Inside This Assessment

The role of a manager is rightly interposed between the organization's hierarchical structure and ranks of positions for performing critical business functions. It takes a dynamic manager to understand the team and organizational dynamics. The manager's role is critical, as the person has to act as a bridge between the employees and the leadership team and coordinate with his team for optimal productivity. Selecting the right candidate for the managerial role is critical for organizational growth. Typically, the old-school hiring methods do not help recruiters make the proper selection consistently. Consequently, there is a need for an objective, bias-free and scientific tool for assessing managerial potential. Similarly, an effective individual contributor may sometimes struggle to be an effective manager and hence, may not be able to demonstrate exemplary performance as a first time manager. That is where Mercer| Mettl's Managerial Potential Assessment comes in handy and helps identify the developmental needs in order to help the employees and organizations groom their managers.
