Industry-Leading Skills Tests

Use Skills Tests to Verify Candidates Can Do the Job, and to Identify Training Gaps.

If you hire an employee who doesn’t have the knowledge or experience to do a job according to your expectations, productivity suffers as well as team morale. This is why more and more companies are incorporating skills testing in all phases of their recruiting and hiring process. In fact, according to a survey by the American Management Association, almost 90% of firms surveyed said they will not hire candidates when a job skills assessment finds them to be deficient in basic skills.

Companies that use skills assessments often reduce their cost of hiring by 70% and time to hire by 60% because they can easily identify candidates who have the knowledge and experience to do the job. For example, the Sitel Group, which offers an array of integrated business services, implemented job skills assessments to measure candidates’ cognitive reasoning ability and built a top-flight insurance sales team. Download the case study to learn how they did it.

Companies also use skills testing to manage employee training and development needs because they can easily pinpoint and address knowledge “gaps.” For example, Banner Health, one of the largest hospital systems in the U.S., used skills assessments to identify staff training needs when it purchased new electrocardiography (ECG) monitoring equipment.
