Assess which candidates have the modern skills to thrive

Hiring and retaining professionals comes at a cost.

Replacing an employee that leaves costs a third of their salary on average.

Despite the sums involved, even successful recruiters expect an error rate of 40%.

Assessing candidates before hiring them can give employers confidence that new recruits have what it takes to boost productivity and are compatible with company culture. It ensures that new hires have the modern skills to fit in and deliver effectively.

By assessing new joiners during the onboarding process, employers can be confident that people are learning what they should. Effective onboarding can boost staff retention by as much as 50%.1

Test skills pre-hire

Ensure that recruits have the skills to hit the ground running. CVs often fail to reveal a candidate’s true skill set.

Pre-screen aptitude and attitude

Assessments can show if candidates have the potential to learn about new products. They can indicate who has the right attitude to fit seamlessly into the team culture.

Create onboarding plans

A clear read of a new hire’s current experiences and skills makes it easier for managers to anticipate what will be required from an induction program.

Predict future training needs

Through understanding a candidate’s current abilities, employers can predict which skills will need to be further developed.

Some tests can identify high potential candidates and predict how likely they are to rise within the business. One example is Questionmark Thinking Skills by Cambridge Assessment which tests problem-solving and critical thinking.
