Discover the basics and some useful tips to recruit more efficiently! AssessFirst is an application that allows prediction – in a reliable way – of a person’s ability to succeed and commit to a particular position, in a specific business.
For this, we rely on the evaluation of their potential.
Recruit by potential, not by CVs…
When using AssessFirst, you can understand people’s potential along 3 axes:
- Their reasoning capacity: What they can do.
- Their motivations: What they want to do.
- Their personality: How they behave on a daily basis.
By themselves, these 3 types of criteria can explain almost 80% of the difference in performance and commitment between people who succeed in a given position and those who don’t succeed.
How is this different from traditional recruitment?
Traditionally, when a business has to recruit, they rely on the CVs or LinkedIn profiles of candidates to do the first sort. From there, the remaining candidates are interviewed (face-to-face or by Skype).
At the end of these interviews, one candidate is chosen.
The objective of “Predictive Recruitment” is to replace the preselection phase of CVs and LinkedIn profiles, using a preselection based on potential.
Why? Simply because it works so much better!
Most people dress up their CV and can tell a good story on LinkedIn…the problem is that these nice stories can’t tell you whether the person will be able to do the job for which you’re recruiting. That’s why we prefer to rely on the reality of the candidate.
What results can I expect from predictive recruitment?
On average, businesses who use the AssessFirst predictive recruitment application hire employees who: - Perform 15% better; and - Stay up to twice as long in the position. At the same time, they reduce the recruitment timeframe by 30% and reduce their selection costs by around 20%.
