Seminar: The Sense and Non-Sense of Assessments

Written by advance on . Posted in Uncategorized

The sense and nonsense of assessments

Within Aruban organizations, assessments have long been used in the selection of external candidates when filling a vacancy. In recent years there has also been a positive trend in assessing internal candidates as a part of the growth and development process within their company. It is safe to say that assessments have become an increasingly popular tool within the HR hiring  and career development process.

However, the use of the assessment tool is sometimes applied less effectively or even unnecessarily and valuable insights and recommendations concerning a candidate remain unused. Incorrect  use of the assessment tool is likely to lead  to frustration from either candidate or the organization.


During this short seminar, we would like to share with you assessments “best practices” based on 15 years of acquired knowledge and experience within a wide variety of Aruban organizations (profit and non-profit). In particular, we will focus on assessments for management and leadership positions.

By attending this seminar, Managers and HR professionals will  gain valuable insights, enabling them  to be more effective when applying assessments in  the hiring and career development processes. As an employer, you should be the ‘owner` of the assessment tool, being able to manage it or tailor it to the needs of your organization. The valuable  information that you will receive during this seminar  will make you  feel more in the `driver seat’ when using assessments for hiring, career development or promotions decisions.

The speakers at this seminar will be Mrs. Marie-Anne Móron, psychologist and ADVANCE business partner, and Mr. Jan Noordzij, Managing Director of ADVANCE.

What you will learn in this interactive workshop
• The role that an assessment plays in the candidate selection or career development process;
• How  American or European assessments norms translate into the Aruban situation;
• Education and degrees do not always translate into an equal analytical work pace and  performance;
• To what extent an organization can help candidates develop their assessed leadership skills.

We are delighted to invite you to join us at the end of this seminar for drinks and hors d’oeuvre from 5pm to 6.30pm

Date and Time:
Wednesday October 4th, 2017 from 3:00 to 5:00, followed by
