Assessment Solutions

Leadership & Assessments

Our assessments focus on three critical dimensions that will help in building greater self awareness in leaders


Aon believes a holistic assessment of human capability is based on the interplay of

  • Cognitive ability
  • Personal Characteristics
  • Demonstrated Competence

Aon recommends the assessments across all these three clusters need to be on the following principles

  • Differentiated by organization’s managerial level needs
  • Predictive of an incumbents performance and development in the future
  • Aligned to the Role the individual is expected to deliver
  • Consistently of an incumbents performance and development in the future
  • Scalable to deliver across large volumes and multiplication

Our approach to development is three pronged- Knowing, Being and Doing


Our approach comes to life in four simple phases

•Creation of a competency framework aligned to strategic business imperatives •Design custom assessments best suited to measure key behaviors and competencies •Identify key developmental areas for each of the participants to develop individual development plans •Using a combination of assessment and post development data, create individual dashboards that would feed into an end of journey ‘talent review’
•Socialization of the competency framework to the leadership team as well as the HR team (who would then further cascade the same to their respective teams) •Conduct assessments (virtual/in-person/hybrid)

•Conduct  one-on-one feedback sessions with each of the participants
•Create a specialized development journey to facilitate  development on key identified areas identified in phase 2 •Outcomes of talent review to facilitate key decisions on talent mobility within the group, succession planning and individual  readiness for next level roles
Guiding principles for our proposed approach

Based on our experience, 5 principles we recommend for assessment and development:
