OutMatch Leadership Simulation enables companies to measure the difference between ‘high potential’ and ‘ready now’ candidates before making succession decisions.

OutMatch, a leader in helping organizations match the right people with the right jobs, today introduced its newest solution: virtual leadership simulations that enable companies to make better, faster, and more cost-effective leadership selection decisions as well as improve succession planning, and more effective leadership development programs.

OutMatch Leadership Simulation, powered by Pinsight™, enables companies to use objective data and helps avoid the trap of using current performance to predict future success – a practice that results in managers making poor succession recommendations 60 percent of the time. By immersing candidates in realistic yet challenging online leadership simulations using live web-cam role plays with trained human actors, OutMatch Leadership Simulation observes more than 250 leadership behaviors in a simulated business environment. Certified assessors generate data analytics that evaluate the potential and readiness of managers, directors, and executives for more responsibility, and predict a leader’s ability to execute an organization’s specific strategies.

Typical in-person simulations can cost $10,000 per employee and take up to 2 days to complete. By using this virtual solution, simulations can now be done in 3 hours, at a fraction of the cost, and deliver better results.

“OutMatch Leadership Simulation enables companies to measure the difference between ‘high potential’ and ‘ready now’ candidates before making succession decisions,” said OutMatch President and CEO Greg Moran. “Using future-oriented data, organizations gain valuable insight to predict and confidently put the right leaders in place to drive growth and profitability.”

OutMatch Leadership Simulation provides different simulations for various levels within an organization, from front-line managers to senior executives. Candidates review a fictional business case study prior to participating in the virtual role-play simulation, which takes approximately three hours. They gain a real sense of what it’s like to be in the job, resulting in great insights. Within 24 hours, an assessment report is produced that delivers analytics regarding readiness and potential, and identifies high-potential candidates. In addition, participants receive personalized feedback and follow-up development exercises.

OutMatch processes more than 10 million candidates per year for job opportunities at over 200,000 locations, providing the measurement, insight, and impact that companies need to make better hires. Using an industry-first SaaS+ model that combines innovative technology, world-class services, and support, OutMatch works with large, decentralized organizations with high-volume hiring needs in the hospitality, restaurant, and retail industries, including recognized names such as American Airlines, Aspen Dental, Brinker International, Circle K, Esurance, Hyatt, and La Quinta.
