Companies are always looking for ways to determine just how effective and capable candidates can be in the workplace before they start. On paper, candidates have indicated that they can code in Python and Java or can resolve any customer service problem, but how do their skill sets compare with internal success standards, let alone everyday coding or service expectations? Thatís where pre-hire assessments can be so valuable. They provide extensive insights into candidatesí skill sets, strengths, struggles, ideal working environments, and more. Top companies understand just how worthwhile such a resource is for making informed hiring decisions. In fact, Best-in-Class organizations are 45% more likely than All Others to use pre-hire assessments as part of the hiring process. Greater insights about candidates can be a game changer for the future success of any company.

While there isnít a one-size-fits-all pre-hire assessment approach to fit in with every companyís talent acquisition process, there are most certainly a variety of ways companies can make use of them to ensure that they hire the most suitable, most skilled, most culturally appropriate employees. Once in place and applied to the necessary phases of the process, businesses will often start to see incredible return on investments.
