Pre-Hire Assessments Tracks Pre-Hire Assessments By Creative Business Solutions


What do you know about the pre-hire assessments available to your organization to aid in hiring the right applicant? A recent article in “The Wall Street Journal” (April 15, 2015) stated that between 2001 and 2013 the number of U.S. large employers using pre-hire assessments increased from 26 percent to 57 percent. If you are not using pre-hire assessments as a regular part of your hiring process, you should be.


A pre-hire assessment is an online assessment tool designed to best match an applicant’s thinking style and behavioral traits to those required for optimal performance in the position. To effectively use a pre-hire assessment, you must fi rst analyze the position you are hiring for. What does the position profi le look like? What thinking style and behavioral traits are best suited for the position? Using pre-hire assessments to effectively match the traits required in the position to the traits of the applicant has been proven to signifi cantly decrease the turnover rate and increase job performance and productivity.


At Creative Business Solutions one of the pre-hire assessments used is called a Profi le XT. A case study published by Profi le XT, titled “Strategic Hiring System Pays Off In Call Center Operations,” describes the performance and turnover challenges for a reservation call center of a major hotel fi rm. After implementing the Profi le XT, the case study states, “Overall, retention beyond June 30 increased from 27 percent to 58 percent with use of the strategic hiring system. Results were even more striking in the area of involuntary terminations; a reduction from 31 percent to only 17 percent involuntarily terminated in the study period.”
