VirtualAC's

Work | Abilities | Simulations and Competency-Based Assessments | Screening | Leadership and Managerial Roles

With 44 virtual exercises to choose from, the VirtualAC™ range of exercises allow practitioners to assess potential employees’ performance across business functions, industry sectors, and the employment lifespan from graduates to executives, in highly immersive and interactive virtual simulated work environments similar to that of what they are applying for. Using VirtualAC™, candidates will be asked to respond to information and issues presented in a variety of formats, such as emails, video messages, voicemails, calendar items, documents and organisation charts. Through the simulated online desktop, participants can be asked to respond to emails, write documents or reports and schedule meetings in their calendar. Specific competencies measured by each VirtualAC™ is also indicated, making it easier for practitioners to ensure that they create a comprehensive selection battery to find the right candidate for the job.
