Understanding capability & potential

Executive Assessment

When you’re dealing with top-level management positions, you want the very best in executive HR and recruitment services. Our HR Consultancy services help you aim higher, achieve greater results, and recruit and retain candidates who will drive your business forward. 

Our specialist HR Advisory practice at Cooper Fitch has developed exclusive, dynamic testing centres to assist your businesses in talent progression. Executive Assessments are a critical tool that helps companies get engaged in the talent selection process or to identify areas of strength and weakness with your existing teams and suggesting steps for improvement and development.

We design our assessment centres around you and your needs; we have the ability to feature panel interviews, bespoke competency-based interview tailored to your organisations’ key goals and values, online assessments, case studies and simulations, presentations and independent consultation.

Psychometric assessments with a focus on team leadership are also often used to identify high-potentials as part of the succession planning and “career progression into manager” positions. Quite often, these are applied to an internal pool of candidates but can also be very useful when seeking leaders. The benefits of such tools also assist in managing the integration of a new leader into an organisation.

Highly engaged teams show 21% greater profitability

Talent Management

Once you have the right people in your organisation, our talent management service helps you to retain these key personnel by ensuring they are fully aligned with your business’ vision. Our HR consulting services deliver crucial tactical processes including engagement and exit interviews and analysis and streamlining your strategy for retention best practices. By making sure your people are fully engaged with your business model from the moment they take up their role, you can drive efficiency and increase profitability. From workforce planning through to management structure and recruitment, our experts work with you to create a broad-ranging talent management strategy that aligns your team to give you a clear strategic advantage. Onboarding solutions keep you compliant with current employment legislation and help smooth the transition of new personnel into the organizational structure. The result is a team that feels more connected, engaged, and valued.
