If your employer has provided you with Career Transition Support through Gallagher, click here to get started.
Recruitment, leadership development, and career transition are simultaneously simple and complex. Simple because of the process, complex because human beings are emotional creatures with a spectrum of personal motivations.
To make decisions about your talent, you must understand who they are. Many organizations rely on biased opinions of managers to identify and develop their talent, which leads to mistakes and wasted resources.
At Gallagher, we offer Assessment through SuccessFinder because it provides an unbiased, high-definition picture of an individual’s competencies, preferences, motivators, and potential. We believe it’s the best tool for making smart talent decisions that results in a complete profile void of human bias.
Participants complete a cloud-based assessment available 24/7.
SuccessFinder generates a high-definition profile report.
Participants are debriefed by a certified Optimum Talent consultant.
Organizations can receive a report with aggregated data.
SuccessFinder uses four decades of research and development to predict career satisfaction and success based on two discriminating factors: human behaviours and competencies.
Behaviours and competencies are the key differentiators in performance. High performers share a common subset of behaviors and competencies that they are extremely adept at using. SuccessFinder compares an individual’s personal profile with thousands of high-performing profiles to predict success in a role with 85% or higher accuracy.
It’s also the only career assessment to measure 85 statistically distinct behavioural scales (few other tests measure more than 30), and 35 specific career themes (few other measure more than 10) – all of which interface with 1,500 occupational titles (few measure more than 200) and 500+ career success benchmarks.
Unlike other assessment tools, SuccessFinder can be used for individuals at all levels of an organization.
Because of its comprehensive approach to behavioural assessment, SuccessFinder is just as effective in determining the potential success rate of a newly hired CEO as it is for an entry-level employee.
This allows your organization to remain consistent across geographies, employees, and levels of your organization by offering a single, effective solution that can be used as the foundation for decisions regarding your talents’ advancement, development, and potential.
Feedback is an essential element of personal growth and development. By engaging in a 360° Assessment, leaders can access a broad range of perspectives to increase self-awareness and boost performance for themselves, their team, and the organization.
At Optimum Talent, we have over 15 years of experience designing and delivering assessment solutions. By targeting a limited number of key competencies, we gather the most important data points and provide feedback in a constructive and strategic manner to help leaders reach their full potential.
