Assessing Staff

asses staff and reduce cost of hire

Assess staff to avoid hiring the wrong candidate

Hiring the wrong employee can be costly. Employers who use testing to asses staff make better hiring and development decisions. They have a more comprehensive overall evaluation of the candidate. What’s more they are aware of any skill gaps before they decide whether or not to hire them.

A bad hire costs a business an average of £8,200

Assess staff with testing

Selecting the right candidates includes two main processes- shortlisting and assessing. It is a crucial stage in the overall recruitment process.

A vast number of applications may arrive, many of which will be unsuitable in some shape or form.

Selection is the process whereby you impartially reduce the number of applicants to a manageable quality candidate pool.

Using testing to asses staff, allows you to objectively measure and select candidates based on their suitability of skills for the role.

Testing can also be used as part of a training need analysis when looking at ways to develop staff.

Benefits of assessing staff

Using testing to assess staff

The Recruitment & Selection Funnel demonstrates a typical recruitment process when utilising pre-employment testing.

At the earlier stages, high volumes of candidates can be assessed and sifted out in order to reduce the candidate pool size significantly. Then at the later stages, the focus turns to selecting the best candidates for the role itself.

At Skillsarena we can work with you at each stage by providing you with different products and services.
