Getting the Elements of Pre-Employment Testing Right

Pre-employment testing is an important and integral testing in the process of hiring the right candidate. It is aimed at gauging the potential or proven abilities of a candidate who the organization has zeroed in on, in relation to specific abilities and faculties. Pre-employment testing is basically the method of screening the candidate for a number of selection parameters such as:

  • Aptitude
  • Positive thinking
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Cognitive abilities
  • Drive
  • Communication ability
  • Skills needed for carrying out the work
  • Sensory and motor abilities
  • Drug testing.

Important aspects of pre-employment testing

Two important aspects stand out in the matter of pre-employment testing. One, pre-employment testing has to be done in a legally compliant manner. If companies overstep the legal confines of pre-employment testing; they can be taken to court by the person or persons whose pre-employment testing was done.

Second, pre-employment testing has to be very effective and professional. It has to set out its goals very clearly and meet them. Done properly, it is a great means to selecting the right fit. If this process falters, it fails to give the expected result. When pre-employment testing fails to deliver –which is almost invariably because it was not carried out properly –the result is a bad hire, which could lead to negative financial results for the company, push up the cost of hiring, and lead to waste of valuable resources.

Getting pre-employment testing is crucial to get the right fit

Given the importance of hiring the right resources in today’s situation of extremely high competition in all businesses and the criticality of talent to organizations; getting the elements of pre-employment testing is crucial. If organizations fail at this very important step, they pay a heavy price not only in terms of not getting the right fit, but also in terms of having to face legal challenges.

How do organizations get their pre-employment testing right? What are the steps they need to take? What are the criteria they need to apply for their pre-employment testing practices?
