Last month, we were introduced to the first of three questions one should consider asking all prospective employees – but especially those who will hold more senior roles. To recap: this technique is not meant to replace any formal assessment/s, and is merely a “slice of the pie” when it comes to assessing a prospective candidate for a role. In fact “Holistan” was derived from the word holistic because it is our ambition to offer, as far as possible, a holistic ‘picture’ of your candidate – and this can only be done when a decision is based on the global perspective; that is, the candidate’s qualifications, experience, reference checks, their impression during the interview process, performance on skills based assessment, as well as psychometric assessments (and other criterions which maybe valuable to you – such as AA rating, criminal record checks, etc.).
Our contributors collectively boast a wealth of experience in assessments, HR, organisational development, change management and more!
