Regardless of the state of the economy, employers still need to be diligent in pre-screening their applicants
Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
Edge Information Management, Inc. and PeopleClues® are proud to announce two new tools to aid in hiring the best employees possible, The Engagement assessment and “ACE”, the Automated Candidate Experience. The Engagement assessment was specifically developed for measuring the connection between an individual and the job they are applying for. This assessment is designed to evaluate two major aspects of engagement: job commitment (level of motivation and a commitment to the job itself) and commitment to the employer (the candidate’s view of their employer, especially its management). “ACE”, on the other hand, is being introduced to employers as a way to enhance the candidate experience for those “rejected” candidates who didn’t match the companies’ specific needs. “ACE” provides these candidates with personalized feedback containing useful and relevant information to assist them as they continue their job search.
“PeopleClues® continues to offer products that are a result of their innovative thinking and response to customer requests. I am very pleased that Edge has partnered with PeopleClues® to provide our clients with their wide selection of assessment tools,” stated Joe Langford, president of Edge Information Management, Inc.
Julie Moreland, PeopleClues® President, continued, “Regardless of the state of the economy, employers still need to be diligent in pre-screening their applicants. The consistent use of assessments coupled with a thorough background screening process offers these employers the competitive advantage they need to be successful.”
