Ask Dr. Fred Rafilson About Assessments

Published: August 12, 2022 In: Assessments

Assessments provide key insights beyond a candidate’s resume. They can verify the knowledge and skills a candidate possess. They can be used to quantify factors such as communication skills, behaviors, motivations, and more. They can be used to determine the level of cultural fit between a candidate and an organization.

The bottom line? Companies use assessments to predict future work performance. This can be useful for both hiring and internal mobility, such as lateral or promotional role change within the organization. 

Below are a few videos from the Ask Dr. Fred series. 

We Use Assessments, But Still Have Poor Work Performance? 

Organizations rely on pre-hire skill assessments to gauge a candidate's future performance, but frequently overlook the value of behavioral assessments for personality, motivation, and attitude. This oversight can render your hiring process less effective and efficient.

Not Having Success Hiring the Best Employees? 

Too often, organizations overlook the value of assessments for other aspects such as communication, personality, behavior, and motivation. This can negatively impact the cost per hire, time to hire, and the overall quality of hire. 

Employee Retention - Will Assessments Help? 

We all know the goal of any hiring process is to fill an urgently needed role at the organization. Retaining your best employees remains the single most effective strategy to maintaining operational efficiency. Using assessments for aspects such as personality, behavioral tendencies, and other factors that influence employee performance and cultural fit can significantly improve employee retention.
