We know the value of informed decision making.
Leadership assessments are a core aspect of our recruitment offering. Designed to integrate seamlessly into recruitment processes for businesses of all sizes, our leadership assessments allow you to look beyond education and experience to determine a candidate's potential fit for a role or business now and in the future. The insights we gather are also measured against our database of 2,000+ purpose-led professionals; the largest of its kind for health, safety and sustainability-related functions.
What's In It For Candidates?
When we integrate our leadership assessments into recruitment, candidates benefit from valuable insight into their strength and development areas via a one-on-one feedback session with one of our development coaches.
What's In It For Hiring Managers?
Our leadership assessments help decrease the risks associated with hiring by providing transparent, objective and unbiased insight into prospective candidates' potential for success in a role and organization.
How Does It
Upon completion of an online questionnaire, our development coaches will generate an in-depth leadership report and consult with both parties on areas of the report to discuss further during final stage interviews.
The feedback provided from the assessment process run by Acre Frameworks has enabled Keepmoat to fully analyse and understand the development needs of its senior SHEQ team. This is invaluable to Keepmoat as although the managers have the right technical skills, there is a need for them to have stronger management and leadership skills as their roles evolve in a growing business.
Working with Acre on a recent recruitment process has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. They really invested the time to get to know me as a candidate, to understand my interests and motivations and ensure I was matched to the role.
This meant that interviews were constructive because there was already a strong interest on both sides. An unexpected bonus has been two-hours of onboarding coaching. It’s been great to have that time to reflect and have a conversation about what comes next and what’s important to me as I take on this new challenge.
Acre has been incredibly supportive and it's been a great experience.
Acre's leadership assessment and coaching sessions brought me a wealth of meaningful insight. During the recruitment process, Josh made me aware of my dominant personality traits and how those traits may lead to positive or negative leadership behaviors. Connecting these dots helped me understand which behaviors have led to success in my career, but also where I have been holding myself back.
During the two subsequent coaching sessions with Ed, I was able to use these insights to create well-defined, concrete goals for my new role. I feel better equipped to pursue these goals with a newfound self-awareness of my strengths and weaknesses, because Acre provided guidance that was specifically tailored to me.
Last year I worked with Acre to find a new role and as part of the process, I completed a leadership assessment and coaching program. It was amazing to get this added value as part of the process and shows Acre’s commitment to developing and growing talent. The assessment allowed me and my new employer to really understand my strengths and development areas through insight. It was great to ensure I was aligned to the role and wider organisation, culture and values which is critical in the purpose and sustainability field.
A few months into my role I had a follow-up coaching session and it was really beneficial to stop, reflect and discuss my personal development. This service was a great addition to the recruitment process and I think very beneficial for all involved.
I secured my dream job through Acre, who supported me throughout the entire process from the first interview to negotiating my contract.
I was particularly impressed with the Leadership Competency assessment ahead of the final interview, and I was similarly impressed with the post-offer coaching sessions.
This involved helping me learn from experiences in previous roles and how to lever this learning to formulate a clear strategy for starting my new role.
The Acre Frameworks Dashboard
Our leadership assessments are powered by our online data analytics platform: The Acre Frameworks Dashboard.
We use the Dashboard to present objective data about candidates' strengths and development needs to determine their fit for a specific role or company.
Why Should You Use Acre Frameworks' Leadership Assessments?
Soft skills are harder to measure than technical skills due to their subjective nature. This is made more challenging by the emphasis on technical competence when transitioning from traditional, academic routes into safety and sustainability-related professions.
With this in mind, we partnered with safety and sustainability professionals, for safety and sustainability professionals to address this skill gap head-on.
We co-created a market-leading competency framework in collaboration with 100+ industry leaders to determine the key skills required for current and future leaders to disrupt traditional thinking and deliver measurable impact. Available at two levels, our framework assesses against the following competencies:
For junior to pre-management level professionals
Flexible to Change
Planning & Organising
For management to executive level professionals
Driving Change Through Others
Innovation & Courage
Leads High Performing Teams
Legacy & Impact
Strategy Development & Delivery
