Game-based assessments represent an exciting new frontier in the way we evaluate candidates in the hiring process. While traditional pre-employment tests measure your candidates’ skills through familiar test formats like multiple choice, game-based assessments turn the testing experience into a game.
Today we’re excited to announce that Criteria’s testing platform, HireSelect, now integrates with JazzHR.
In today’s competitive hiring market, employers are facing a steep challenge when it comes to finding candidates with the right combination of skills and experience. The perfect candidate rarely exists, especially in high-demand fields, and many hiring managers are having to rethink what qualifications they need to look for when identifying the applicants with the highest potential.
Gamification is already a big trend across a wide range of industries. Health and fitness apps use games and competitions to motivate people to reach their fitness goals. Plenty of consumer brands offer points-based rewards where consumers earn points or complete challenges to win bigger prizes – think McDonald’s Monopoly or Starbucks’ reward challenges. And the education industry has long used games as a way to make learning not only more fun but also more effective.
We all know that candidate experience is critical to a successful hiring process in today's job market. We’re still deep within a candidate-driven market where employers are facing talent shortages in key roles, and where “ghosting” is on the rise.
Gamification is a hot topic right now, especially when it comes to HR and hiring. The idea of gamifying the hiring process has an undeniable charm, and the possibilities feel endless. We’re just now experiencing the very beginnings of what gamification could mean for hiring, and game-based assessments are really the first “gamified” offering to emerge.
There’s a lot of buzz about game-based assessments as a way to evaluate candidates in the hiring process. Game-based assessments are so enticing because they seem too good to be true – they seek to turn something that can be stressful and tedious into something fun and engaging.
Choosing the right job title is an incredibly important part of the recruiting and hiring process. After all, a job title is so much more than a name. For starters, a job title is the first thing an applicant sees when he or she is searching for jobs. The job title you select could ultimately determine whether that perfect candidate clicks on your job posting, or scrolls right on past it.
Earlier this week, we presented a webinar with HR.com about game-based assessments and how they can be used to enhance the candidate experience.
In today’s competitive hiring landscape, a good candidate experience is more important than ever. With the unemployment rate at a historic low, employers are facing a challenge when it comes to not just attracting top talent but also keeping them engaged and committed throughout the entire hiring process.
