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.


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

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

How can I use Recruitment Testing to reduce the cost of recruiting 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. This is where we recommend that you adopt a recruitment skills test platform to reduce the number of applicants to a more manageable number.

Recruitment 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.

Recruitment Testing also allows you identify the training needs of individuals.

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. This can all be done through a recruitment skills test platform.

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