EXECUTIVE ASSESSMENT
The key to establishing a good fit between a new executive and employer is validated executive assessment. Too often, companies hire for technical expertise and fire for behavioral issues. To ensure long-term retention and a more productive working environment, executive assessment should include an evaluation of behavioral and personality issues, and a look at how the candidate’s working style fits within a company’s unique culture.

The ultimate objective of executive assessment is to give the hiring company insight into how well a candidate will be able to contribute to the company. Gaining this insight requires assessment tools that take into account company culture, job requirements, working environment and other factors that go beyond the technical specifications of the job.

Wyckoff Consulting has turned the old model for executive search upside down. Instead of focusing solely on technical attributes, we combine behavioral assessments with our technical screening to ensure that candidates possess both the skill set and the personality to gel with your company. Many firms use generic assessment tools that have no correlation to company-specific success profiles. Wyckoff Consulting, on the other hand, uses an assessment method based on your company values and overall business culture. In fact, the first step of our proprietary Wyckoff Executive Search Tools (WEST) involves a job and culture analysis to better understand what drives the success of your executive team. Once we identify those characteristics, we create an assessment process that helps us match the right executives with your particular business environment.

Based on more than 30 years of executive assessment research and analysis, the WEST process includes objective judgment measures, a consistent scale for rating candidates through multiple contacts, and a multi-faceted approach that uses a range of criteria. We integrate technical data with behavioral interviews conducted by Ph.D.-level industrial/organizational psychologists. Combining all these assessment tools, we can better identify executives who will make significant, lasting contributions to your company.
