Highly mature talent acquisition (TA) functions are deeply integrated with HR and the business to further organizations’ strategic talent priorities, according to Deloitte Global and Bersin by Deloitte, the company’s specialized consulting group dedicated to delivering Insights and Services for HR.
The prehire assessment solutions market, which includes WebAssess from GreatBizTools, supports this effort not only by helping organizations hire for values, fit and potential but also by providing data and insights to bridge ongoing performance to retention.
To effectively differentiate between solutions in the market, buyers need to understand the different capabilities that providers are offering to support these key activities. Mackenzie Wilson, Senior Research Analyst and Denise Moulton, Vice President, Talent Acquisition Research Leader of Deloitte Consulting conducted Prehire Assessment Solutions research, assessing 28 different solutions with capabilities to support the five factors associated with the Talent Acquisition Maturity Model.
They compiled their findings in an article that profiles each vendor solution provider, offering insights into which capabilities they offer to support the different talent acquisition (TA) maturity factors and assessment categories.
As part of their research, Wilson and Moulton highlighted a number of prehire assessment solution capabilities that organizations can evaluate through the lens of the five factors associated with TA maturity:
- Talent acquisition alignment
- Personalized talent journey
- Strategic recruiting
- Data and artificial intelligence (AI)
- Capability development
By using this framework, organizations can help to ensure that the candidate evaluation process is aligned with the broader recruitment strategy.
WebAssess From GreatBizTools Featured As A Solution That Identifies Candidates By Skills, Abilities and Personality Traits
The 28 solutions providers that participated in the Deloitte Prehire Assessment Solutions survey are classified accordingly in one of three broad areas: talent acquisition (focused exclusively on recruitment applications), talent management (offer solutions for both recruitment and employee development), or human capital management (part of a larger HCM solution offering).
Each vendor profile provides perspective about the company, its performance, a description of the solution, and an analysis chart of the TA capabilities offered. Additionally, the profiles provide a glimpse of assessment categories supported based on the different combinations of form and function each provider offers.
Many solution providers offer additional services and solutions not included within their profiles. While the inclusion of each solution provider is representative of the prehire assessment provider market, it is not an exhaustive list.
