MOST ASSESSMENT PROVIDERS vs CLG
MOST PROVIDERS
CLG'S APPROACH
Assessment Speed Slower than Business
  • Leaving firm exposed to possible loss of candidate to other opportunities
Execution at Speed of Business
  • 24-hour turnaround in most cases
Often Remotely
  • Missing 80% of communication that occurs through non-verbals
  • Exposing firm to decision making based on incomplete data
On-Site Face to Face
  • Capture Overlooked Data: Capture the 80% of data shown via candidates’ nonverbal behavior
  • Dual Assessors : Teams of two expert assessors for each assessment. Ensure accuracy and complete data and insight capture
  • Where You Need Us : Teams in New York, Chicago, London and San Francisco
  • Rating Consistency: Teams review each other's data and recommendations to ensure inter-team consistency of recommendations 
  • Video Available for decision makers’ review
Only Interview as Data Point
  • Lacking straight-forward and proven assessment instruments (e.g. Big Five)
  • Lacking data from others who know the candidate
  • Exposing firm to decision making based on incomplete AND one-dimensional data
Assessment Performance Equation
  • Interview + assessment instruments + Interviews with people who know candidate
  • = More rigorous results that predict higher levels of success
A Rubber Stamp
  • Not adding new insights around candidate, his fit with the team, or probability of success in the role
  • Exposing firm to making the wrong decision with financial fallout
Comprehensive
  • Our comprehensive suite of assessments yields more robust, insightful and predictive data and recommendations
