Assessment Centre


Assessment Centres


During the assessment process recruiters can use business scenarios where they can challenge participants with lifelike tasks, and support candidates’ decision making by offering background stories. At SimTeam we provide different business scenarios, and our partners can choose from a variety of case studies, selecting the one that best fits the assessment centre’s needs and focus.


SimTeam for Assessment Centres


With SimTeam, recruiters can place participants into roles where they must adapt to complex situations and make difficult decisions. Recruiters can even provide situations where participants must encounter some sort of confrontation where they need to negotiate with other team members. Tasks can be based on case studies, and they can also be supplemented with individual challenges.


Focus topics


Adaption to new situations

Co-operational skills and teamwork

Communication and interpersonal skills

Analytic skills

Language skills


Conflict management, negotiation and leadership

Performance under time pressure


Why is it unique


The simulation can be configured with almost any kind of starting positions, and time pressure can be high or low, as desired, and it can be adjusted even while the simulation is in progress.

Unlike the other approaches, the SimTeam simulation is difficult to predict because a large number of parameters can be adjusted. Participants cannot prepare for its challenges, and the AC can always offer new scenarios.


Comparison to tray exercises


Teamwork can be introduced or approached in different ways

Decisions have an immediate effect

It can be customized with in-tray elements


Who should attend


The simulation can be used to assess recent graduates as the simulation itself requires no special knowledge and experience. The simulation can just as easily be used for participants in management positions, as the difficulty of the simulation is scalable. The suggested number of participants in assessment centres is between 2 and 16 persons, in teams of four. For each participant it is recommended to delegate one or two supervisors who can assess their individual performances and skills.
