In this episode, we speak to Kevin Distiller, the new managing director of OMT subsidiary company Odyssey Talent Assessments. Kevin focuses on assessing the skills required to successfully enter the working world. He spends most of his time assessing individuals in the lower levels of organisations, identifying hidden talent, assessing work readiness, rolling out online assessment solutions and identifying the key levers to unlock performance at entry levels.
Some questions asked in this interview:
- What is the value proposition of assessments for business?
- Why do you focus on identifying talent in entry levels?
- When it comes to identifying and leveraging talent at this level, what are companies doing right and what are they failing to do?
- What is the current state of Psychological Assessment in SA?
- When it comes to Gamification are we doing enough in the gamified assessment space here in SA or should be dazzled less with its promises?
