“Working with HR in an international environment, we have chosen Actualise as our local U.K supplier for internal and external assessments in recruitment and career development. The profiling given has been very professional and an important addition in our decision making process to further improve our competencies.” Mats Hjerpe, HR manager, Erasteel (now HRD with Permobil)

Actualise worked with myself and my Global Head of HR during a period of great change and transition and assisted to pragmatically and efficiently provide insights and a totally practical framework to enhance our recruitment and assessment landscape. I would not hesitate to recommend Actualise as subject matter experts and consultants within their chosen field, and I can vouch for the fact that he will always create and advise from a business and commercial perspective to achieve the 'fit for purpose' solution that a Company and HR team are looking for.

Actualise brought their valuable expertise to designing, facilitating, and managing the graduate assessment centres for the Kelda Group. Their consultant made the process of assessing and selecting graduates in the assessment centres easy, absorbing the inevitable pressure by running a military style operation with a smile. His insight and gentle challenge in the feedback wash-ups was crucial to us making effective selection decisions for the organisation.

I have worked with Actualise for the past three and half years, during which time they have supported our business in a number of ways. Their consultant was instrumental in helping us develop our thinking around what our core values should be and what he developed has since been thoroughly embedded within the business. Actualise has also delivered on a number of other initiatives including the entire assessment suite for our graduate training scheme, a new and exciting selection toolkit for our call centre staff, and inspirational insight into our resourcing and talent strategy. Actualise are a pleasure to work with and their professionalism, creativity and pragmatism have proved invaluable to this business.

Mary Purbrook, HR Business Partner, Hastings Direct

For my previous company, Actualise designed a fantastic “Behaviours and Requirements Framework” with very concise definitions, which we incorporated into individual employment journeys. For example as part of on-boarding, internal selection, performance discussions and also redundancy campaigns. The HR team used the framework as part of day-to-day activities.
