Selection Processes & Assessing Candidates

Making selection processes more efficient and effective
Man choosing the right employee



Y2CP has a wealth of experience conducting selection processes (and work style/leadership assessments) on behalf of both public and private sector organizations.

Screening can be a challenge. How can you ensure that candidates meet all the factors in the essential and/or asset qualifications, especially when you have a large pool of applicants? Y2CP has various screening techniques to help you meet this challenge.



We can help managers with the following:

  • Making recommendations on the type of selection process to be undertaken
  • Drafting and finalizing the statement of merit criteria (SOMC)
  • Developing the assessment guide, tools (exams, interview and reference check questions) and processes
  • Drafting and finalizing the posters for selection processes
  • Coordinating and participating in the assessment of priorities, and in the screening and assessment of candidates
  • Coordinating and administering exams, conducting interviews and reference checks
  • Preparing the board reports and finalizing results of the process (e.g. establishing pools of candidates)

Y2CP provides its clients with well-researched and validated methodologies and screening/assessment tools to select the right people for the right jobs. Often the development of selection/assessment tools require the kind of specialized training, education, and experience that Y2CP provides its clients.

Written Tests

Written Tests

Written exams aim to predict future job performance by obtaining an objective measurement of the extent to which candidates possess certain knowledge, skills or behaviours considered necessary to successfully perform in particular jobs. Our experts work with you to develop the written exams (including electronic exams) you need for selection processes.

Reference Checks

Interviews/Reference Checks

We work with clients to produce customized rating guides/interview questions to meet your particular needs. The assessment specifications often include parameters (e.g. the total time for the interview) and guidelines for scoring or evaluating the candidates.

In addition to our online reference check system, we can help you develop a set of behaviour-based reference check questions and carry them out by telephone.

Recourse & Redress

At Y2CP, we believe that systems designed to identify/select top talent need not only meet organizational requirements, but also be professionally and legally defensible.
