A candidate assessment is a process where a would-be employer evaluates the skills, experience, and qualification of candidates via assessments such as an interview, written examination, work sample test, or psychometric test. With the world of work constantly changing, organisations can face several challenges when it comes to recruitment assessment and the candidate assessment process. Candidate assessment services support an organisation’s search for top talent, finding the best and most diverse people available. Candidate assessment takes care of everything from interview and recruitment assessment design through to training of hiring managers and hosting assessment centres.
Candidate assessment services give a rich insight into the available candidate pool. Recruitment assessment methods allow you to take a data-driven approach to recruitment, resulting in:
A fairer assessment method
Faster decision-making with better results
Hiring people who better understand and fit your organisation
A system whereby the diversity of your hires can be tracked
A better candidate experience
Recruitment assessment can actually cut your organisation’s recruitment costs. Investing in candidate assessment will result in a more efficient, effective recruitment process. Using psychometric tests can dramatically reduce your time to hire as decisions can be made based on data, while pre-employment recruitment assessment results in an increased quality of hire and better retention rates, both of which are cost-effective in the long-term.
Recruitment assessment tools can include everything AI and automation, such as interview question generators or screening tools, to psychometric testing and gamified assessments.
The vast majority of businesses, across all sectors, use recruitment assessment methods.
A blended recruitment assessment is a combination of two or more assessment methods. Blended recruitment assessment methods offer a more realistic reflection of work life, allowing organisations to get a more rounded assessment of each candidate. Bringing together multiple psychological and task requirements allows recruitment assessments to achieve better outcomes.
Recruitment assessments provide a standardised, data driven set of results for every candidate, regardless of their background. This eliminates biases based on factors such as education, gender, race or age.
