Webinar: Transforming recruitment and hiring with online testing

Did you know that 80 percent of employee turnover is a result of poor hiring practices? With turnover costs as high as $20,000 per exiting employee, improving the screening and testing process is a priority for every HR professional.

In this webinar, Dr. Glen Budgell, PhD senior strategic HR advisor at HRSG, will demonstrate how online testing is making the hiring process easier and more effective.

Here is a snippet of what will be covered in the webcast.

How can online testing transform recruitment and hiring?

Online testing has transformed the recruitment and hiring landscape in many ways. The days in which employers were limited to local talent is over: online tests can be administered at the click of a button to job candidates in remote regions, thereby increasing both the diversity of the talent pool and the inclusiveness of the work place. Standardized testing (whether paper-pencil or computer-based) provides job candidates with a sense of fairness in the hiring process.  When you combine this sense of fairness with an innovative online test that is both job relevant and engaging, you really “wow!” the job candidate

What are some best practices that are important to developing a strong assessment process?

Traditional testing best practices are always relevant, and we strongly urge our clients to conduct the required job/task analysis before choosing or building an employment test. In addition, and especially if the test is being built in house, it should be ensured that the test is both job relevant and linked to the abilities/skills identified in the job analysis.

Of course, online / computer-based testing has introduced a myriad of other challenges. Companies must ensure that the testing software they use is secure and candidate data is protected. We rely on the expertise of Questionmark to provide our clients with the required security and data protection features mandated by the ISO and ICT standards.

Furthermore, we share with our client’s methods and best practices for cheating prevention and analysis, monitoring the web for leaked test content, and most importantly, providing candidate’s with technical support and accessibility features when required.
