  1. Should be compatible with your company’s culture: The platform you choose should hold the same principles in high regard as your organization. The overall brand tone and interface must connect with yours so that both are on the same page. 

 

  1. Be able to handle data security: One major criterion for selecting assessment platforms is that they need to follow the data security rules and regulations. There should be a strong security feature in place that must safeguard the information of the candidates and the present workforce. 

 

  1. Help reach ROI goals: Another important factor to consider when choosing an assessment platform is its contribution to your ROIs. If the platform is functional in saving costs and helping you reach your ROIs, then it is the right fit for you.

What are the criteria for selecting an assessment platform?

 

  1. The Assessment platform needs to be scalable: One of the biggest criteria when selecting an assessment platform is scalability. If you are investing in a platform, it needs to help generate more funds for you and cannot be overlooked by decision-makers. 

 

  1. It should be easy to use: When you choose an online assessment platform, you will find multiple features that it offers. But if as a user you cannot use the platform properly, then there is no point in getting that platform. It is better to find a platform that is easy to use but at the same time offers some great functionalities. 

 

  1. The platform should have an automated analytics and reporting feature: The online assessment platform must have the technology to automate the entire reporting and analytics process. These reports are error-free and will offer an entirely holistic overview of all candidate’s resumes. 

 

  1. A strong support team: Users of online assessment platforms, may need some technical assistance when it comes to utilization of the tool. This is why one of the biggest reasons for choosing the right assessment platform is a great support team.

 

  1. 360-degree assessment tool: As per a study by CareerBuilder 71% of employers value the emotional intelligence of employees more than IQ. So, it is important to have an online assessment platform that serves as a one-stop solution to assess the overall competency of the candidate.    

      

 

A checklist for selecting an assessment platform


We live in an age of data-driven decision-making, where there are numerous platforms available to help make the entire recruitment process more strategy-based. So, let’s take a look at a checklist for selecting an assessment platform: 

 

  1. Assessment of comprehensive needs: Start by conducting a detailed analysis of your organization’s recruitment needs. Take time to understand the key objectives to identify the best employees, improve training programs, and enhance the dynamics of the team. This will help work as your point navigation through the entire process. 

 

  1. Ready to adapt to the future: The platform you choose must suit your requirements today while supporting your growth plans for tomorrow. Choose a platform that is flexible enough to integrate new technologies but is scalable enough to support any future growing plans. 

 

  1. Must have a user-friendly interface: A platform’s popularity depends heavily on the usability of its interface. When you have an intuitive and user-friendly interface, it encourages the use of the tool across all levels of your organisation. So, before deciding on a tool check if you are comfortable with its usability.  

 

  1.  Easy customizations and integration: No two organizations are similar, and neither should the same functionalities of the tools apply. So, look for a platform that offers easy customizations to integrate easily with your present HR ecosystem to streamline the entire process. 

 

  1. Maintaining data security and compliance: Even though this is mentioned last, these are some of the most important parts of the entire checklist for selecting an assessment platform. The assessment tool must protect all highly sensitive employee information, so choose one that can protect data from any unauthorized breach. 


 

Choose the Assessment Tool that aligns with your organization's goals! 


When it comes to selecting the perfect talent assessment tool remember that it is not merely a platform but rather an investment into the future of the company. This is a strategic move that can help shape your company’s future and influence everything from the hiring process to the cultivation of leaders.
