Pre-Employment Assessments gives your small business the hiring edge you need.

pre-employment_assessments_1Using Pre-employment assessments to screen your potential new hires gives you an objective perspective on your hiring practices. Your employees are your business. They interface with your customers and make your business a business. Knowing who they are and what they are all about BEFORE you hire them reduces your exposure to making a decision you will regret later.

The hireGEMS® human resources for small business service makes it easy for you to make great hiring decisions without having to spend a lot or invest a lot of your time. The system allows you to screen potential candidates either at your business location or remotely. All you need is the candidates’ email address and you can either launch the system on your location’s computer or a tablet, or send the applicant an emailed link to start the process.

Our hiring assessments are not general compatibility or personality tests. They have been scientifically developed to determine how a person will behave on the job. Originally used for the restaurant industry where high turnover and a fast paced intense environment is the norm. Regardless of your business, our pre-employment assessments will give you an objective insight into who the person is and how well they will perform on the job.
