Recruit employees – time & money

All organisations need to recruit at some point in time. However recruiting employees is not a cheap process, especially if you get it wrong. This is why we recommend using pre employment tests as part of your recruitment process.


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


Most companies underestimate the cost of recruitment by 90-95%

How can I reduce the cost to recruit employees?

When you are recruiting employees a vast number of completed applications forms and CVs may arrive. Many of which may 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.

Testing enables you to objectively measure and select candidates based on their suitability for the role. The more suitable they are the higher the chance of them being successful within your organisation. Therefore reducing the likelihood of them leaving and you having to repeat the recruitment process once more.

Testing also allows you identify the training needs of individuals, whether they are current employees or those you are looking to recruit.

Using pre-employment tests when recruiting employees

The Recruitment and Selection Funnel demonstrates a typical process when recruiting employees.

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

Once you have successfully recruited your candidates, we offer various employee development tools which can be used throughout the employee life-cycle.
