As recruitment and selection find themselves progressively digitalized and automated, the use of testing has filtered into areas in which it was traditionally less popular. Testing and evaluation tools, once reserved almost exclusively for professional employees and middle and senior management are the new standard for blue collar, field work, and mass recruitment jobs.
Recruitment, selection and evaluation ability for these vacancies poses a new challenge for recruitment departments. With high- volume recruiting the gauntlet has been thrown down; optimizing flow of select, high-quality candidates through the process quickly, without it feeling like a faceless assembly line. It is the job of test and selection platform suppliers to respond effectively to this need.
Among sectors characterized by mass recruitment we can point not only to call centers, wholesale chains and so forth, but also to government bodies undergoing the same digitalization processes commercial firms underwent years ago.
Podium’s selection platform facilitates a range of ways organizations can invite candidates to participate in selection processes – individually or in mass – by pre-registering or through self -registration. When the process is individually or in mass, or as a group, thousands of candidate registrations can be loaded with a single click, sending each fully branded and personalized email invitations, including specific instructions per vacancy or per tender.
Brief, targeted tests for mass recruitment and operative – blue collar – jobs are presented in simpler language and last, at most, 8-10 minutes each, allowing the recruitment body to determine pass / no pass decisions rapidly and automatically.
Midot offers a targeted model for automatic tender management within predetermined windows of time. The tests are available only on the pre-announced dates ensuring complete transparency and equal opportunity. The multi-test link means a single link to a series of tests is sent to candidates. Campaign publicity can also be activated with defined time slots, with the option of limiting candidate numbers and also by geographical restrictions for candidacy, based on IP addresses.
Midot’s testing platform can be easily integrated with the recruiting body’s ATS and HR systems through our APIs so that candidate registration occurs within the client’s system, where the final results will also be sent. While the candidate is taking the test on the Midot platform, the process is managed from a single system, saving the recruiters from bouncing between systems and duplicating decentralized data in various systems.
