With more individuals joining the workforce every day, 2017 is going to be a busy year for hiring and talent managers. That means new talent acquisition techniques and trends. A rapidly emerging trend is a shift toward employee assessments. With this new pre-employment screening process, organizations are beginning to understand that personality and cognitive testing combined can predict whether a person can learn the job tasks quickly and 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.

It’s clear that 2017 will be a year of new hires, and any organization worth its weight will do whatever it takes to attract and maintain employees that will make their organization successful. Implementing employee assessments in your talent acquisition process is a practical and effective solution for selecting the right candidates when hiring.
