The Fiji National University’s (FNU) National Training and Productivity Center (NTPC) together with Talegent New Zealand launched a talent identification solutions software.

The Talegent software is an on­line platform that allows employ­ers who have purchased the license software to log in and create assess­ments for their candidates and send out links electronically to these candidates to complete their assess­ments.

Talegent principal consultant Beth Sketcher said the software delivers creative solutions for pre­dicting human performance by combining the latest psychometric science, data analytics and technol­ogy with best designed practices to maximise engagement and predic­tive accuracy.

“Once the candidates completes the assessments it comes back in to the platform and employers can log on and retrieve the spreadsheet where you can see all the results listed and ranks and there you can download reports,” said Ms Sketch­er.

About the partnership

Sketcher said the partnership be­tween FNU through NTPC started mid-last year where a team from NTPC visited Talegents headquar­ters in New Zealand to be trained on the software (using and inter­preting the data).

“Since then FNU/NTPC has been working with some companies around Fiji to start implementing the psychiatric assessment as part of their selection process.

“The feedback has been very posi­tive – our platform is easy to use even without much guidance its quote easy to navigate and find your way around,” Ms Sketcher said.

NTPC director Isimeli Tagi­cakiverata said the software would assist local organisations short-list­ing and selecting the best candidate for the vacant positions.

“NTPC is delighted to be working with Talegent New Zealand.

“This software would assist em­ployers in selecting the right can­didate with the right skills set and attitude.

“We at NTPC have a duty to ensure that our training courses are prac­tical, relevant and meet the specific industry needs,” Mr Tagicakivera­ta said.

Acting deputy director executive management for NTPC, Dhiraj Sin­gh said it was important for local organisations to work with the best software to assist with its recruit­ment processes.

Mr Singh said NTPC was already working with organisations to test run the software.

“Having the right people for each role is critical to the survival of any organisation.

“This software is about trying to identify the best suitable candidate for the organisation, creation of succession plans etc.

“We have tested this software with a few local organisations like the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the response has been good,” Mr Singh said.

The launch was conducted during the 4th National Trainers Confer­ence (NTC), at the Pearl South Pa­cific Resort in Pacific Harbour last week.

More than 200 delegates compris­ing of industry professionals and experts in the human resources and training profession were in at­tendance.
