Future-Proofing Candidate Selection at Siemens

Siemens has witnessed huge market changes, encouraging the company to rethink the products and services it offers as a business. The positions it requires to be filled and the talent it hires all need to reflect these changes.

The starting point for Siemens was to define talent success – the behaviors, characteristics and skills needed by future employees to continue to deliver success in the market. These characteristics are specific to Siemens and form the new Siemens Mindset Model.

With this in place, Siemens sought out robust talent assessments that would identify these competencies in its applicants, while delivering a candidate-centric process which enhances the brand. To ensure assessments were of value to Siemens and straightforward for applicants, the team carried out an internal validation study.

By analyzing assessment results alongside performance scores, it was clear that:

  • High in-post performance can be predicted.
  • Siemens can be confident in the talent decisions it makes.
  • Candidates are engaged with the assessments and understand the link between the assessments and the required characteristics.
  • Managers can make better hiring decisions.
