What is Pre-Employment Skills Testing?

Pre-Employment skills testing is what the phrase suggests. Prior to the actual employment, candidates are screened for basic employability. Resumes are perused for basic qualifications and validation. A set of candidates are filtered and they are called in for a face-2-face interview. Before the interview process, the candidate’s skills are assessed by asking them to write a test that tests basic skills of the candidate. All of these pre-employment activities take considerable time and the skill assessment tests take a huge chunk of it.

With the help of a reliable and well designed skill testing software, you can save the time spent manually administering these tests every year.

Statistics suggest that at least 30% of the monthly cost is spent on the recruitment process and some large organizations spend as much as 40% on hiring and retaining the right candidates.

This is a cost that most companies continue to incur on an annual basis and many times, this just goes under the carpet. The assumption is that a majority of the organizations have a dedicated HR team and opine that it wouldn’t hurt to keep on hiring again and again. Apart from the investment made, an improper skill testing program and recruitment process would affect

  • the retention of talented employees in a team
  • the strength of a team as experienced individuals leave the team
  • the quality of work done as wrong candidates are hired
  • the HR team’s performance as the pre-employment skills testing process is inefficient
  • your company as you might miss on the best candidates because the process was not scalable and efficient
