When it comes down to it, the hiring decision is largely an act of human judgment. However, the quality of this decision corresponds directly to the quality of the data provided during the hiring process. Seeking to better understand the experience, Talent Board's annual Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards program surveys how companies use pre-employment assessments as part of hiring.

During this webinar, Talent Board member and Shaker executive vice president, Joseph P. Murphy, will focus on what assessments mean to recruiters. Drawing on four years of Talent Board data, Murphy will reveal three reasons why companies use assessments, when assessments are leveraged during the recruiting process and what types of assessments are in use. From here, Murphy will examine the recruiter experience, how assessments impact workloads as well as candidate rejection and exploring what CandE Award winning organizations do differently. Webinar attendees will also learn how assessments predict career stability, differentiate performance potential and improve quality of hire.
