Pre-employee assessments are a great way to gauge the skills, strengths, weaknesses of
candidates while hiring and they have been the norm in one mode or another as HR
professionals screen and identify the right fits for roles of their organizations. How
effective these assessments are and how they can be improvised is still a debatable topic.
Hiring from campus and hiring in volumes mean that the HR professionals need to find the
best fits from hundreds (sometimes, thousands) of candidates with similar qualifications.
The hiring numbers are also equally high. It’s a delicate balance between finding people
with skills as well as potential.
Organizations use their unique processes for assessments, however the biggest challenges
that still remain are:
Time taken for screening, identifying, interviewing, and selecting the right candidates being very high
No. of candidates interviewed per role still being very high
Lack of a structured talent matrix of the candidates selected for further deployment
Further, lack of structure for document review which eats away precious time between
selection and offer
Currently, the HR professionals rely highly on traditional assessments as well as an
unstructured process for end-to-end management which make campus hiring a tedious and
time taking process.
The solution for most of these challenges would be leveraging technology to set up the
entire assessment to interview process for hiring. Integrating assessments
platform/software will benefit the HR professionals majorly by cutting down the time taken
for screening. End-to-end assessments platform like Yaksha solves this challenge by
offering auto graded & accurate reports on the skill levels of the candidates through
multiple formats of assessments.
HR professionals will be able to:

Screen the candidates automatically as they go through multiple assessments
