SIFT™: Screening Individuals for Fit and Talent

Online Sifting – The Faster Way to Identify the Right Candidates

a&dc’s SIFT™ solution predicts future performance in the role so that you can make better selection decisions from a vast pool of candidates, resulting in better quality hires.

Provided on our online assessment platform, Apollo™, SIFT assesses core competencies, values, measures of judgement, preferences and cognitive ability using a Realistic Job Preview, Eligibility Screen, Behavioural Styles Questionnaire and Situational Judgement Test. Each assessment stage is tailored to your organisation and specific role requirements to maximise the prediction of candidate potential, enhance the candidate experience and differentiate your employer value proposition. Here’s an example:


Realistic Job Preview – a self-selection questionnaire which presents candidates with information about various demands and challenges they may face in the role.

Eligibility Screen – a series of questions which determine whether the candidate meets the standard requirements of the role.

Behavioural Styles Questionnaire – a questionnaire about a candidate’s typical behaviour and the values they emphasise at work.

Situational Judgement Test – a questionnaire which requires candidates to rate the effectiveness of a series of responses to realistic work-related scenarios.
