Our research has identified this as a critical need for all selection systems, and reaction to these new tools has been extremely positive
(PRWEB) October 27, 2010
In response to market demand, Select International recently released its "Fit" suite of assessments, a group of five brief (10 – 15 minute) screening tests that are positioned up front in the hiring process. The suite contains customized assessments that target different job sectors, including service, sales, healthcare, manufacturing and transportation.
According to Select International co-founder Matthew O'Connell, Ph.D., there has been a growing market need for short, up-front screen to optimize the hiring process since the time of online applications.
These brief assessments continue to build on the company's approach of incorporating multiple assessment methods into a single, seamless package. The "Fit" assessments include personality scales, but they are much more than personality inventories; they also include biodata, situational judgment and behavioral intentions. These abbreviated assessments were designed so that candidates could complete them in 10-15 minutes. In addition, the reports were designed to be easy to interpret and visually attractive.
According to Select International, the goal is for organizations to use the "Fit" assessments to quickly screen out candidates who would be a poor fit for the jobs in which they are applying.
"Our research has identified this as a critical need for all selection systems, and reaction to these new tools has been extremely positive," said O'Connell. "We've seen that the "Fit" assessments can be an integral part of a company's selection solution."
