DWHR designed and delivered a series of management and leadership development programmes for GallifordTry Partnerships: Subjects covered included:
DWHR have designed and delivered assessment processes at a number of levels, from main grade employee to operational manager, for Essex County Council Trading Standards. These processes invariably involve the design of suitable exercises, such as presentations, role-plays, analysis exercises and group exercises. They also involve the assimilation of competency-based, structured interviews, as well as the selection of appropriate psychometric assessments. They have also often included the use of the "Regulatory Services Test" (RST), www.regu-test.co.uk, a psychometric assessment designed by DWHRC, Blue edge Consulting and EETSA Ltd, to assess performance-critical aspects of regulatory work.
DWHR have worked with a number of private individuals in Braintree, Colchester and Chelmsford on career-transition, job-search and outplacement projects. Most of these people have been in jobs which they came to feel dissatisfied with, and wished to move on from. DWHR helped them do this, with the use of strengths and positive psychology-based approaches, e.g. the use of the Strengthscope psychometric assessment. Some of the people involved have also been made redundant, as a product of the current economic climate. In these situations, there has been lot more emphasis on job-search techniques and finding the next role.
DWHR have contributed psychometric assessment services to an assessment and selection process for Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) at Basildon District Council, specifically the "Regulatory Services Test" (RST), www.regu-test.co.uk, a bespoke-designed on-line psychometric assessment.
DWHR delivered a presentation for the south-east Essex CIPD Group in Southend on the "dark-side" of personality. This included an explanation of what is meant by the "dark-side", together with a description of a psychometric instrument which has been designed to assess it – the Hogan Development Survey (HDS). The session also included a short role-play of a feedback session with someone who had just taken the HDS. The evening's entertainment concluded with all those present being offered both light and dark chocolates, as a metaphor for the bright and dark sides of human personality. Consequently, feedback from those present was extremely positive!
