The Benefits Testing Potential Employees Before They Are Hired
Employers have long required that employees submit certain information. However, the traditional method of these submissions, including resumes and in-person interviews, does not garner the best results. In fact, nearly half foster outright lies. This is why agencies have developed pre-employment assessment tools, so they can gain the insight needed for each employee before they are hired. Here are some of the benefits of using such tools.
Studies have shown that companies who hire employees based on pre-employment screening have seen increased productivity from their workforce. This can be attributed to the fact they are no longer hiring blindly, but rather using proven scientific methods to fill their staff.
Decrease In Employee Turnover
When pre-employment assessment tools are used to complete the hiring process, there is a measurable decrease in employees prematurely leaving the company. This can be attributed to hiring only employees who have been proven to be a good fit, rather than hiring employees who “talk a good game” and then find out the job is not quite what they were expecting or who have misrepresented themselves in some way.
Increased Hiring Efficiency
Companies have also noted that requiring aptitude testing at the beginning of the application process goes a long way towards filtering out the “application spammers” who simply apply to everything with very little to no thought about what they are even applying for.
