“The key for us, number one, has always been hiring very smart people.”
– Bill Gates, Microsoft
In today’s world, the ability to recruit the brightest people in the market is a huge competitive advantage. But recruiting developers and managers can be a tough ask especially with open positions taking a minimum of 60 days to close.
There are 3 Key metrics you need to manage as a recruiter. Yes, just these 3:
- Time to Hire
- Cost to Hire
- Candidate Experience
While take-home challenges and hackathons have their own set of advantages, only a well-designed Pre-Employment Assessment enables HR teams to achieve improvement in all the above 3 metrics.
Using vast improvements in the field of AI and HR Tech, here’s how you can benefit from using Online Assessments to automate your recruitment.
Make screening a breeze
Receiving a huge pile of applicant CV’s after putting out that job on multiple job boards?
Recruiters spend over 100 hours reviewing CVs and phone screening applicants. Save yourself from going through each and every CV. Spend more time on the serious and interested candidates by filtering them first. Do not use their CVs as a criterion, let their skills speak for them. After all, it is the work that counts.
Invite applicants to take up the Interact Pre-Built Assessments to verify their core skills. The process helps filter incompetent candidates. Never miss out on technically strong applicants who have skills but lack an embellished CV.
Remove Hiring Bias
Recent studies have proved unconscious bias in hiring processes all over the world. Whether they are voluntary or involuntary, they do impact the efficiency of the workplace.
Most organizations suffer from a historically high hiring failure rate of ~50%. This is because no one person is perfect, and when not making decisions based on facts, humans tend to make biased choices.
Even using gut instinct when hiring, unfortunately, involves using some kind of hiring bias we’ve gained through our experience.
Xobin Interact AI-powered recruitment helps overcome any bias about candidates. Basically ensuring things such as gender, race, and age that can contribute to bias during the sourcing and screening stages are completely ignored.
Moreover, ensure a level playing field for all applicants by choosing Interact Assessments that removes all hiring bias can help reduce your hiring failure rate.
Value your time
“I’m an HR professional. How can I recruit for a Technical Role ?” –Most HR Recruiters
We get it. The buzzwords in the tech and business arena can be quite overwhelming. Xobin Interact has got you covered there.
Create a great Candidate Experience
Candidate experience is directly tied up with your recruitment performance. https://www.jibe.com/blog/candidate-experience/
Once an applicant applies for your company, don’t let the application fall into the pile. With the click of a button, invite the applicant for an Interact Test. With this simple process, you induce a sense of purpose and urgency in the applicant.
Candidates who pass through a rigorous and industry-standard skill assessment process are battle-ready. Not only are they more likely to accept your offer, but they are also likely to stay at your firm for a longer period of time. Apart from that, the skill assessments show the applicants that you mean business and that skills are what matter most.
In today’s technology-driven world, the value produced by a ‘Rockstar’ employee is 10x the value produced by a ‘mediocre’ one. Smart recruiters have recognized this and have made the conscious decision to shift to using Pre-Employment Tests. Have you?
