To find the right talent, smart companies are taking every possible opportunity to interview job seekers. Whether you utilize in house recruitment personnel or outsource to a recruitment agency, the results are often inconsistent.
Our assessments take the guesswork out of recruitment by helping you identify the right people with the right mix of skills, abilities, interests and job match before you hire them.
Increase Your Chances for Success in Recruitment
A recent study showed that the correlation between the ability to deliver well in a job interview and the ability to do well on the job is just 14 percent, or one good employee out of every seven people you hire. If you or your recruitment agency has found itself in a similar position, there are proven methods to improve this average. The same study considered these methods.
Background Checks – The 14 percent increases to 26 percent if the candidate passes a series of employee background checks.
Personality Tests – If that 26 percent, or roughly one out of four, is still not a big enough percentage for you, consider traditional assessment tools used in the hiring process. These assessments measure personality characteristics. Personality tests raised the rate of success in hiring to 38 percent.
Abilities Assessments – When applicants were tested for both abilities and personality, employers found they were hiring the right people just over half or about 54 percent of the time.
Interest Assessments – To take it one step further, the study considered interest assessments, an even more sophisticated tool. This raised the successful hiring rate to 66 percent.
Job Match Assessments – The study found that the most impressive and successful assessments are integrated measures of a combination of factors, and also include the concept of job match. They use cutting-edge technology combined with empirical data to evaluate the candidate against employees who are exemplary in performing their duties. These recruitment assessments increased an employer’s ability to identify excellent candidates more than 75 percent of the time.
