As any HR professional knows, hiring the right candidate for the job is easier said than done. A seesaw of variables, the talent acquisition process can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. Employers need a better way to assess candidate fit and make hiring decisions more efficiently.

During the SHRM 2016 Talent Management Conference & Exposition, representatives from Shaker will be on hand demonstrating the company's Virtual Job Tryout technology. Using predictive modeling to anticipate performance, the Virtual Job Tryout enables companies to see potential employees in action by engaging them in simulated on-the-job scenarios, offering them a test drive of key tasks and more. Virtual Job Tryout technology provides candidates a realistic job preview to better evaluate fit, empowering recruiters with actionable data that optimizes the recruiting process, saving time, reducing costs and improving quality of hire. Employers have used the Virtual Job Tryout to reduce candidate flow effort by 20 to 30 percent, increase new-hire retention by 30 to 50 percent and realize a boost in employee performance of 20 to 125 percent.
