Over the past 15 years, the use of online unsupervised occupational assessments have become the norm. This growth has been mostly due to advances in testing technology and the benefits of convenience and choice that this brings for organisations and individuals. Despite this growth, the training of psychometrists is still largely based on procedures and best practice guidelines written for supervised testing. 

A number of major cut-e clients recently met in Hamburg for a fun-filled networking event. During this session, HR and assessment practitioners had the opportunity to make new connections, participate in fun activities as well as share practical information on how they had used online assessments for added value in their work contexts.

During 2011 and 2013, cut-e conducted a study into the value that HR practitioners, hiring managers and L&D specialists gain from using psychometric assessments. Both these studies received overwhelming support globally and from individual countries. The large turnout in participation enabled a better understanding of the trends in psychometric usage between these years.

At TTS we are pleased to inform our clients that one of our partners, Saville Consulting has been acquired by Towers Watson, a leading global company in the areas of benefits, rewards, talent and risk management. As these companies share a passionate commitment in developing and delivering transformative and innovative human capital solutions, we are looking forward to this collaboration that will yield new opportunities to us and our clients.
