Helping Hands Philanthropic Team Building – The Helping Hands Project is a truly unique opportunity for organisations to get involved with a worthwhile cause at the same time as super-charging employee engagement. More than just a team building or training activity, participants in our programs build prosthetic hands that are then donated to amputee land mine victims throughout the developing world. The activity empowers every participant in just a few hours to make a real and lasting contribution and in doing sore minds people what it feels like to be engaged in a truly purposeful activity.

It is hard for us to communicate just how powerful the activity is in words alone, so we recently created a video all about it :

If, after watching the video, you would like to find out more information about the activity then just check out the following article:

  • Compare your results against robust industry benchmarks
  • Clearly identify trends in results over time
  • Provide real-time reporting that enable HR or Line Management to address any especially urgent issues immediately

Psychological Assessment –Psychological assessment is becoming a very common part of most recruitment processes! Conducting a psychological assessment of candidates PRIOR to offering them a role can help avoid unnecessary additional training and turnover costs. It can also help managers avoid the significant additional time and energy associated with managing poor performers.

Psychological Assessment is also particularly useful for development or career-planning purposes. Often having a well conducted assessment performed helps individuals obtain a level of self-insight that they simply would not have been able to achieve any other way.

Our staff are experts in identifying the most critical competencies to assess (given your specific needs) and developing a testing strategy that meets your needs (and budget).

For general information please see the attached brochure
