Our recruitment process is a journey through stages that reflect the essence of our corporate culture at Plan-S. Our aim is to recruit team members who are aligned with our values. To achieve this, each potential candidate undergoes a comprehensive assessment journey.
Starting with a behavioural assessment supported by a skills inventory, we seek to understand the fit between the candidate's disposition and our culture. This is followed by a technical and professional assessment, enriched by a relevant case study reflecting real-life scenarios. Finally, we bring the essence of the game to our assessment process.
In the final stage of our assessment, we added a fun element by playing different board games specific to each position. This stage is designed to be both fun and educational for both the candidate and us. We believe in the importance of finding new playmates who see their work as an engaging endeavour and see us as their companions on this journey.
The selection of board games goes beyond entertainment. Each game has been carefully selected to match the skills relevant to different departments. For Engineering, problem solving is key; for Procurement, Sales and Finance, negotiation skills are key; and for Corporate Communications and People & Culture, creativity is emphasized.
Before the game session, we provide information to candidates regarding the selected game. Additionally, we form a group of team members with whom the candidate will work closely. This collaborative approach allows each participant to fully engage with the game. It is particularly gratifying to see our new colleagues relish this interactive and enjoyable final stage of their interview.
Beyond the laughter and shared excitement, these gaming sessions act as a catalyst for seamless workplace integration. Our new team members establish a unique bond and positive workplace experience on their inaugural day. This common ground created through board games reflects the camaraderie shared by our whole team. Whilst the results may differ, the underlying spirit of unity and connection remains constant.
