Why Clients Choose eSkill Pre-Employment Skills Tests

Assessment Benefits


The right person in the right role can make or break your company’s performance. This means you need:

  • To know the candidate before you hire them. The more you know about how a candidate will perform in a role before you hire them, the better hiring decisions you’ll make.
  • To increase your chances of a strong  job fit. Fit is determined not just by prior experience but by having the right skills, aptitude, and behavioral characteristics to fit and succeed in the role.


eSkill offers the most accurate pre-employment skills tests for selection and skills gap assessment so that you can minimize your risk, cost, and lost opportunity of a mis-hire.

Assessments help you minimize risk – in the event of an issue you need defensible compliance for your hiring decisions.

  • Reduce the cost of a bad hire – According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the price of a bad hire is at least 30 percent of the employee’s first-year earnings and longer term from 5 to 27 times the amount of the person’s actual salary.
  • Reduce lost time and opportunity – Using eSkill assessments reduces time to hire by 60%. On average this represents 16 hours per candidate.
  • Reach aggressive recruiting targets by reducing the time-to-hire from more than 30 days to just 10-14 days.
  • Reduce the cost to hire – Using eSkill assessments reduces the costs of evaluations by 70%. On average this represents at least $600 per candidate.

Hiring right the first time means you don’t lose business opportunities as a result of a mis-hire.
