Issues

EY Parthenon was facing a lack of cohesion among its youngrecruits and a high turnover. In addition, the group was concernedabout the lack of visibility on how the candidate would behave withhis future colleagues.

Actions taken

EY Parthenon has set up half-day interview sessionswith candidates who have applied for all types of positions.

Confirmed results

For the recruiter, this half-day is an opportunityto discover the candidates in interaction with their future colleaguesoutside the strict and exclusive framework of the interview, and thusto evaluate their integration potential. For the candidates, it helpsthem better perceive the company culture, have informal exchangeswith junior employees, and confirm that they would like to workalongside them. Finally, it also helps to identify future “strong pairs” ofcolleagues, i.e., pairs or even groups of colleagues whose cohesion,mutual aid and teamwork would be strengthened.
