With the pandemic causing seismic shifts in the economy, millions of Americans are searching for jobs, which creates opportunities for companies to upgrade their talent to face the challenges ahead. Inundated with applicants, hiring managers and HR need a way to remotely pre-screen applicants to make the best hiring choices.
“In the coming year, hiring companies will be overwhelmed with job applicants, due to layoffs and the ease of applying online,” says Ken Crowell, founder and CEO of EmployTest, provider of customizable pre-employment screening assessments. “They will need an independent way to choose the best applicants. Our tests will help them with that process.”
EmployTest administers more than 60,000 tests to job applicants each year. More than 7,000 corporate and government organizations across the US and globally have used its assessments to make intelligent hiring decisions and avoid millions of dollars in hiring mistakes.
EmployTest offers a wide variety of assessments in office and administrative, technological, and vocational skills, including Attention to Detail Tests and Microsoft Word Tests, plus behavioral profiles for customer service, management, professional, and workplace success. Many tests can be customized to help organizations identify the best candidates for their specific job positions.
“Pre-employment job testing is a crucial need as companies recruit more remote workers. Employers need to be able to know that the people they hire have not only the technical skills required, but also that they can analyze and solve problems, communicate effectively, and work both independently and as part of a team,” Ken says.
