Share Article

Online assessment expert, Teresa Fearis from SHL, world leader in workplace assessment, is to join an industry discussion panel at the Online Recruitment Expo in Chicago, Illinois in September.

This is a great opportunity to get in front of recruiters to demonstrate how SHL Verify can overcome their concerns about cheating in an online environment and offer practical guidance on how to implement, manage and measure the return on their online assessment solution.

The Onrec Expo, in its first year in the US, runs from September 12-13 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, and is designed to explore issues, developments and opportunities in the growing international online recruitment market.

As well as contributing to a discussion panel on the added value available to recruiters in the online recruitment process, SHL will also be featuring its latest offering for recruiters, the SHL Verify™ Range of Ability Tests, at booth 316.

SHL Verify will deliver a new approach to online testing and be available to the US and Canadian markets in September. Created with input from SHL’s global customers, Verify is designed to give HR directors confidence in online testing without having to face significant increases in time or costs. With SHL Verify, recruiters can authenticate the candidate’s ability through a scientifically-based short re-test thereby removing the time and expense of a full length re-test. The solution is also underpinned by regular security audits which include web patrols to detect any sharing or downloading of SHL tests and data forensics to monitor test response data to detect cheating or test fraud. In trials SHL Verify identified 95% of cheats.

“This is a great opportunity to get in front of recruiters to demonstrate how SHL Verify can overcome their concerns about cheating in an online environment and offer practical guidance on how to implement, manage and measure the return on their online assessment solution.” said Fearis.

She added: “SHL’s ability to integrate these tools with technology partners in the online recruitment space means that companies can get even more value from their existing workflow solution. So, whether a company is currently using online testing for recruitment or about to start, Verify is easily added to your process to help identify unsuitable candidates early on in the recruitment process ensuring only those likely to succeed would make it through to the later, more expensive stages of the recruitment process.”
