Benefits of pre-employment screening

Interviewing and reading through an applicant’s resume might be an outdated way of screening your employees. Recent research shows that 78% of resumes have misleading or false information about the applicant, while almost half contain blatant lies. This trend led to the emergence of companies offering pre-employment testing that can help employers gather accurate data, making the whole hiring process easy. Some of the benefits of this include:

Hassle-free hiring process
Applicants who go through pre-employment tests are required to accomplish exams early on. Through this, you can easily identify applicants who are serious about the job.

Accuracy
Employees are being recommended for certain jobs based on the outcome of their tests. The exams, which determine the strengths and weaknesses of an individual, help recruiters narrow down candidates.

Lower Attrition
If the tests show that an individual excels in math, verbal, communication skills, and other skills required in a sales job, the employee will likely be productive in a position related to sales. Thus, he or she is less likely to be fired or quit.
