New platform supports paperless assessment and development centres

A web-based platform which enables recruiters to plan, create, implement and manage more efficient, paperless assessment and development centres is now available from cut-e, the international assessment specialist.

Company Profile

cut-e

Called enAC, the platform automates the process of planning and managing assessment or development centres. It enables recruiters to create individual and group exercises, using customised content based on the requirements of specific roles. 

Using tablets, observers are able to easily rate participants and take paperless notes. The platform then consolidates all the collected behavioural observations, comments, ratings and test scores for each participant and creates an instantly-available competency-based report, highlighting their strengths and development needs, with relevant interview questions and notes for structured feedback sessions. 

“Assessment and development centres play an important role in identifying suitable individuals but typically they involve bundles of files, papers, observation sheets and physical reports,” said Dr Achim Preuss, Chief Technology Officer at cut-e. “With a paperless process, you can do it all online. enAC provides the content expertise that allows recruiters to quickly organise and deliver tailored, professional assessment and development centres. It speeds up the entire process, enabling far more efficient administration and a seamless participant and assessor experience, all of which helps to differentiate your employer brand.” 

Developed by Papilio AG, a Swiss management consultancy, enAC is a secure and easy-to-use platform which can be integrated into any applicant tracking system. Online assessments from cut-e can be included in the process, to assess your organisation’s competencies or the predefined role competencies that are included in the enAC system. 

The platform provides behavioural indicators, suggested role plays, analysis exercises, development measures and competency-based interview questions that are suitable for a range of different roles. These include graduate; first-line, middle and senior manager; project manager; sales representative; service staff and commercial and technical specialist positions. 

“With paperless assessment and development centres, the participants complete all of the assessments and exercises via a tablet device,” said Dr Preuss. “Assessors also use a tablet to access relevant candidate information and to enter their ratings, comments and notes directly into the system. This means they don’t have to transcribe their handwritten notes later. Recruiters no longer have to print and collate assessment materials and they get instant access to all the participant information, scores, notes and reports in one place.” 

The enAC system can be customised to reflect the corporate branding, competencies, rating scales, processes and reporting preferences of any organisation. The system is available in English, French, German and Italian. 

Andrea Jones, Resourcing Business Partner for Early Careers at O2 Telefónica, said: “We have used cut-e’s paperless assessment centre enAC for many assessment centres in multiple business areas and are delighted with the results. enAC creates an engaging and stress-free process for assessors and candidates and allows us to make quality hiring decisions quicker.” 

Christopher Murphy, Volume Recruitment Manager at easyJet, said: “We have integrated cut-e’s paperless assessment centre into our selection process for both pilots and cabin crew. The simplicity of the scoring and validity of results allows us to select the very best talent in a seamless and impactful way.” 

Stuart Woods, Talent and Capability Manager for Early Careers at the Bank of Ireland, said: “enAC helps us to maximise objectivity at assessment centres, ensuring the focus is on behavioural fit and not background. It also ensures an innovative and straightforward experience for both assessors and candidates.”
