You can only use this function if you have both the Recruitment module and the Development module active for your organisations, and there is at east one person who has completed the self-Awareness Insights in your organisation. This is necessary to have data to access for the mirroring process.
Selecting the right lens for a recruitment is an important step in the recruitment process. For some jobs it might prove necessary to go beyond the available research-based lenses that Assessio offers and create a new lens for your organisation. To do this you can either choose to start from an existing lens, or to use assessment data from one of your organisation’s employees as a starting point. By using assessment data of an individual, you ‘mirror’ this persons competencies to create a new lens.
Using a person’s data as a starting point to create a new lens is useful, when:
None of the existing lenses adequately describes the job you want a lens for, even after boosting.
The person is a high-performer in the job you want to create the lens for, meaning they have an easy time performing well on behaviors that are essential for the job.
The person must also have completed two assessments MAP and Matrigma, via the Self-Awareness Insights of the Development module. The Assessio platform uses the employees data to create two different lenses, a leadership-based lens, with the four leadership competencies, and a specialist-based lens, with a selection of all available peopleship competencies. The selection of competencies and the weights given to these competencies in the lens are based on what fits best to the high performing employee; which lenses would lead to the highest match scores?
Creating a lens this way leads to a new combination of competencies, one that will not be represented by any of the Interview guides. No interview guide will be available when ‘Lens details’ is selected’ by any recruitment user.
Creating a new lens by mirroring an employee
Go to the Lens Maker by selecting Lens Management in the menu on the left and then choosing Lens Maker from the drop down menu.
Select mirror a high performing employee and click start.
Type the name of the employee whose data you want to use and then click Continue.
The name of the person is only used to select the right high performer; the platform does not store this name in the lens and it cannot be retrieved after the lens has been created.
Select either the Leadership lens or the Specialist lens and click Continue.
Edit the lens details and click Continue.
Here you provide the new name of the lens as well as a subtitle and a description of the lens. This and the subsequent steps are the same for mirroring a high performer as they are for customizing an existing lens.
Select the Performance areas you want to boost by selecting the + next to Strategic or Operative and Driving or Enabling.
You can decide to boost the weighting in either the Strategic/Operative domain and/or the Enabling/Driving domain. You can also choose not to boost the lens.
Choose the visibility of the new lens.
You can either make the lens available to all everyone in your organisation, to be used in new recruitments, or hide it for now. Hiding it means that it will be hidden from the rest of the organisation. When the lens is ready to be used by the organisation, a Recruitment admin can navigate to the Lens Library and edit the visibility of the lens.
Click Save & Go to lens library.
