The conversation around blind hiring is heating up in the HR world as more and more people are becoming aware of the effects that unconscious bias can have on the hiring process. In our last blog post on the topic, we discussed how blind hiring practices could serve as a valuable tool for combating unconscious bias.
We're excited to announce the release of a major update to HireSelect! Below, is the e-mail we sent to customers describing some of the new features:
In a series of blog posts last year I discussed the evolution of employment personality testing, from the Myers-Briggs to the "Big Five" to more job-specific personality inventories. The last of these continue to grow in popularity, especially in the fields of customer service and sales.
At Criteria we develop and deliver pre-employment testing software that our customers use to help enhance their hiring process. Because our service is web-based we can track our customers' usage patterns pretty closely, and this provides us with great insights into hiring trends across the U.S. (we currently have hundreds of customers in 46 different states.)
Today's blog post is by Wayne Chuen, the lead software engineer in Criteria's product development group. Wayne directs Criteria's software development initiatives.
Hello all. Well, we're taking the plunge into the blogosphere. We're launching our blog in order to be able to discuss trends in employee testing and Human Resources in general, provide updates about new features in HireSelect, Criteria's web-based pre-employment testing system, and to provide news about our company that may be of interest to our customers.
