Pre-employment tests for job applicants

Avoiding bias

Using pre-employment tests, such as our Manager Aptitude Tests, is one way to avoid bias in the hiring process. Bias can be conscious or unconscious and recruiters may not be aware that they have them. But using research-based pre-hire tests reduces bias that may come from work or educational experience. All of our tests follow the guidelines of the EEOC and US Department of Labor’s Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection.

These tests will measure managerial behavioral traits and statistically compare them with others who have taken the test. These tests have been used by thousands of applicants over the past ten years.
