Skillsarena, the Chelmsford-based online talent management solutions provider, has today announced the release of its brand-new employment tests created exclusively for the housing industry.
Rise in enquiries for housing industry tests
A noticeable rise in enquiries regarding pre-employment and skills testing from care providers, housing associations, local authorities and service providers resulted in the company launching a dedicated platform to serve the needs of this sector more closely. Jason Pierce, Skillsarena's Managing Director commented: “Although we cover all business sectors and industries, one area we now specialise in is providing pre-employment assessments for positions in the housing industry.” “Our extensive library of ready to use housing employment tests, makes us a leader in our field. No waiting for tests to be created, they are available instantly from our online platform.” “We now provide dedicated tests for a variety of housing positions and areas including contact centres, care and support, finance, property services, housing operations and housing options.” “Alongside these tailored tests we also offer our bank of popular core skills assessments which evaluate literacy, numeracy and competency using the Microsoft Office suite of products such as Word and Excel.”
Why you should consider using housing industry tests
Hiring the wrong employee can be costly. Employers who undertake assessments as part of their recruitment process make better hiring decisions. They have a more comprehensive overall evaluation of the candidate and are aware of the skill gaps. Adopting recruitment technology also means you can assess multiple candidates all at once in a proficient and cost-effective way. Skillsarena also offer other recruitment tools including personality profiling (alternative to psychometric testing), situational judgement tests and various staff developmental initiatives including team workshops and 360 Degree Feedback. This is one reason why the company believes clients return to them time after time. Jason concludes: “We are extremely proud of the fact that over 98% of customers choose to work with us year after year. Our supportive, knowledgeable and non-pressurised approach is what they welcome.”
