There’s no doubt that employees are at the heart of every successful organization. When it comes to talent acquisition, you will want to make sure that you attract and hire the right candidates. This process can be made much simpler with a fit-for-purpose applicant tracking system (ATS) that allows you to conduct cognitive & behavioral assessments as well as background & drug testing.
Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)
Our solution enables you to advertise your open positions to multiple platforms and job boards at the same time. Not only that, you will be able to screen applications and carry out interviews all from one convenient central dashboard. With this, you can be sure that your job postings are consistent across different platforms as well as your own website. It also allows candidates to make their applications easily and conveniently, which has the effect of encouraging them to do so.
Instead of spending time you do not have manually screening each application, you can make use of pre-screening questions to filter out unqualified candidates and advance the best ones to the interview stage. From there, selecting the right candidate to make an offer to is made easier than ever before as you can quickly access interviewer feedback and carry out the next round of elimination.
Cognitive & Behavioral Assessments
Taking things one step further, you may wish to carry out a cognitive and/or behavioral assessment during the recruitment process. This will allow you to identify if a candidate will be a good match for your company, giving you an insight into their work styles as well as how they would respond in specific situations.
Carrying out such assessments comes with benefits for both employers and candidates. Candidates will be able to acquire a better understanding of what is required of the role, and this is your chance to impart certain brand values to potential team members. If a candidate does not pass this stage, it is a good indication that they may not fit into your company culture, saving both you and the candidate time on a position that they would not thrive in.
Drug & Background Testing
Once you have shortlisted a few potential candidates and are serious about hiring them, it’s necessary to carry out drug & background testing. While there may be limitations to what an employer can find out about potential employees, conducting drug & background testing is important, especially if you are hiring for a role that involves working with vulnerable groups such as children or older adults.
Testing also helps to keep the workplace safe and productive while protecting your other workers. Did you know that each year, drug and alcohol abuse ends up costing companies in the United States billions of dollars? By carrying out a thorough background check, you can minimize the risk of any new employee bringing about such problems to your company.
