About LTP:
LTP offers a rich palette of assessment tools and consulting services, some of which were developed in-house and some of which are offered in cooperation with various universities.
Our services are based on the insights and advice that we can provide regarding the factors that motivate people. But always within the context of the following questions: Who is the person best suited for the position? Can this person develop himself/herself further? How can I realise my potential more fully in my present role? Who are the real talents in the organisation? How can we improve the effectiveness of our leadership?

LTP was established in 1927. We have offices in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Groningen and Rotterdam. We work closely together with clients from all sectors of the business community, the healthcare and educational sectors, and a great many government organisations. Internationally, we work together with partner firms in Europe, Asia and the US.

About the assessment:
Besides being valid and reliable, an assessment should also be fun, attractive, and energising. Not surprisingly, more and more assessments include games. The use of games makes it possible to measure a variety of individual characteristics in an innovative fashion. It is a valuable addition to more traditional questionnaires and tests. In addition to the feeling of being challenged experienced by the players, the use of games and simulations enables us to make measurements in a different way.

LTP has developed various games for different situations. These games can be used on an individual as well as group basis. During the Career Week we offer you the chance to experience a live assessment, including a game, a measurement of personality and an interview. A unique opportunity to learn more about yourself (strengths and points for development) and to gain some experience and training in assessments! At the end, you will receive a transparent report, including strong points and limitations, that provides a point of reference for the benefits to be expected from further development.
