With more individuals joining the workforce every day, 2016 is going to be a busy year for hiring and HR managers—that means new hiring techniques and trends. A rapidly emerging trend is a shift toward cognitive tests. With this new pre-employment screening process, organizations are understanding that personality and cognitive testing combined can predict whether the person can learn the job tasks quickly or think critically.  With the average tenure of a 25 to 34-year-old employee at a mere 3 years, finding a successful job fit is crucial.

However, medium and small-scale businesses are often left out of this trend due to a smaller scale of resources and employees. Fortunately, Talexes offers job fit assessments for organizations of all sizes.

As technology takes over the business world, pre-employment screening through online services is becoming more common. However, even though 77 percent of people between the ages of 16 and 34 use mobile devices for job searches, only 10 percent of Fortune 500 companies offer mobile-friendly application processes. This is another aspect where Talexes is a step above the others—with pre-employment screening assessments that are mobile, tablet, and PC compatible, you’ll always have the means to ensure you hire the best.

Now that it’s clear that 2016 will be a year of new hires, any organization worth its weight will do whatever it takes to attract and maintain employees that will make their organization successful. Pre-employment screening is a practical solution for selecting the right candidates for hire.
