Skills and aptitude tests such as this provide a non-biased, streamlined way for employers to assess an applicant's skill levels. Traditionally, recruiters would have to rely on an applicant's CV to see whether they would be appropriate for the role. However this can sometimes result in inaccurate hires as they may not have the right skill levels in practice. Our SJT, as with our other available skills assessments, removes that element of guesswork so employers can see from very early on whether applicants have the necessary skills needed to complete tasks and excel in the role.
This SJT can also aid in creating more efficient and effective training for your existing workforce. The assessment allows you to take practice tests before taking a final test, which means candidates can learn additional skills as they take the test several times. Using the SJT as a training aid also helps employers in creating a more cost-efficient development programme as there would be no need to hire external trainers or travel to external assessment centres.
Employers can also use this test as a way to monitor their employees' productivity levels. These tests are an excellent measure of your team's current performance as well as how they are progressing and upskilling. By having an accurate measure of performance, employers and HR managers will be able to make more thoughtful decisions in terms of hires, promotions, and developing training programmes.
