The immersive world of virtual reality lends itself perfectly to assessment centres. By its very nature, Virtual Reality simulations engage the senses and give the impression of real world depth. Candidates immersed in this environment show their authentic, natural and intuitive reactions to scenarios, making it very easy for employers to assess their reactions, behaviours and performance. This experiential approach enables accelerated understanding of candidates’ aptitude and fit to a company culture and role.
With the Virtual Reality Leadership Lab, Biz Group can accelerate assessments with simulations that provide analytics and reports about participants performance.
Gooroo prides itself on facilitating transformation. The Gooroo technology is built to highlight people’s natural thinking patterns as well as their ability to adapt to change, their entrepreneurial spirit and ability to take advantage of uncertainly.
The process of thinking in any person is tested, refined and perfected over time, helping carve out paths in their brains to apply solutions to problems rapidly. This insight into how people think helps companies evaluate candidates and employees—to understand their innate capabilities—but also how best to engage with them in the workplace.
Biz Group uses the Cubiks psychometric tools to help organisations get insights into candidates’ personality traits, work behaviours and predict their performance as well as their fit with the company culture.
The Cubiks tools give us in-depth insights to underpin critical talent decisions and ensure our clients hire the right people. Here are some of the benefits of using Cubiks assessment tools:
• Quickly identify high potential candidates and top performers.
• Lower your recruiting costs by spending less time screening applicants.
• Identify areas for further coaching and development, resulting in higher employee engagement and retention.
When hiring talent, it is incredibly hard to filter out ‘diminishers’ but it is incredibly important to do so. A diminisher drains intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them and their need to always be the smartest one in the room kills ideas, productivity and diminishes the talent and commitment of their teammates. If the candidate with great skills you hired happens to be a diminisher, they will most likely jeopardise the productivity of their team members.
With the Multipliers 360 Assessment you can assess someone’s propensity to be a diminisher or a multiplier. Having visibility of whether that candidate will be a real team player and multiply their team members’ ideas, confidence and ability to collaborate productively is just as important as their own skill sets and performance.

‘'A company should limit its growth based on its ability to attract enough of the right people".—Jim Collins
The connection between hiring the right people and business success is supported by countless studies but it remains a competitive advantage that far too many organisations don’t understand. The complexity comes from the fact that it is not about hiring the right skillsets—because skills can be taught—but rather about hiring the right mindset, personality, energy and integrity. And if you get that right, these ‘A players’ will propel your company to the greatest heights.
It is very difficult to effectively measure and assess these characteristics in candidates, and for the longest time, HR Managers relied on their feelings about someone. As valuable as that can be, the latest technologies are taking the guess work out of hiring the right people for your company. From virtual reality to artificial intelligence and applied neuroscience, Biz Group has an entire selection of assessment centre options to choose from that will ensure you identify and provide your people the development opportunities they deserve.
The number of millennial employees is on the rise and by 2020, they will make up over half of the United State's total workforce. Why is this important? Not only do millenials have different expectations of their employers, they also have different work habits and they are consequently disrupting the traditional workplace. But instead of worrying about how to manage millenials, its time to start thinking about how to elevate them into great leaders and help them transition into leaders who can, in turn, effectively manage others. Read our whitepaper to discover how to manage the challenges of creating the new Millenial Managers
