Hiring a winning team requires that you use talent assessments that can identify the great from the good. The recruitment process in most companies is quite basic. You look at the candidate’s academic qualification, give them some IQ test and if they clear the test, they are called in for an interview. This process is quickly dying out as companies are now looking at have automated systems that help them filter candidates in a more streamlined way that uses assessments that make sure that a wrong hire never happens and talented candidates are not overlooked.

Why are talent assessments important?

Did you know, 65% of candidates who apply for a position in your company do not even meet the basic requirements for the job? This could be because a candidate might be from a culturally different background and might not be proficient in English. This means you might let great candidates slip out of your selection process because they found it difficult to take a traditional IQ test or might not have the highest level of qualification.

Companies like Google and Microsoft have stopped asking for a candidate’s academic qualification and instead concentrate on assessing them on characteristics that are important do a particular job like cognitive skills,  personality,  and communication. Technical knowledge can always be thought if a person has good learning agility but you can’t teach someone to be a good problem solver, decision maker, or critical thinker.
