In today’s world, you need to be able to do everything fast. That includes getting your talent staff lined out. You want to be able to hire the right people, but you need to do it fast. This requires having the right pre-assessments in place that will help you locate the best talent for your business that will complement your business goals.
But where do you find a tool that will put all of this in place for you?
Aggregation of Data
One of the most confusing and challenging parts of this process is the immense amount of work and time it takes to find, recruit, and train new employees. It is estimated that companies spend over $3300 per new hire per year just for the recruiting process alone. (Forbes Magazine) Additional revenue is needed to train, help, support, and hire these new recruits. Collectively, businesses spend over $72 billion (that’s billion, with a “B”) to get and keep good employees. This is an exorbitant expense that needs to be lowered if possible so that you can increase your ROI and maximize your company productivity. If companies have a high turnover rate, this figure will be even higher.
What is needed?
So what is needed to shift this trend away from spending so many thousands of dollars per year in finding, training, and hiring new talent? You need to start with the right assessments. If you can find the right tools to measure what you need to measure and correlate this with what you need in your business, you’ll be on the right track.
Types of Assessments You Need for the Best Online Talent Assessment
There are several types of assessments you need in place to find the best candidates for the jobs you need to fill.
Before you hire anyone, it is important to understand the essential qualities that you are looking for in your HR recruiting pool. Filter out undesirables quickly and efficiently by designing a pre-hiring test that will show who makes the grade and who doesn’t.
One of the other essential qualities of the candidates you choose is that they will understand the standards and the processes you hold essential in your business. Even if applicants possess skills that are needed for the job, they may not have an adequate understanding of what you require within your organization. By having important induction assessments in place, you can weed out those whose personalities or other qualities may not fit within your organization or fine-tune and retrain those who have a lack of knowledge of your business practices but who have the other qualities you need for the position you are seeking to fill.
Training assessments help select the candidates that will pass the first step of the hiring process for your HR. By filtering out those who don’t have the basic or technical skills needed for the job, the training assessments you give should reflect the most important skills that you need applicants to possess within your business at the training level.
Whoever you hire, you will need a way to appraise their performance and skills. This will allow you to evaluate their skills as related to their particular job or position within your company. A good appraisal or evaluator assessment should measure qualities such as:
- Knowledge and competence
- Ability to adapt to special situations
Lateral Hiring Assessments
One of the best types of assessments to ensure real and unbiased decision-making in your hiring process is to have a lateral hiring measurement in place. These tests focus on getting quality in candidates without the politics that sometimes surrounds the hiring process in the real world.
You can learn a lot from people who are leaving your organization, as well as people who have just joined you. Having a formal assessment in place for employees to fill out before leaving can give you a wealth of information about what works and doesn’t work within your business so that you can improve things within your organization for the future.
Other Types of Assessment Tools
Think about the power your business could harness also using extra tools such as online surveys and contests. These sorts of tools help you to read the minds of your stakeholders to see how they feel your business is doing, as well as to assess how it can be improved. Online contests can breed excitement for your business among employees and patrons as well, and help take your brand to higher pinnacles of success.
