The Global Assessment Trends Report is an annual indicator of assessment practices, giving HR professionals a comprehensive view of how organizations around the world measure talent across the employee lifecycle.
This year’s report includes the results of an online survey conducted in late 2012 and completed by 592 human resources (HR) professionals from companies headquartered throughout the world. The report focuses on organizations’ talent assessment practices with both internal and external job candidates. As in previous reports, pertinent comparisons are drawn to results of previous Global Assessment Trends Reports to identify trends over time. Additionally, relevant comparisons between respondents in emerging versus established economy types are presented.
The report focuses on three areas: the HR landscape in 2013, the nature of assessment use in organizations, and the use of technology in assessment.
