Sun Chemical see the light

Sun Chemical is the world’s largest producer of printing inks and chemicals. In recent times,they have grown significantly both organically and through acquisition. Production Engineering Recruitment selection processes had traditionally been haphazard and relied mainly on unstructured interviews. Unsurprisingly many appointments have not always worked out

Academy were asked to design and deliver a new selection process focussing on the specific behaviours and competencies required in production management roles. At the 1st stage Academy worked with senior managers to analyse the characteristics required in successful production managers.The output was then used as the basis of a new assessment process.This included pre screening interviews, and a full assessment centre process including relevant ability tests, personality profiling, a group exercise, presentations, and a structured interview.
Initially this process was used to recruit Work Group and Operations Managers, but has now been rolled out for other roles within the business.

“It took a little while to convince our managers that our process needed changing. However they now realise that the people we hire live up to expectations. We’re so convinced by the tools and techniques that Academy has introduced that we will also be utilising them for our internal development processes.”
