At the core of successful hiring practices is the fair and accurate evaluation of skills, abilities, knowledge and other criteria for a job. One powerful method to do this is through psychometric assessments. The RIGHT assessments used in the RIGHT way provide objective evaluation of criteria that are far more accurate than interviews alone. Unfortunately, choosing the wrong assessments or using assessments in the wrong way can lead to bad choices, biases, and even discriminatory practices that violate compliance standards.

So, how do you choose the right assessments?

The short answer: Very carefully.

Yeah, okay, I wouldn’t accept that answer either.

The slightly longer answer: Using a three-step process to evaluate that 1) the assessment is effective, 2) the assessment fits your specific needs, and 3) the assessment provider can support your organization.

During this webinar, we will dive into the three steps providing an easy-to-follow guide to assessment selection - from what questions to ask, to what to look for in the answers, to ensuring that the full solution will meet your hiring and organization needs.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What candidate pre-hire assessments are and how they work;
  • How assessments add value to your hiring process;
  • A step-by-step process for selecting the right assessment for your organization;
  • The questions to ask in order to evaluate if assessments are doing what they claim;
  • How to evaluate the total cost of an assessment solution;
