Aon Hewitt, world’s leading HR Consulting and Outsourcing firm, announced the launch of its suite of selection and assessment tools for Sri Lankan organisations. The suite covers a range of solutions – campus and entry level candidate selection, middle management assessments, senior management development centres and virtual development centres. Aon Hewitt has been working with leading Sri Lankan companies over the past decade, partnering on talent management and HR related programs. The launch of the tools in the Sri Lankan market reflects the growing awareness among HR practitioners here that few decisions are as important as linking of assessment and development programs to organisational objectives. Industrial Organisational psychologist and the architect of Aon Hewitt’s Selection and Assessment solutions in APAC, Dr. Pat Caputo, is in Colombo for the launch. He said, “The ability to collect and analyse vast amount of data is transforming how we understand the world. Strategic and predictive analytics can enable organisations to draw unique and valuable insights from data for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of their HR function – both for hiring and development. As Sri Lankan organisations brace themselves for incremental growth, their strength in selection and assessment will define future success.” Nitin Sethi, Partner, Performance, Rewards and Talent, Aon Hewitt, mentioned, “We see organisations today successfully linking hiring data to people metrics (like performance, productivity and engagement and attrition) and business metrics (like customer satisfaction, productivity and revenue). This gives HR the unique ability to determine return on investment on various tools, programs and initiatives. Technology gives our tools the unique edge of instantaneous analyses and reporting.” Aon Hewitt will leverage its robust and proven Global Assessment and Talent Engine (G.A.T.E.) for hosting these tools.
