Why do you need Call Centre Industry skill tests?

Are you 100% certain that your applicants have customer service skills? Call Centres typically recruit often and in high volumes. If you’re hiring for a position requiring skills specifically for a Call Centre environment such as understanding the Phonetic Alphabet, scenario-based Customer Service or recording Town Names, then our pre-employment and development assessments that cover a fully comprehensive range are exactly what you need to ensure your job applicants have what it takes before you hire them. It’s fast, efficient and will give you confidence to make a smarter hiring decision. Or do you want to re-train your existing employees? Provide them with the relevant skills they need to improve their day-to-day work.

Overview of Call Centre Tests

These pre-built assessments enable you to identify and evidence the candidate skills set required to perform in a Call Centre or help desk environment. A number of assessments in the Call Centre module simulate the operatives’ environment by playing audio data. Other tests check agents’ specific knowledge or assessing ability to accurately record data, and these all can be tailored to individual organisations if required.

Customer benefits?

Separate assessments are specifically designed around subject matters. These allow you to easily identify and assign the appropriate assessment for the role or subject knowledge required. This also allows the results to be presented specifically for the subject or skill being measured providing you with a clear and comparable output for each candidate.

The Call Centre module can be utilised at each stage of the employee life cycle from recruitment through to performance and training. Each assessment within this module includes a comprehensive report with percentiles enabling the user to rank the candidates skill against that of other in the company and worldwide.

Candidate benefits?

Assigning the appropriate subject assessment to the candidate minimises the length of the assessment, eliminates the need for the candidate to have to answer unnecessary / unrelated questions and ensures the results presented are accurate to that subject being measured.
