Partnership with industry leader adds behavioral assessments to selection capabilities

Lexington, MA, October 12, 2004 – Webhire, Inc., a leader in talent management solutions, today announced a partnership that will provide its customers with a fully integrated solution for online assessment testing.

With this partnership, Webhire customers will have the opportunity to conduct online assessments of candidates as they apply to positions in a corporate career center managed by Webhire, as well as allow candidates already in the customer’s talent management system to take an assessment. This industry-leading solution will store the results of the assessment for each candidate in the customer’s Webhire talent management system.

“As a leader in talent management solutions, Webhire is committed to providing our customers with the tools they need to select the best candidates to meet their hiring goals,” said Susanne Bowen, President and Chief Executive Officer at Webhire. “As identifying the right candidates for open positions becomes increasingly challenging, assessments are a key component to making the right hiring decision from the outset, leading to better quality of hire and improved retention.”

The partnership directly supports Webhire’s belief that the future of talent management lies in the ability to strategically manage the entire employment life cycle; from initial attraction, sourcing and selection techniques to executing effective hires through a positive, meaningful candidate relationship, continuing through employee retention. This integrated solution now gives mid-market companies the opportunity to take advantage of a best-of-breed selection tool, resulting in the selection of more qualified candidates, and the ability to hire, promote and develop better employees for the long term.

"Research that we've seen has shown that candidates hired through a rigorous assessment process often fit jobs better, perform well for the company and are more likely to stay with their jobs than employees hired without assessment," said Dr. Charles Handler, president and founder of Rocket-Hire (http://www.rocket-hire.com), a consultancy dedicated to helping organizations use technology and best practices to build effective, legally sound employee selection systems. “Adding the ability to integrate assessment capabilities into their product offering gives talent management solution providers the ability to sell products that can help ensure their customers can optimize the predictive ability of their hiring systems. This ability is an essential ingredient for any quality focused hiring process."
