European Talent Validation Project
Tools used: Blueprint, Talent Fit and Strengths Questionnaire
BeTalent were invited by Visa Europe to define and develop a High Potential Talent Identification and Assessment process. Over 1,500 employees were invited to take part in a 180 process using the BeTalent Talent Fit tool. A total of 429 employees from Visa Europe fully participated in the process. 62 individuals were identified as having potential and were selected to take part in the High Potential Assessment event. The assessment event was designed to incorporate a combination of assessment and development activities, challenging individuals and creating stretch in order to identify strengths and developments, along with step-up potential indications. The delegates completed the Strengths questionnaire in order to better understand their personal Strengths. From this, the team generated personal development reports and the delegates were offered the opportunity for a feedback and coaching meeting in order to progress their development planning. This process was automated through the BeTalent online platform and talent assessment processes were used to create an automated platform that could be updated as new performance and potential data is gathered.
Result: “The talent days have been excellent. The questions posed by Chris King and your expert team and the opportunity to reflect and consider how they behave and what their strengths are. I have also received glowing feedback from candidates in terms of how well organised the days have been in the lead up and during the assessment so please ensure your team know this”.
