Recruitment and Mobility Director- Pomona
Shape, AssessFirst’s personality questionnaire has quickly established itself as a comprehensive analysis of candidate profiles, strengths, weaknesses and detailed working styles in 12 key areas of working life, presented in a concise and extremely precise manner. Moreover, the training provided greatly facilitated the integration of the system by the Pomona teams.
We chose AssessFirst because Shape, their personality evalution system, is reliable, effective and easy to use everyday.
Another feature that is popular with recruiters is the possibility of comparing the profiles of each candidate to the criteria of desired behaviours, as well as being able to access lists of questions to ask during the interview, which delve deeper into particular aspects of candidate profiles.
AssessFirst’s innovative systems have enabled us to strengthen our appeal to candidates.
Now, every collaborator who hopes to change positions within the company can complete the Shape questionnaire, after which, the collaborator’s profile can be assessed next to all open positions, in order to better anticipate their potential for internal progress.
Using Shape has enabled us to strengthen the link between operational and executive employees, and demonstrate our expertise with our internal clients.
For Eric Mercier, the benefits of collaboration are four-fold. “Firstly, our decisions are more reliable. Decisions are also more objective as they are now fully supported. Inn this way, we have managed to ensure complete HR and operational vision. The link with operational employees has been greatly developed. Finally, we have been able to improve skills and have even more legitimacy with our managers, for whom we recruit every day.”
