Using Pre Employment Assessment Tests Aids In Quality Employee Selection

By Lela Perkins

The headlines for more than five years have trumpeted the twin maladies of a dire economic condition across the globe and spiraling unemployment. The impact of the contracting world economy has severely affected global trade and domestic production, and the hardest hit is felt by families who lose jobs. As the economic engine sputters back to life, employers need help finding the best employees, and use pre employment assessment tests to do it.

As the situation worsened, the unemployment rates grew to sizes not seen since the great depression, and a version of a labor death spiral took effect. With more unemployed individuals, the number of families struggling increases, and there is less money to be spent on anything. The decline in retail activity in turn results in decreased for laborers from manufacturing to transportation to retail outlets.

No one has definitively described the genesis of this worldwide economic decline, but risky credit policies seem certain to have contributed significantly. In the wake of the problem, banks responded to the impact, as well as the mounting criticism by economists and regulators by tightening credit and access to capital. This, combined with the reluctance of companies to expand or invest, continued the decline.

It requires a positive environment for businesses to make the challenging and risky decision to build more factories, hire more workers or open new retail outlets. The sudden and dramatic reduction in credit and capital made the decision difficult to make, and even harder to execute. This is especially true of small businesses, a traditional source of new jobs.

One significant event that helped stem the decline was the bold and controversial move to execute a government spending program designed to stimulate growth. By targeting investment in those places that require more labor, the government provided the means for companies to hire and produce again. While this necessarily added to the deficit, it prompted the economic engine which allowed companies to begin hiring again.

In the end, the bolstering of very large companies on the brink of failure as well as spending on national infrastructure seems to be working. The continuing net loss of jobs has been stemmed, and there is a new trend in job growth that foretells a brighter future once again. Just as pessimism fed the decline, optimism feeds the rebound and growth, leading to the new challenge; maintaining steady growth without inflation.

As economic strength recovers, all levels of government are rewarded with increased revenue. This provides the stability which allows for greater investment in infrastructure and basic services like law enforcement and fire departments. Society is also bolstered through the government ability to fund education, both in facilities and instructors.

Once an opportunity becomes available, employers are overwhelmed with the number of applicants, and making a selection becomes difficult. Naturally, this is a much better situation for the employer with an open position, but it is still complex. Pre employment assessment tests level the competitive field and help the best candidate get the position.
