ECRS used traditional methods for hiring. Potential candidates were called into their office to appear for a pen-paper assessment. This was time-consuming and required a sizable team to oversee the entire process. These assessments required space, time, and money to be conducted.
Since the evaluation was manual, the candidates ended up being in the workspace for almost the entire day. Sometimes this created a bad experience for the candidates.
ECRS looked for an automated solution that will help them ease out the recruitment process and effectively filter out unqualified candidates before the interview round. They were also searching for an assessment platform that let them add their own questions.
ECRS partnered with iMocha to create tests using their own questions.This helped them create tests with skills that matched the job profile.
The tests were remotely proctored; this meant candidates could appear for the test from the comfort of their homes. With advanced proctoring techniques the integrity of the tests was maintained.
The in-depth skills-wise report made it easier for the recruiters to vet out unqualified candidates and schedule interviews with only relevant candidates.
ECRS has successfully evaluated more than 150 candidates for various job roles. Their time to hire has reduced along with the cost of recruitment logistics.
