Customer Success Stories

OSF: Rapid Growth Demands Aggressive Recruiting Strategy

OSF Global Services uses eSkill assessments to measure the specific technical skills needed for its varied IT professional positions. This has allowed them to reduce the costs of the selection process by 64% and the time spent by 68%.

Read the Case Study

"Our strategic partnership with eSkill has most helped us in terms of recruitment for jobs which demand very specific and measurable skills, such as that of an IT programmer. The specifically targeted online assessments helped us set up entire teams of professional programmers who have taken our business to the next level and have contributed to establishing long-lasting business relationships with our clients.We found that administering eSkill tests offered all the information we needed when hiring, and was a great economic solution."

ORVIS: Explore the Integration of eSkill Online Tests with Taleo

The Orvis Company needed a more efficient recruiting process to support staffing for their busy call center. We provided exactly what Orvis needed by integrating the eSkill testing center with their Taleo platform, and helping them streamline the entire process.

Read the Case Study

"We did demos with maybe six other companies, and eSkill kept coming to the top, because of the flexibility, the integration into our Taleo application process, and then being able to use it in other areas of the company. Before, we had so many open loops that we couldn’t close because they were out of our control. Now, after integrating our Taleo system with eSkill, we’re able to move into the process immediately and we have scores in hand. It’s a 100% improvement in the time reduction."

Wanda Hatchett, Contact Center Scheduling Coordinator/Recruiter


ZAPPOS: A Culture of Success Through Customer Service

Zappos uses eSkill to screen candidates for their most critical positions: Content Managers and Customer Service Representatives. They credit eSkill with helping them maintain the highest customer service levels while avoiding turnover.

Read the Case Study

"The wide variety and customizability of eSkill’s online testing allows us to pre-screen many of our candidates before they even get in the door. And this is key, because once a potential hire shows he/she possesses the skills necessary to do the job, our recruiters can concentrate on the second – and equally important – part of the screening process: the cultural fit. eSkill helps us assess a high volume of candidates in a fast, easy and efficient way."

Christa Foley, Recruiting Manager
