Assessments

HR Partners offers an array of on-line assessment tools which target all phases of employment, from selection and hiring to training, coaching and management performance. These assessments provide accurate, reliable data which help employers achieve the best job fit; help managers lead, coach and motivate effectively; and help all employees direct their efforts toward greater productivity and profitability.

The assessments HR Partners offers will measure and evaluate, for example, how well an individual fits into the culture of a company, the candidate's current knowledge related to the position, and the candidate's likelihood for success. Following the completion of the on-line assessment, customized reports are emailed to the manager or supervisor, which provide a comprehensive, objective analysis of the candidate. The reports even offer customized questions to be used for subsequent interviews. The assessments may also be benchmarked against the "ideal" qualifications of the position to see how the actual candidate stacks up.

When considering tests and assessments for use in the hiring process, you should look at six (6) factors:

  1. accuracy
  2. reliability
  3. job relevancy
  4. non-discriminatory
  5. validity
  6. ease of administration

"HR Partners provides a screening process when searching for candidates for a position. The phone screens save me valuable time and give me the information needed to decide whether to invite someone to our office for an in-person interview.

They also serve as a knowledgeable resource for up to date standards with HR issues. Two of the most significant improvements would be making the hiring process a breeze and having a resource to provide valuable feedback on HR issues. HR Partners allows you to continue to work on your mission, whatever it might be, while spending less time on HR issues. You have the confidence when hiring someone that they will have the skills/knowledge to the job well."
