It’s not easy to select, develop and retain top talent. Assessments are a powerful tool to support your talent management strategy. At Vertical Bridge, our consultants have expertise in conducting a broad range of assessments; from looking at the workplace as a whole e.g. employee engagement, employee wellbeing and unresolved conflict to assessing leadership capabilities, emotional intelligence and behavioural styles.

Our clients have used leadership and employee assessments for recruiting top talent, developing and retaining employees and for identifying and training leaders for the future.  In addition, assessment tools can help organizations with performance management, employee development and succession planning.

Workplace Assessments

Many employers would like to learn more about what it takes to create an engaging workplace, where employees perform their best work and utilize their strengths. Research has shown that employee engagement can lead to increased performance and therefore increased revenue and retention.

Our consultants have experience in creating surveys to assess:

  • employee engagement
  • employee well-being
  • team effectiveness
  • cultural assessment

Our experience has been that employees are more likely to share their thoughts and opinions in a survey that is administered by an external provider. We will work with you to research and select the right tool for your business.

Leadership Assessments

We all know that leadership requires more than a high IQ. Leadership and emotional intelligence assessment tools can help your organization to identify future leaders and provide valuable feedback to current leaders and employees to enable them to develop skills and become more effective in their roles.

We work with clients to design a tool that is specific to the needs of the organization, utilize existing 360 feedback tools, and/or administer validated and reliable assessment tools.

Assessment Tools Available:

We have consultants who are experienced and certified in many assessment tools.  Our consultants will work with you to select the right tool for your needs, and if needed, to provide workshops or one-on-one coaching to support the assessment.
