The Challenge

An international organization accustomed to working in different settings and time zones, this world organization is no stranger to enormous people requirements across its global locations. An organization of such stature would need to take into account numerous factors to ensure quality hires without impacting security of personnel and locations.

Key Considerations in Pre-screening

An international organization accustomed to working in different settings and time zones, this international organization is no stranger to enormous people requirements across its global locations. An organization of such stature would need to take into account numerous factors to ensure quality hires without impacting security of personnel and locations.

  • Candidate resume should match candidate’s current skill proficiency.
  • Beyond certifications, candidate should have practical knowledge of stated concepts
  • Recruiting manager/ hiring manager should not be burdened with assessing skills they do not have knowledge of or expertise in.
  • Getting the right questions, different levels of questions for job functions and vacancies for assessing candidates.
  • Quality over quantity – Shortlisting skilled and relevant candidates from a large pipeline to drill down to the most relevant candidates could save ample amount of time
  • In case of remote tests, ensuring the candidate taking the assessment is the same candidate that appears for further rounds.

With requirements around different verticals and lack of dedicated teams in-house, the general process involved people at the operational level would work with HR teams to develop questions and mock tests, which was just additional work on top of their existing activities leading to undue time consumption and resource wastage.

The Solution

Remote assessments would prove an ideal solution to address all of these challenges. While a custom tool for conducting assessments was available in-house, the challenge for this international organization was not in the tool per se. The initial attraction for them was iMocha’s expansive skill library. With a 2,000+ skill library, being empowered by a platform that functioned as an external team with the prompt capability to produce assessments to test a specific subject expertise be it supply chain or a different skill within a short span of time was the highlight. Eliminating the need for HR to depend on SMEs for creating tests and ultimately saving time in the process.
