Powerful Assessment Expertise
4 Powerful, in-depth
Psychometric and behavioural assessment have the power to activate people and teams to be more effective and to realise their potential. Assessment is a core area of our expertise; it is one of the central ways we help clients and candidates think better, make stronger decisions and create insight.
Assess for insight
Assess to activate.
Business runs on data; good decisions need strong evidence.
In our hands, the science of assessment brings rich insight to the question of individual and organisational development. Questions like: “how can we increase the strength of our management team, recruitment by recruitment?”; “how do we improve the impact of our sales?”; “how do we develop key leaders to make a greater impact?” and “how do we build teams with great potential to succeed?”
Multiplex develops and implements a portfolio of assessments which can be used simply, as part of a Multiplex-managed process.
We believe in a holistic evaluation that considers both technical proficiency and essential interpersonal skills for thriving in diverse workplace environments. We use an array of assessments combined with a competency-based interview to paint a comprehensive picture of an individual’s capabilities that enable us to give specific recommendations depending on the purpose of assessment. All of our assessment processes include an assessment report for the client company and individual, as well as a feedback session with the candidate in which we help them to understand the results and identify their strengths and development areas.
Our in-depth competency-based assessments delve into the core qualities that drive success in a specific role. Our approach goes beyond traditional hiring methods, incorporating a meticulous blend of cognitive, personality, and skills assessments. This enables us to make informed and nuanced recommendations about the candidate’s suitability for a given position. What sets us apart is our dedication to understanding not only the unique competencies required by a specific role but also the dynamic demands of the business landscape.
Our in-depth competency-based assessments focus on an individual’s current role and capabilities and their underlying potential to take on further responsibility and complexity in future. Through this we present recommendations for development and support people with feedback to unlock and harness their potential.
Strong selection & development assessment requires careful planning & implementation
Done well, it enables powerful decision-making and it uplifts those being assessed.
Done poorly, assessment is about tests not people. The results are unclear or contradictory and candidates get wounded.

Is Multiplex using the best tools?
We employ a unique and comprehensive approach to assessment. Instead of relying on isolated methods of assessing personality, cognition, and leadership, we take pride in our blended approach. Our strength lies in our capacity to design, test, and validate assessments that are precisely tailored to the demands of your industry, market, and specific roles.
We firmly believe that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, and that’s why we utilise a combination of tools to provide the most insightful and accurate results. By leveraging a diverse set of assessments, we enhance the depth and breadth of our insights. We don’t solely rely on technological tools; we infuse our assessments with human intelligence, ensuring a nuanced understanding that goes beyond mere data points.

We’re here to provide clarity and assist you in making informed decisions for your organisation.
Is the assessment programme ethical & well managed?
Our commitment to an ethical and well-managed assessment programme is something we pride ourselves on. We understand the significance of trust when it comes to assessments, and we want you to feel confident in choosing our services.
At the heart of our approach is a dedication to ethical practices. Led by a team of licensed psychometrists, we ensure that our assessments are not only accurate but also conducted with the utmost professionalism and care.
Kindness is a fundamental aspect of our feedback delivery. While honesty is essential, we recognise the potential impact that poorly delivered feedback can have on people. Our goal is to provide constructive feedback that unlocks the potential of each person we assess.
What is the Multiplex philosophy towards assessment?
Our philosophy on assessment is rooted in the belief that assessments should not only provide managers and leaders with valuable data but also offer candidates thoughtful and compassionate feedback. We see assessment as a tool that goes beyond providing mere data points – it’s about supporting decision-making with concrete evidence while maintaining a human touch.
One key aspect of our approach is ensuring that feedback is an integral part of the process. Every candidate is offered feedback, presented in a kind and constructive manner. We understand that assessment can be a significant experience for people, and our goal is to make it an enriching one. Whether it’s acknowledging strengths or identifying areas for growth, our feedback is designed to empower candidates to enhance their impact.
Against what standards does Multiplex compare its assessments?
We have honed our understanding of what excellence entails in various industries, roles, and levels of work through years of experience. This knowledge forms the basis of our benchmarking process, where we compare assessment results against industry-specific standards.
Our commitment extends beyond aligning with internal standards. To ensure that your business remains globally competitive, we go a step further by benchmarking assessments against global industry standards. This holistic approach ensures that our assessments not only reflect what ‘good’ looks like within your organisation but also position your business on a globally competitive scale.
We have benchmarked a library of competencies for this purpose. While we apply this library across industries and businesses, we recognise that there are instances where it makes sense for companies to develop their own competency framework. In such cases, partnering with us allows you to integrate your company’s specific competency framework as the central measurement template. This collaborative approach defines what we consider high-value corporate assessment.
