Welcome to the new Treasurer Test website

|17-10-2019| by Kendra Keydeniers |

The Treasurer Test has been tested successfully by four different peer groups with each different treasury knowledge and experience. Finishing this test period with the peer members was a huge milestone for everyone who has been working on the Treasurer Test. By achieving this milestone we could take the next important steps in the Treasurer Test process:

  • Analysing the Treasurer Test results in each peer group, compared with peer group members from the same and different peer groups
  • Analysing the questions in both the Treasury Technical Knowledge part and the Personality Profile part
  • Receiving feedback from peer group members, scientists and industry experts
  • Translating input into improvement of the Treasurer Test and the Result Report

The last months during the ‘summer period’ we have been working on these next steps which resulted in a restyled Treasurer Test. We are very proud to launch our new:

  • Candidate Result Report
  • Website
  • Logo

The Changes

Candidate Result Report
We made a huge improvement with the Treasurer Test Result Report. Besides the restyling in the layout of the report, we improved the results display in the Treasury Technical Knowledge part. We received feedback on how the displays with the semi circles were presented with statistical and analytical data. The candidates were sometimes confused in how they actually made the Treasurer Test. Was it good, ok or bad? We have cleared this up and the results display now presents a clear overview of the Treasury Technical Knowledge of the candidate with a stronger comparison component.

Are you one of our highly valued peer members? You can now download your enhanced report in your Treasurer Test account. If you need any help, contact us.

Website
The Treasurer Test has been uncoupled from the treasuryXL.com website, treasurertest.com is officially launched. The reason behind this is that Treasurer Test is an exclusive assessment product brand that has been grown and has its own identity. Where treasuryXL is expanding with the Dutch market as a basis, the Treasurer Test has been designed to serve the global market from the start.

Logo
New colors, new style and of course a new logo. The new Treasurer Test logo is developed with the idea that it needed more class now the Treasurer Test has been improved.  A logo redesign was a matter of course.

We are very happy and proud on our redesign and now truly confirm what is indicated on our new homepage: “ Measure the technical knowledge in treasury and the personality of the candidate “.
Of course we will keep on developing and innovating and are open for feedback anytime.

TreasurerTest.com is live, for you, for your recruitment, your career advancement.

You can be one of the last peer group members

| 13-12-2018 |

Under 20% of the treasury population completed a formal treasury education. And over 50% of decision makers in the recruitment of treasurers does not know about the discipline.

We are one of the launching partners of the Treasurer Test that can bring an objective measurement that can tackle problems resulting from the described issue. Others are the Vrije Universiteit (Amsterdam), the University of Applied Sciences of Utrecht, software & assessment developers and law experts.

Key element of the test is the comparison with peer groups. These groups are defined by number of years of experience in treasury of its’ members. Our role as launching partner is asking 100 relevant peer group members that will create the benchmark that future testees will be compared with. Peer group members do not pay the €595 the test will cost when ready, but only €1,21. We carefully invited most, but there are still a few places left, especially in the group with under 9 years’ experience.

When the number of 100 is reached, reports will be sent out and the Treasurer Test is ready for use. We expect a lot. At Treasurer Search we will use the test in our committed searches and many other situations, when relevant. First expectation is to further improve the match making process. Also in choosing education, coaching, outplacement, team formation and salary benchmarking the test can come in handy. Perhaps even showing a CFO about the complexity of the discipline can be done. There is a peer group “no treasury experience”.

We look forward to the analysis that can be made after a bigger group of people completed the test What will we see in the correlation between age, education level, nationality on one hand and treasury skills level on the other? We expect to further contribute in raising the level of corporate treasury and hope you will join us.
