Tata Steel’s talent and development department has a long standing relationship with Cubiks, using Cubiks 360, bespoke leadership competencies and PAPI to select and develop talent. Building on the success of the partnership, Tata’s recruitment department approached Cubiks for support with further professionalising its selection processes.

Need for a targeted approach
In hiring new graduates, trainees and starters, Tata recruits for varied positions across a number of locations. Cubiks was brought in to help Tata with campus recruitment. Analysis of the existing approach had highlighted a need for assessments to better highlight candidates’ suitability for specific roles.
Combined assessments offer deeper insight
The Tata recruitment team opted for a combination of Cubiks assessments to explore both the personality and ability of potential new hires. It was important to Tata that they would be able to get an objective view on the characteristics and capabilities of this relatively new target group.
Cubiks assisted Tata with deploying PAPI, the world leading personality assessment, alongside Logiks ability tests. This would equip the recruitment team with impartial knowledge of candidates’ cognitive ability as well as their possible flexibility and potential for success in a range of roles.
Confidence in an objective process
By deploying PAPI and Logiks in combination, Line Managers are now confident that the selection approach is robust and objective. The reports from these assessments provide recruiters with the insight they need to make better selection choices, knowing that the graduates they hire are well-matched to their positions and the organisation. In addition, candidates have reported that they find the new process stimulating, appreciating that the challenges in their assessments reflect the demands of their new roles.
