Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) June 9, 2006
HireDesk, a division of Talent Technology Corporation (TTC) and an award-winning provider of recruitment and hiring software solutions, today announced the addition of a major capability to its HireQuality™ suite of recruiting and hiring tools. Created in partnership with Hogan Assessment Systems, Inc., one of the industry’s most respected providers of workplace assessment products and services, the new release will add validated candidate assessment tools to other competency-based screening capabilities included in the HireQuality™ solution.
"Both our corporate HR customers and our recruiting firm clients are turning increasingly to the use of valid, job-related candidate assessment tools," said Dr. David Jones, Chairman of TTC. "When we considered the landscape of potential assessment technology partners, Hogan Assessment Systems, Inc. was the obvious choice. Used worldwide, their tools reflect some of the best research and development work in the industry," Jones concluded.
"The fact that HireDesk chose our product to enhance their recruitment and hiring tools underscores our assertion that our assessments predict performance in a precise, scientific way, and that we have the research to prove it," said Robert Hogan, president of Hogan Assessment Systems. "We have a database of several million assessments on working adults -- an archive that is unmatched in the industry -- and validation studies on more than 400 job titles. This will ultimately benefit HireDesk’s customers. Building on the excellence in the HireQuality™ solution, the introduction of the Hogan assessments provides information that can be linked with other competency profiling, automated pre-screening, and behavioral interviewing information produced. The result: a total solution when employers want to gain a comprehensive view of each candidate’s qualifications for a specific job," Hogan concluded.
"The new HireQuality™ capability draws on the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) to provide assessments of candidate “job fit” against workplace personality factors, tailored to the specific occupational area for which the candidate is being considered," said Rand Gottschalk, Director of HireDesk’s HR Consulting Group. "By using the Hogan database of test validation research, our customers can take comfort that the “job fit” assessment produced is supported by hundreds of prior research studies," said Gottschalk.
"Our goal is simple: bring our customers all the tools they need to accomplish their recruiting and hiring needs," said TTC’s Jones. "More importantly, make certain that all the tools work together as a single, integrated solution...this capability takes us one more step in this journey," he added.
