Hiring is often a complex and time-consuming process. In some industries, the average time-to-hire is between 20 and 30 days, but it is twice as long in some sectors. In many IT, finance, management, research, and engineering companies, hiring a new employee can take over 40 days.
Reducing time-to-hire has become a big priority for companies. Many organizations struggle to fill key job openings because they are navigating through an unprecedented talent shortage that shows no signs of ending. Most people think the COVID-19 pandemic caused the talent shortage. However, the leading cause is a misalignment of job requirements and applicants’ skills. The skills that employers need have changed due to digital transformation and technological advances.
Organizations that need to find and hire top talent are turning to pre-employment assessment tests so they can fill critical job roles and maintain their competitive edge. By implementing pre-employment testing, they can quickly identify top candidates with the required skills and weed out unqualified applicants.
