comprehensively on the participant’s strengths, learning opportunities and areas for development than in a job-specific aptitude assessment. The certified assessment tasks we use have undergone scientific peer review and conclusions are always drawn from multiple methods. Assessments are conducted by certified psychologists.

Development & Change situations

Comprehensive assessment framework

Typically, potential assessments are used for career path planning, to assess managerial and leadership skills, and to assess the development needs of employees. Potential assessment also adds value in situations of organisational change, such as company reorganisations or acquisitions and the subsequent orientation period.

Mentoring & Growth

Continuous employee development

Potential assessment can be used to mentor an individual, such as a promising employee or new recruit, and to identify growth opportunities. It can also be carried out on a team basis or as part of a wider staff development programme. For the employee, it helps to identify their own strengths and areas for development and to plan their career path more accurately.
