Filling in a test by a candidate is only a part of the testing process. For a thorough analysis it is unfortunately not enough. Due to that, after receiving the results of the written test, we discuss each measured feature with the candidate again in order to listen to the reasoning and explanations. We make sure that the result of the written test complies with tested applicant’s reasons and justifications. In addition to controversies, the candidate may have been too nervous when filling out the test, there might have been disturbing factors during testing or he/she has not been adequately relaxed for taking the test. The initial result of the test does not usually reflect the actual situation. Choosing personnel is an important task and one must be sure that the candidates’ results are comparable.
We arrange the entire time consuming testing process:
- Become familiar with the enterprise’s current situation and the profile of the employee searched for, as the result of which we establish the key factors required for that position;
- Introduce the candidate the testing procedure and support in case questions may occur;
- Conduct testing in compliance with the established requirements;
- Communicate with the candidate in order to acquire relevant information for concluding the results;
- Analyse the test results and give detailed feedback about it to all participants orally and in a written form.
