What is the Group Exercise?

The leading recruiters often use the group exercise as a fundamental tool in the sifting process of job applicants. The exercise is designed to identify specific selection criteria, according to the job description candidates are applying for.

Throughout the duration of the group exercise, candidates face challenging and complex tasks within the framework of a group of 8-16 people. Group members may be candidates for the same position as you or for other positions.

There is a wide spectrum of behaviours that are demonstrated by applicants during a group exercise in an assessment centre, ranging from loud and dominant people to shy and introvert. The group dynamic reveals each participant's individual behaviour thereby enabling the recruiters to predict how each applicant is likely to behave and progress in the work environment in general and how they are likely to react in specific situations.

What is the Purpose of the Group Exercise?

The group exercise's purpose is to predict and assess:

  • Ability to work in a team
  • Social skills and social confidence
  • Ability to work under stress and pressure
  • Ability to take initiative and influence others
  • Communication skills: manners, nature, generosity, aggression, dominance, listening skills, independent mindedness and more.
  • The degree of compatibility between your social skills and the skills required for the job opening.
