The Recruitment Screening Challenge
How can you screen job applicants in a way that ensures they participate in the process and have a positive experience irrespective of the outcome?
In a competitive job market, if applicants are forced to travel to a specific location on a set date for an interview or assessment, they may drop out of the process, especially if they have to travel significant distances. Co-ordinating and scheduling such appointments can also add delays to the overall process, increasing the likelihood that applicants will take up alternative offers.
So how do the recruiters of the future screen candidates in a way that is flexible, convenient and reflects well on the organisation? This is where TestReach can help.
TestReach for Recruitment
TestReach is a cloud-based solution that fully supports the candidate screening process, by providing a comprehensive range of assessments covering everything from situational fluency, knowledge and decision-making through to behaviour and psychometrics. Running timed situational tests on an innovative platform like TestReach reflects well on the organisation, and the results help managers objectively determine which of the candidates really has the right capabilities to do the job.
There are many different ways to provide these assessments within TestReach, and one option is ‘remote invigilation’ – this is when a screening test is run online, and the candidate is monitored in real-time over the web by a trained supervisor, who connects to the candidate using video, audio and remote screenshare. This ensures that the correct person has presented to do the test and that they did not cheat. You can therefore be confident that the result is a true reflection of the individual’s capabilities.
Easily create online tests addressing situational fluency, knowledge, competencies, decision making behaviour and psychometrics.
Over 50 question types that allow for comprehensive assessment, with option of record voice and video playback.
You can run timed tests with specific tasks to be done to determine if a candidate has the right capabilities for a job e.g. write specific email, fill out figures in spreadsheet.
For the duration of the test, TestReach supervisors can check ID and remotely supervise candidates via video, audio and remote screen share.
Candidates can download or upload information, such as a PowerPoint presentation, or evidence of qualifications.
