The Test for CEO candidates

The CEO is the most important person in a company. Combining vision, leadership and management, the CEO is responsible for helping a company stay competitive, profitable and successful. It makes sense, then, that the recruitment of a CEO is a vital process. Hire the wrong individual and it can prove costly. The right person has to combine confidence with a proven track record and an ability to deliver results.

The Ivory Office Test for CEO candidates was created to make the selection process simpler.

Designed for Recruiters, HR Managers and business owners the evaluation reduces the risk of failure in the process of recruiting a CEO.

How the CEO test works

  • To be a top performing CEO you need a wide range of skills. They fall into three key areas

    • The ability to identify managers who are of the highest value and will contribute most to the company.
    • The ability to provide managers with a framework that allows and stimulates success and high performance.
    • The ability to keep managers focused on the right goals and targets.
  • To be able to identify the truly high value/potential managers, a CEO must first know what skills each manager should have. They should be able to rank those skills in terms of importance and also be able to measure the impact those skills will have on company success and turnover.

    This test measures each candidate's ability to spot and select top managers. This is the first step in building a top performance management team.
