In today’s world, it is harder than ever to attract high quality job candidates. Companies of all sizes are competing against each other trying to hire the best engineers, developers, sales force, marketers, and support teams. A majority of the modern day recruitment processes use pre-employment skill testing as an integral part of their hiring strategy. However, the catch here is getting candidates to give their assessments. Candidates, especially millennial find it too taxing to give an assessment test. The same is true for lateral hiring.
In order to measure the effectiveness of your hiring strategy, accurate metrics are needed. This data is invaluable; it can improve the hiring experience for your team and candidates, save your department money and prove your value to your organization. One of the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) when using an assessment tool is the weekly usage data. Visibility of your most important metrics helps teams stay on the same page, monitor changing metrics, and make the changes as required.

They make life so much easier by automating all the manual and repetitive tasks – adding resumes, tracking job closure status, managing candidate submissions, email communication, interview scheduling, and more.
