Assess which candidates have the skills and character to thrive

Hiring new professionals comes at a cost. According to studies the true cost for bringing in new talent – such as a lawyer or accountant – could be anything from $4000 – $21,000. The figure rises substantially for senior positions.

Despite the sums involved, even successful recruiters expect an error rate of 40%.

Assessing candidates pre-hire can give employers confidence that new recruits have what it takes to boost productivity and are compatible with company culture. After implementing assessment technology, 76% of corporations have seen an increase in the quality of hire.

Tests and assessments shed light on future training needs, support onboarding and help to mitigate risk.

Test skills pre-hire

Ensure that recruits have the skills to hit the ground running. CVs often fail to reveal a candidate’s true skill set.

Pre-screen aptitude and attitude

Assessments can show if candidates have the potential to learn about new products. They can indicate who has the right attitude to fit seamlessly into the team culture.

Create onboarding plans

A clear read of a new hire’s current experiences and skills makes it easier for managers to anticipate what will be required from an induction programme.

Predict future training needs

Through understanding a candidate’s current abilities, employers can predict which skills will need to be further developed.

Identify high potential

Some tests can identify high potential candidates and predict how likely they are to rise within the business. One example is Questionmark Thinking Skills by Cambridge Assessment which tests problem-solving and critical thinking.
