The Importance of pre-employment and candidate assessment in the recruiting process
Traditional Recruitment practices face many challenges:
• Time is of the essence: When recruitment is based on face-to-face or online interviews, coordination requires much time and resources. Online, Pre-employment screening practices can save a lot of time and related costs.
• Making Hiring decisions: Choosing the best fit for a position and the company culture, amongst many seemingly suitable candidates, can be quite the challenge. Using a candidate assessment system as part of the recruiting process helps pinpoint the advantages and disadvantages – and support hiring decisions based on data.
• Bias and Subjectivity: The interview, despite attempts to control for inherent bias, is a limited tool that favors positive interactions over objective suitability to the job requirements. Many suitable applicants may therefore be overlooked when companies rely on the interview as a recruitment and assessment tool.
• Process Management: Valid Data collection and analysis is a challenge when recruitment practices rely solely on the interview. Data is oftentimes lost in the process and of such; it becomes difficult to manage the recruitment process efficiently.
• Complex process: Many companies apply multiple interviews as part of their hiring practices. Such a long and exhausting process wastes valuable time and money for the company and in parallel may exhaust the candidate who may seek employment elsewhere. Using a flexible online assessment system with multiple sources of data will help you save valuable time and provide accurate and relevant data to inform decision making.
So, why use online assessment?
• Convenience: Candidates can schedule their online assessment on their own. The flexibility allows the candidate to take the test at their own convenience and saves much needed time and money on the recruitment side.
