It’s a well-known fact that bad hires are a costly affair. According to one research, the cost is as high as five times the annual salary of the individual. While there may be a number of reason why a candidate leaves – including lack of clarity, misaligned expectations and lack of candidate fit, being able to assess a candidate holistically will be critical to recruitment.
Emerging technologies are now making it possible for recruiters to go beyond assessing just job-related skills. They can help assess behavioral traits and also map whether the said candidate would fit the job role. For example, is a candidate introverted or extroverted? And therefore which specific job role could he or she be aligned to? Sales or Coding? The possibilities are endless.

Here's what are will cover:

  1. Why is holistic ‘candidate’ assessment a critical first step in hiring?
  2. What are the latest technology based advances in assessing candidates and employees that you should be aware about?
  3. How are assessments helping the HR function take decisions throughout the employee life cycle? From identifying skills gap to aligning learning courses?
  4. How are progressive organizations making the most of technology based assessments?
