Frontline Manager Assessment Center Process
Define and communicate the purpose, plan, success metrics, and relative importance of the Frontline Manager Assessment Center Assessment to all key stakeholders.
- Schedule Assessment
New or transitioning new managers receive an email with a scheduling link to select a session that works for them. The system then automatically schedules behavioral psychologists who will be assessing each participant.
- Complete Frontline Manager Assessment Center Pre-work
Once scheduled, participants receive access to pre-work which includes instructions, psychometric tests, and background reading of the level- and role-specific job simulations and assignments for a day in the life in a fictitious organization.
- Conduct Virtual Simulation Assessment
In the people manager assessment center, frontline people managers are given 1-3 hours to respond to purposefully designed exercises and prompts including in-basket requests, e-mails, interactions, presentations, decisions, interviews, and other management challenges relevant to potential, new, inexperienced, and transitioning people managers.
- Receive Assessment Results
Certified professional assessors and smart technology score participants’ behaviors against research-backed and client aligned managerial competencies required for success in your unique workplace culture. Reports are customized to reflect client-specific competencies. Individual and group comparisons are available. One-on-one feedback is given by certified coaches to the leader and the participants.
- If Applicable, Start Development
Based on the assessment results, a customized individual development plan is created combined with daily leadership nudges to encourage practice, drive behavior changes, and tracks progress over time using AI to rapidly develop and improve participants chances for success.
