Identifying High-Potential Graduates for BAE Systems
One of the primary aims of the project was to increase the diversity of graduates, particularly women and engineers, getting onto the high-potential graduate leadership programme.
We conducted a statistical evaluation of the current process from application stage through to assessment centre, based on data collected over a number of years.
Our focus was to identify differences in success rate between demographic groups at each stage of the process. Using this information, we implemented a number of changes and adjustments to the criteria, application form, sift process and assessment centre.
The organisation reported a significant increase in the number of candidates from the targeted underrepresented groups applying for the programme and being selected onto it. This included female engineers, a particular group the organisation had been struggling to attract and recruit onto the programme.
