The Purpose Of Talent Assessments

Having a recruitment assessment process expertly designed and tailored to the job is paramount.

A poor hiring decision can result in nearly four times the cost of a successful recruit, significantly impacting the candidate experience and damaging the employer’s brand.

Moreover, the recruitment assessment process allows organisations to showcase their brand, educate the talent about the role, and gain a competitive edge over other employers.

Equally crucial is crafting an inclusive and unbiased assessment journey that accurately represents the diverse workforce, ensuring a level playing field for talent from all backgrounds to excel.

The Benefits of a Blended Talent Assessment

Improved Efficiency And Lower Cost Per Hire

Organisations can significantly reduce their hiring time by consolidating all recruiting assessment test data into a single stage.

The availability of a more comprehensive array of data points allows for more flexible use of cut-scores, enabling a more efficient reduction of the talent pool while adhering to best practices.

The Amberjack blended assessment was purposefully designed to collect data in the minimum talent completion time necessary while maintaining a robust evaluation process from the ground up.

Additionally, this approach results in a unified blended cost, eliminating the need for multiple separate expenses.

Provides An Engaging Talent Experience

By allowing your talent to provide all the necessary assessment data in one go, you can minimise the time gap between application and offer, reduce attrition from excessive touch points, and eliminate the need for talent to enter and exit your hiring process repeatedly.

Our blended assessments are thoughtfully crafted to engage talent through diverse assessment items.

The ready-to-use nature of our blended assessment makes it a seamless choice. However, if you prefer a tailored approach, you can effortlessly integrate brand-specific information and video content to enhance engagement.

A truly blended assessment also ensures a comprehensive feedback report encompassing all relevant aspects of the evaluation process. This holistic approach streamlines the assessment experience for both talent and organisations alike.

Increased Diversity

High-cut scores based on a single criterion frequently result in adverse impacts within a recruitment assessment process.

However, our blended assessment score, derived from multiple criteria, enhances the predictive accuracy of your assessment without compromising the diversity of your talent pipeline.

This ensures a fair and inclusive evaluation process that identifies the most suitable candidates for your organisation.

Better Quality Talent

By obtaining a comprehensive and well-rounded assessment of each individual, you gain the advantage of “incremental validity” by evaluating potential using various activities rather than relying heavily on a single approach.

Implementing these assessments for talent management will lead to higher-quality talent at later stages of the assessment process.

This, in turn, enhances hiring decision-making and increases the likelihood of selecting the best-suited talent for your organisation.
