Events & Webinars

Throughout the year we host and sponsor a series of events, strategic roundtables and webinars where we explore how digitalisation is changing the world of talent acquisition and online assessment, and share best practice on how to design a personalised, frictionless, end-to-end assessment experience.

Our aim is to provide the space and time to think critically about building organisations where people thrive and flourish and the role that talent assessment plays in making better people decisions.
