Capp brings Strengths-based assessments to Australian talent programs

Leading UK assessments to drive smarter decision making among HR leaders

From today, organisations in Australia will have the opportunity to transform their talent capabilities through unique strengths-based assessments. The programs, delivered by Capp, are designed to ensure workplace leaders have the tools and insights to make smart, evidence-led recruitment and performance decisions.

“In an environment where leaders are battling skills shortages, culture challenges and technology changes, it’s essential that leaders have the ability to create an agile talent strategy that addresses business needs and serves them long-term. This means having a highly capable and engaged workforce,” says Lucy Zucker, our Head of Client Success.

Capp is a talent technology company that pinpoints the strengths, and people, needed for organisational success. Operating out of the UK for over 12 years, organisations including Microsoft, Nestle, Ernst & Young, Thomson Reuters and Barclays rely upon us to deliver programs that strengthen their future talent.

Following conversations with Australian heads of HR, Lucy believes there’s a huge opportunity for organisations to evolve their hiring and development processes alongside changing workforce needs.

“Too many companies have been assessing candidates against a list of generic competencies, such as communication or innovation. What they’re not doing is assessing candidates on their strengths; ones that support business success and the candidate.

“By identifying and attracting ‘can-do-love-to’ people – those who are not only able to do their job, but also love their job – means organisations can hire, or develop, the right people who will have a positive long-term impact on business outcomes,”

Considering skills and organisational fit in the context of market changes will drive better outcomes for everyone. 

“We know that when people get to use their strengths, they are more engaged, happier, and are more likely to achieve their goals. Identifying and developing talent where strengths are utilised is vital, and a win-win for people and organisations,” adds Lucy.

Our data shows that organisations that leverage strengths as part of their talent programs are 50 percent more likely to have lower employee turnover and 71 percent more likely to have employees who are engaged at work.

“At a time where the demands of candidates are high, and the pressure to compete and remain relevant is constant, it’s essential leaders ensure their workforce capability is strongly aligned with business goals if they want to yield long-term business results.”
