Comprehensive Applicant Testing & Training System

Is Your Hiring Process Missing Some Key Aspects?

Every organization that is participating in the veritable sweepstakes that is the hiring process hopes to end up choosing a winner. As challenging as this can seem, history and research both show that employers can easily stack the odds in their favor. The key to doing so is in understanding that people are multi-dimensional and that they bring all of the aspects that make up their "selves" to the workplace.

As organizations begin to look at their job applicants in a more "holistic" manner, they realize that these applicants are really much more than the mere sum of their abilities. They are, in fact, a combination of skill, ability, knowledge, desire, attitude, personality, and much more. The key to selecting the right ones is to be able to tap into the applicant and gain a "holistic" view of who they are and how hiring them may potentially affect the organization.

While an applicant consists of many aspects, it is impossible to measure all of them. Thankfully, employers are able to peer into three main aspects in order to develop a profile of who the person is behind the applicant. These three main aspects, which should determine whether or not an applicant will benefit your organization, are:

  1. Can Do – Do they possess the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for success?
  2. Will Do – Will they be inclined to utilize that knowledge, skill and ability?
  3. Will Do More – Can you take new hires and existing employees and give them the skills needed to increase their productivity, efficiency and accuracy?
