Research shows employee interviews are only 14% accurate in predicting future performance. Putting together a team that is talented, motivated and works well together requires assessing individuals in a selection manner which reveals their personality, motivation, intellect, skills and abilities. By applying research and knowledge, we take the guesswork out of this selection process. Corporate Insights’ Pre-hire Selection Assessment Program & Testing Services is designed to evaluate the match between a candidate’s background, skills and abilities, and the requirements of the particular job. We use our knowledge of your organization’s business plans, strategies, culture and market to make an assessment of the candidate’s suitability for employment.
The Assessment Program
This is a one-half day program during which candidates complete an intensive assessment testing process, involving a personal interview and a battery of tests and questionnaires designed to measure the skills and abilities noted below. This program can be modified to assess candidates via our online testing service. In this situation the time requirement is from one to two hours.
- Intellectual skills
- Decision-making skills
- Motivation and drive for results
- Interpersonal skills
- Leadership abilities
- Influencing skills
- Teamwork skills
- Organization and planning skills
- Stress resilience
- Career goals and objectives
- Creativity and strategic thinking skills
All candidates hired receive feedback, including a copy of their evaluation, which is initially sent directly to the client organization. During the feedback session, candidates are given the opportunity to discuss their test results of the assessment. In addition to addressing critical selection issues, assessments identify personal and professional development needs. Candidates who are hired may then implement a development program with the assistance of their manager and Human Resources. This method has been validated over a number of years and has proven record of enhancing performance and reducing turnover.
