The U.S. economy keeps getting closer to pre-COVID-19 levels. According to the Back-to-Normal Index created by Moody’s Analytics and CNN Business, we are currently operating at 78% of where the economy was in early March when the pandemic hit. That’s up from 59% in mid-April.
Once the world re-opens fully, businesses will need to staff up fast to meet pent-up demand for products and services. New employees will have to get up to speed quickly. But how will employers find the right people who can really get the job done right away?
Pre-hire assessments can reduce ramp-up time for new employees by 25% according to Bersin by Deloitte. For example, online pre-hire assessment system WebAssess saves companies time and money by quickly identifying the best candidates based on their skills, abilities and personality traits.
“An online, pre-hire assessment system puts the right people with the right skills into the right jobs,” said Denise Leaser, President of GreatBizTools, developer of WebAssess.
The unbiased, scientific-based WebAssess system also helps increase diversity and inclusion in the workforce by decreasing or eliminating bias in the recruitment process. Resumes often introduce bias when it comes time to determine which candidates to advance to the interview stage.
“The time has come to democratize the workforce,” Leaser said. “WebAssess can help open up job opportunities for all communities regardless of education or zip code.”
