Is this scenario or something like it familiar in your company?
You are part of a senior recruitment panel or one of a team choosing the provider of important new solutions for the business. Although the correct process for each of these scenarios is clearly defined, many people have expressed dissatisfaction that not all contribution were equally valued.
In a group situation, there is always the likelihood that one person will try to influence others who perhaps are lower in the company structure, have less experience or are not as self-confident even though they may have an equally valid contribution to make.
Although many companies are aware of these issues, they struggle to find a practical solution while others prefer not to confront the problem at all.
Recognising the complexity of the problem eSkill has developed a uniquely flexible solution called Team Review. Every assessor’s opinion is equally valuable. Team Review provides a comprehensive but easily configured solution that can remove all bias from a recruitment panel or which product should be selected.
Team Review can dramatically change corporate decision making, to see for yourselves contact Warren Bresler on 0845-8400123 or email email@example.com for your free trial of Team Review.
Many of our clients are aware that their brand and reputation have a major role in the recruitment process. In actual fact an online skills test invitation can be one of the first times they have been contacted by the company.
To help make that interaction more engaging eSkill have a number of tools to help you:
- You can create your own email test invitations
- Your logo is featured in the email invitations.

Just before we start, the definition of On-Boarding is – the induction and assimilation of a new employee.
When you have been through the process of recruiting a new team member or even a whole team of people into the business, managing their expectations and helping them to become productive as soon as possible become a priority.
There is a vast assortment of information that needs to be created, personalised, collated and distributed to every individual wherever they are located. Some of this is needed before they start working, others has to be provided further down the line.
Information gets changed, updated, added to over time and for so many HR’s it has become a burden to coordinate and deliver:
- What to do when you arrive – your location/travel/parking
- Our culture
- What we expect of you and you of us
- Your first day, week and month
- Your manager, mentor and colleagues
- Business dress code
- Health & safety/Legal
- Getting paid
How The On Boarding Solution From Recruitment Assessment Can Save You Hours Of Work
Recruitment Assessment’s On Boarding service combines every strand of information you need to distribute in a role specific online manual – using your images, videos, PowerPoint and it even reports to you that a section has been read and understood by the individual.

It’s not about individuals. It’s about teams.
How often do you hear this mentioned – whether on the sports field or in the workplace?
Great teams are made up of individuals of course. But for employers or managers the requirement is the ability to objectively measure individuals and see how they complement and enhance a team for a greater overall performance.
It would it be great to be able to measure and compare performance across a team across a range of criteria e.g. prospecting, discovering needs, overcoming objections etc – to ensure that every £ you spend on training is addressing real issues of performance.
Recruitment Assessment is able to help you by looking at individual performance and also compare it against the rest of the team – objectively and accurately. See our sample report.
Leadership and Sales are just two areas that can benefit from a Team Comparison to role in recruitment can help you identify candidates that fit irrespective of their education or social background. You can download our sample report here.

Lawyers, Accountants, Surveyors and FCA’s typically have standards more demanding than other employers, unfortunately not all candidates who apply for these roles have the skills they claim to!
Analysts at Recruitment Assessment have uncovered that typically LLP’s require a higher standard of testing. They want questions 23% more rigorous and are looking for a 12% higher pass mark than those preferred by more general businesses.Compliance and regulatory requirements are frequently behind this need but ensuring high quality client interaction is also mentioned. The 5 topic areas requested are Data Checking, Time Management, Attention to Detail, Numerical Reasoning and Multi-Tasking.
Recruitment Assessment has created a range of tests specifically for LLP’s they can help quickly and reliably identify if the key attributes required are in place.

It was interesting to hear on a recent radio interview that the Ernst and Young, one the the big four accounting firms, process for recruiting graduates includes a rigorous aptitude assessment element.
With hundreds of roles available their recruiting process includes a strengths assessment as well as numerical tests, reasoning tests and some psychometric tests.
This highlights that even with highly qualified graduate applicants, it is best practice to assess skills before recruiting.
Recruitment Assessment provides a wide range of skills testing services covering thousands of topics and skill levels. You can find out more here.
I read with interest the top 20 job titles which are advertised in the UK and then realised how many tests we have to cover these. With these roles being so popular it is likely that the volume of respondents is going to be high – which makes a recruiters job much more difficult. How are you sensibly going to be able to assess the relative skill levels of these applicants. Food for thought.
Anyway here are the top 20 – and yes there are some in there that we would not be able to provide tests for e.g. electrician – but there are a whole lot more that we can. You can see our full list here: http://bit.ly/1GaDGpU
