Talent acquisition is a key priority for human resource executives. Pre-employment assessment tools enable hiring leaders to evaluate job candidates to determine how they potentially fit a hiring profile for specific jobs. Being able to hire individuals that meet or exceed these profiles enables the organization to improve quality of hire. The ability to be selective based on job performance during the recruiting process allows the organization to hire new employees who are potentially more capable.
