Virtual Day-in-the-Life Exercises

Using our VirtualACTM platform, participants are asked to respond to information that is presented through a variety of formats, such as emails, video messages, voicemails, calendar items, documents and organisation charts. This ‘Day-in-the-Life’ format provides an immersive candidate experience, whilst allowing for a comprehensive assessment of a candidate across multiple exercises and competencies.

Each Virtual Day-in-the-Life Exercise includes three components:

  • Inbox – each email represents a typical daily work issue, varying in importance and complexity.
  • Analysis exercise – Verbal and numerical information is analysed by the participant who will then report their conclusions and recommendations.
  • Roleplay – Participants take part in a performance management meeting with a direct report or colleague (over the phone).

Assessors can mark the participant’s exercise online using our structured marking system, leave comments about their performance and our SmartScoringTM formula can suggest a rating automatically for each competency being assessed.

Once marking is completed, you can generate a PDF Assessor Report on demand, summarising an individual’s performance on the exercise.
