Nestlé Ghana has launched a Graduate Trainee Recruitment Assessment Centre that will enable the company nurture superior talents to join its Supply Chain, Sales, Marketing and Finance Departments for long-term career opportunities.
The Assessment Center serves as a platform to coach and adequately prepare young talents, providing them with equal opportunities for their development and advancement in a recognized multi-national company.
The initiative is part of efforts by Nestlé to find people with the required skills that meet the company’s expectation, while ensuring the sustainability of training to unlock the potential of the youth in Ghana and elsewhere in the region. 
Strengthening Our Talent Pool
The first assessment attracted over 800 applicants who responded to advertisements placed on the Nestlé e-recruitment platform (www.nestlé-cwa.com/en/jobs) and in some national dailies.
Of the number, 430 were shortlisted for an aptitude test out of which 28 were invited to participate in the coaching exercises.  
Unlocking the potentials of recruits
The assessment process allowed the candidates to go through series of exercises, which enabled them to exhibit their technical skills and behavioral competences.
This included an aptitude test, personal presentation, group discussion and individual case studies. Candidates therefore worked individually and also in groups on exercises that allowed them to practically apply their academic knowledge to real life situations.  
Nestlé’s Leadership Framework
The candidates were introduced to the evolved Nestlé Leadership Framework, with particular focus on the following behaviors: Understanding the Business Environment, Proactive Cooperation, Know Yourself, Result Focus and Initiative. Consideration was also given to oratorical proficiency, appearance and analytical skills.  
Attracting the best talents
On the eve of the assessment, Raymond Naon, Human Resources Business Partner for Support Functions at the Central and West Africa regional office in Accra took the assessors through a training session on the rationale for the establishment of the Centre, highlighting the roles and responsibilities of the recruits.  
 On assessment day, both assessors and applicants appeared ready for the exercise, smartly dressed and full of passion. They were divided into four groups, namely Marketing, Sales, Finance and Supply Chain.
Each group had a minimum of three (3) assessors, including senior management members of Nestle Ghana supported by a team from the Central and West Africa Regional office in Accra.
All the candidates received “gifts” after lunch in the form of feedback. Both the successful and unsuccessful candidates were informed of their improvement areas and their strengths. It is said that constructive feedback is a gift and it was received positively by all the candidates.
