Challenges Faced

Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance wanted a solution that would help solve difficulties in identifying the technical expertise of candidates, save time during the interview process, redefine the traditional interview process that was unable to identify the skills of candidates, and screen skilled lateral candidates for technical roles in the IT department by using a reliable assessment process.


To test skills of candidates, the company used to arrange a technical interview. The interview would be headed by the company’s technical experts. After identifying primary and secondary skills pertinent to the job description, questions would be curated to test candidates’ dexterity.

This process was unable to screen out technically skilled candidates. Time and effort used up in technical interviews was not reaping much output for the company and created a lot of redundancy. An alternate screening process at the first stage of hiring was the immediate need.

With the new hiring approach using iMocha assessments, the first round of screening was replaced with iMocha’s assessments. After detailed mapping of primary and secondary skills in the job description, ready to use assessments were curated to test technical skills accurately.

High quality content was incorporated in these ready-to-use assessments and they were closely aligned to match job roles. Finally, after validating them with global subject matter experts at Mochaworks, invitations were rolled out to candidates.

The Results:

  • A good response rate from lateral candidates with an 83% invited-to-appear ratio.
  • Manual efforts replaced with automated screening process, saving time drastically.
  • Candidate performance analytics automatically generated to enable quick shortlisting.
  • Only skill-fit candidates screened in for interviews.
