Test and analyse your team before hiring your next person!

So you think you’ve found the right candidate, they’ve been interviewed twice, the team like them and they accept the offer. You begrudgingly pay the agency fee, get the start date sorted and then keep your fingers crossed. But how do they compare to others in your team in terms of personality and technical ability…only time will tell right?…wrong!

It’s a known fact that 80% of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions but through testing you can minimise the risk of hiring the wrong person. We don’t think you should leave anything to chance when hiring and one way to minimise the risk is by testing candidates.  This is useful as a means of identifying areas for training and development, personality type and understanding specific technical know-how, essential when hiring IT professionals, such as Software Developers.

People Assessments powered by Thomas International. There is so much to be gained by understanding what makes a person tick, their motivations and what drives them to success.  It also give you a clearer insight into how to lead and manage them.

Testing also strips away the ‘tell you what you want hear’ interview approach and gives you a deep and honest insight into your candidate’s personality type. Still don’t buy into psychometric testing? Do one, the results are astounding!

Technical Testing powered by IKM is designed to produce a comprehensive profile of the knowledge set of your existing team and/or new employees.

Wouldn’t it make sense to get a benchmark of your current team in order to compare your incoming employees against them? Perhaps there is also a value in understanding your existing team’s technical capabilities for development and training purposes.

IKM TeckChek has a huge selection of technical tests that include:

  • IT – Software Development (C#, .NET, Java, C++ etc)
  • IT Infrastructure – Network Engineering / Virtualisation
  • ERP
  • Accounting
  • Customer Service
  • Industrial (inc Machine Skills, Electrical – H&S)
  • Sales
  • Secretarial and Administration

Before you hire your next employee, think about how they might compare against your existing team. A technical test can be set up in minutes and completed by your employees or your candidates remotely online.

For more information please contact Matt Power who is our in-house testing expert.
