Online Hiring Assessments: A Quick Rendezvous

by Steve Hopper Content Writer

Online Hiring Assessments also known as pre-employment assessments, provide an accurate way of assessing the competencies, personality traits and overall job fit of candidates. Not only does it save time, but the assessment results are available immediately. 

Employees are often the biggest assets of a business organization. This is why hiring managers can't afford to make mistakes in talent selection. The productivity of a High Performer is often 200% or 300% higher than an average performer.  When the goal is hiring the right candidates for the job, Online Hiring Assessments will help you identify high performers versus average or low performers. In fact, high impact talent management will allow you to replace your low performers with high performers consistently. We call this, “Reversing the 80/20 rule.” 

Saves time

Pre-interview talent assessments will save a great deal of time. They also help you focus your hiring interview questions on the areas where the candidate does not fit the job.  Most importantly, you are not interviewing candidates who are not likely to become high performers.  You are quickly able to assemble a “short list” of candidates that fit your high performer models or benchmarks. 

Quantifiable assessment

When a candidate completes an online hiring assessment, their talents are matched numerically to a model of proven high performers. We call this job match number, the Overall Job Fit Percentage.  Online Hiring Assessments use standardized methods that can identify the core competencies and personality traits that are similar to other high performers.

Automated process

One of the best perks of Online Hiring Assessments is that you don't need to be in front of the candidate to apply the process.  You do have to design an assessment strategy and put it into action. An assessment link is sent to your candidate, and when they complete the assessment, the report will automatically show up in the Hiring Manager’s email.  When comparing several candidates, it is easier to see which one shows the most potential for the job.

High Performer Models

Building a High Performer Model begins with identifying the human qualities, competencies, and talents that your high performing employees have in common.  Through a brief study of the current high performers, we are able to identify the key characteristics driving their performance, whether it be personality traits such as assertiveness or extroversion, aptitudes in areas such as critical-thinking or creative problem solving, or combinations of personality traits and cognitive abilities.

Online Hiring Assessments are the hallmark of modern talent selection processes. Using these online assessment methods in combination with a targeted recruitment strategy will facilitate more successful hiring. Start today by establishing a model of the high performer.  Create a profile of your ideal candidate. The benefits of online hiring assessments include:


·          Selecting more top performers

·         Better team fit

·         Better manager fit

·         Lower turnover

·         Higher productivity

·         Longer tenure
