Briefly describe the concept of assessment centre method.

Assessment centre concept was initially applied to Military situations in German Army in 1930s and British Army in 1960s. Under this method many evaluators join together to judge employee’s performance in several situations with the use of a variety of criteria.
The assessments are made/done with the help of couple of employees and involve a paper and pencil test, interviews and situational exercises such as in basket exercise, business game, a role playing incident and leaderless group discussions.
Evaluators are experienced managers with proven ability to evaluate the employees, both individually and collectively. A summary report is prepared and feed back is given on a face to face basis to all employees who ask for it.
