Buyer’s Guide: How to Select the Best Skills Testing Provider for Your Company

Companies can use skills testing in a variety of ways:

  1. Pre-employment skills assessment tests
  2. Benchmarking current skills sets
  3. Evaluating internal talent for new positions
  4. Identify skills gaps
  5. Assess results of training

A skills test provides a standardized and objective method for evaluating job candidates and employees.

Human resources (HR) teams and hiring managers also find that skills testing can significantly decrease the amount of time and cost it takes to hire someone. For example, companies using eSkill for their skills assessment tests can reduce the time-to-hire by 60% and the cost of evaluations by up to 70%.

Using a skills test can also lead to faster onboarding and training. When recruits have the right skills for the job, they get up to speed faster.
