Assess Applicants & Employees

Few forces are as potent as proficient personnel to sustaining an employer’s long-run success. Candidate screening and selection decisions yield a talented workforce or accelerate failure. The reliability and validity of trainee assessment tools evidence or mask program effectiveness. Unique challenges characterize selection, development, and evaluation but all HR decisions are underpinned or undermined by the reliable and valid assessment of abilities and performance.

All employers use some form of explicit or implicit assessment to screen, select, and train new employees and all assessment yields a unique data signature that can be mined for evidence. Most accept without question, however, their form of assessment is worth the investment. This is apparent in the go to selection method, the interview, despite a mountain of evidence suggesting unstructured interviews are not predictive and yield a net negative present value. It takes an average of 22-days for an interview process that findings suggest is seldom predictive.
