HireSelect, Pre-Employment Testing and Trends in HR

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.

First, if you’re new to the subject of pre-employment testing you may want to check out our white paper. There are also a couple of blogs that I read regularly that I would recommend to HR people who are interested in following trends in HR testing. The one I want to mention today is this HR Testing blog that may be of interest to those of you who are already familiar with the basic issues surrounding employee testing. One of the recent posts gives a good summary of a recent survey of trends in employment testing.

Well, that’s all for now, I’ll keep the first one short and sweet. But check back later this week when I’ll post a summary of a recent study we did examining the use of the Wonderlic Personnel Test by teams in the National Football League. We came up with some findings that I think may surprise you.
