What Are Employee Assessment Tests?
Employee Assessment tests basically fall into one of two categories. The first, known as Pre-Employment testing, are tests used in the interview and hiring process to screen potential new applicants. These tests vary on the industry but are mainly used to gauge a potential candidate’s knowledge and current skill level. The second type of test goes by many names: Employee Competency Test, Job Assessment Test, Job Skills Test, Workforce Skills Assessment, etc... etc... These tests are just like pre-employment tests with the main difference being that they are designed to test and analyze current employee knowledge, skill set, and capabilities.
Benefits of Pre-Employment Testing
It seems that almost anyone who has been in the role of interviewer in their lifetime has had a candidate who really stood out in their interview process; answered questions quickly and thoroughly, spoke confidently, gave good examples and all-in-all seemed like the perfect future employee. However, once hired, the now employee who did so well in their interview isn’t doing so well on the job. Pre-Employment testing is the perfect complement to the interview process and can give the company a much clearer picture about each candidate’s potential. Aside from finding better candidates, Pre-Employment testing can lead to many other company benefits: Lower turnover, cost savings from the time saved, increased morale and an overall more competent workforce.
