The certified tasks we use in our assessments have undergone scientific peer review. Conclusions are always formed on the basis of multiple methods. The structured interview utilizes a coaching approach and focuses on the candidate’s experiences. The assessments are carried out by Avila’s Assessment Psychologists, who are certified in the methods used.

Hiring & Onboarding

Recommendation and onboarding compass

Avila’s assessment psychologist always gives a clear recommendation about candidate’s suitability, that gives support to hiring manager’s decision-making. Our assessment gives a good starting point for cooperation between the client and the candidate by providing an on-boarding compass to the beginning of the employment relationship. The hiring manager receives concrete tips on how to onboard and lead the new employee at the beginning of the collaboration.

Candidate experience & selection

Candidate experience at the heart of our operations

In the psychological assessment, candidates will be able to reflect and identify their own strengths and development goals. The assessment provides tangible benefits and helps candidates to understand their own operating methods and practices at work, which will be useful at the beginning of the new employment relationship. The content of the assessment report can also help in understanding a possible negative recruitment decision.
