We're currently hiring!
We've had so many great applicants send in their resumes and we've spent hours on the phone, trying to get a sense of who has the right attitude to work at Bridgeview. Once we've narrowed down the list, we've invited those who made it through to the assessment portion of our interviewing process.
Why is it important to add assessments to the interviewing process? Liz Forth, a blogger at Namely.com, published a great article on the benefits of workplace assessments. Her blog article can be found here: blog.namely.com/5-key-benefits-of-workplace-assessments
Liz says that workplace assessments benefit everyone. Employers can match potential team members to the role that might best suit them and team members can be confident that they will succeed in those roles. Everyone is happy, right?
At Bridgeview we strive for workplace satisfaction. We want to know at the end of the day that we have done the best very work for our customers and that our work goes out into the world to empower our customers to succeed. A person needs to have the right attitude to work here and asking people to take assessments is one of the ways we make sure our team members are happy in the roles they have been placed in.
We use a variety of assessments, everything from DISC (an assessment of how people communicate) to a basic math skills worksheet. By using these tools, we can further weed out who might not be happy working here. Those who make the grade are then asked to come back for a final interview.
Do you use workplace assessments? If so, how have they benefitted your company and your team members?
