Trainee selection within a city council
Our client requires an appropriate e-tray exercise for the selection of trainees involved in dual courses of study. The aim is to supplement the recruitment process by a standardised and objective method which requires minimal effort in terms of evaluation. The training management regards it as particularly important to reliably test analytical skills and conscientiousness in a realistic setting.
Based on types of tasks which have already been evaluated, CREWS & CAPTAINS GmbH is developing an individual mailbox for the city council, which tests analytical skills and a systematic-accurate way of working. The content of the e-mails is adapted to a cover story which is based around the job setting of the customer. In addition to the classic elements of the e-tray exercise, it also includes tasks related to spelling and mathematics, which are integrated into the cover story.
E-tray exercise for the selection of experts in an insurance company
One insurance company already uses a mailbox designed by us in an assessment centre to select management staff. As part of the specialist career a similar e-tray exercise is now needed for the target group "experts". Also, we receive the assignment to evaluate the e-tray exercise that is currently in use for management staff and update it on the basis of the newly introduced competency model.
As a result of the evaluation, the tested criteria as well as the tasks are fine-tuned and adjusted to the new competency model. The updated e-tray exercise also serves as a basis for the new e-tray exercise for the selection of experts. As far as the content is concerned, we transferred the cover story that is based on the insurance industry. However, the management context was replaced by tasks from project management. In this very economical way, a second e-tray exercise was created for the selection process within the specialist career.
E-tray exercise for the selection of management staff in the electronics industry
At an exhibition, we get into a conversation with a potential customer who is looking for a supplementary task for an assessment centre for the selection of management staff. This task is to fill a temporary gap during which the candidates are not observed. The decision is made in favour of the e-tray exercise since this task is more practical and diverse than an intelligence test. The target group of the selection process are the group leaders from different areas of the company.
We only receive a few prerequisites from our customer, a large company in the field of electric technology. The analytical abilities as well as the results orientation of the participants are to be tested. In addition, the HR department provides us with four areas of responsibility including "personnel schedule planning" and "customer contact" that are to be considered in the design of the content. Based on these prerequisites we designed a cover story that is based on the company context and consists of interrelated tasks from all four areas.
