Why use Assessments to Hire?
No matter how great an applicant looks on paper or how smooth they appear during the job interview, many are experts at fooling the most experienced recruiter. Difficult personality characteristics, low skill levels and even issues with integrity may not surface until you have made that costly hiring decision. You are then left to deal with the emotional strain and potential legal problems associated with having to terminate a bad hire, and costs associated with having to recruit again - time spent on interviews, re-training and loss of productivity.
Why the Custom Approach to Your Assessment Strategies?
The “custom approach” to pre-employment hiring assessments ensures organizations are only testing for those behaviors and skills that are relevant to the job, thereby increasing validity, while at the same time reducing test administration time significantly. Clients have the option to take advantage of our pre-assembled organizational fit and job match assessments to assure they are assessing for the specific behavioral traits that are important for success on their job.
Why Organizational Fit & Job Fit Assessments?
Depending on the position, we recommend inviting applicants to take up to two assessments during the hiring process. The first is to determine if the candidate fits your culture, and the report functions as a guide to conducting a good first interview, usually on the telephone. This assessment is called the Organizational Fit Assessment. A second assessment determines specific job fit and assists you in conducting the second interview for those candidates that pass your first hurdle. This is called the Job Fit Assessment. Here are a few reasons to consider this approach:
Organizational Fit Assessments are designed to determine:
- Does the candidate have the attitudes and behaviors to work well within your organization?
- Are they likely to be:
- Drug-free Attitude?
- Follow Company Rules?
- Good Work Ethic
- Candid and accurate in their responses and not trying to outsmart the test?
All of this in an inexpensive, online assessment that only requires 15 minutes to take. Request a TalentValue Organizational Fit Sample Interview Report

- Does he/she have the workplace skills to perform the job?
- Does he/she have the personality to cope with the job environment?
- Does he/she have the energy to perform the job?
- Does he/she have the attitude to deal with the pressures of the job?
