ASSESSFIRST 101

New to AssessFirst and don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, we’ll explain everything you need to know to become a real pro in Predictive Recruitment and Predictive Talent Management.

ASSESSFIRST…WHAT IS IT?

AssessFirst is a solution that lets you predict people’s capacity to succeed and thrive in the positions you’re recruiting for, in the ultra-specific context of your business. To do this, we rely on the assessment of “who they really are”, beyond which university they went to or what their career pathway has been.

By comparing the profile of each of your candidates or employees to a model of expected behaviours, you’ll be able to immediately identify – in a reliable way – the people who’ll know best how to succeed all while thriving, in the ultra-specific context of your business.

WHY FOCUS ON EVALUATIng POTENTIAL?

DISCOVER A FEW ESSENTIAL NOTIONS THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO TAKE MAXIMUM ADVANTAGE OF ASSESSFIRST.

LET’S START WITH “PREDICTIVE MODELS”…

Whenever you set up a recruitment, you necessarily start by defining certain criteria that you want to find in your candidates. It can relate to the fact that they’re well organised, that they’re motivated by outdoing themselves every day or even that they’re capable of rapidly acquiring new skills. At AssessFirst, these expected qualities are formalised within what we call a Predictive Model!

We provide you with more than 400 of these models by default. We’ve designed them by analysing the profiles of more than 5,000,000 people across 30 different countries. But be careful, they’re more “Benchmark” models than truly “Predictive” models. What we mean is that they’ll be able to tell you whether your candidates’ profiles are more typical or atypical compared with the profiles of people who hold a certain position, in a certain country.
The most effective way, if you really want to predict the capacity of people to succeed and thrive in the positions you’re recruiting for, in the ultra-specific context of your business, is to create your very own predictive models. And to do that, there are 2 ways to proceed.

To create a personalised predictive model, select the situation that most matches your own:

You’ve created you first predictive model? BRAVO, you’ve finished the hard part! Now, let’s see how to use it in a campaign…

WHAT IS A “CAMPAIGN”?

Campaigns are the tool that allow you to manage each of your recruitments or your internal evaluation projects.
To create a campaign, all you need to do is give it a name and attribute a Predictive Model.
After that, you can just share it with your candidates or employees, to be able to identify the best of them!

ONCE YOUR CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN SHARED, ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS ANALYSE YOUR CANDIDATES’ RESULTS!

ALL THE USEFUL INFO IS THERE, RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES.

Once your campaign has been shared, each candidate who has clicked on it and completed their profile will automatically be associated with the campaign.
All you’ll have left to do is check the results to know whether or not they have the type of profile to succeed in your business, in the position you’re recruiting for.

Find out more about ASSESSFIRST…

AssessFirst is a company specialising in predictive recruitment and predictive talent management. The solution that we’ve developed allows companies and consulting firms to anticipate the capacity of people to succeed and thrive in their positions, in ultra-specific cultural contexts.

To come up with these predictions, we don’t rely on traditional criteria that you’d typically find on people’s CV or LinkedIn profile, but on the evaluation of their potential (who they really are). This evaluation is generated using 3 questionnaires that cover people’s intellectual capacity and agility (what they can do), what motivates them (what they want to do) as well as their personality (how they behave on a daily basis).

Once people’s potential has been evaluated, our algorithms allow us to compare their profile with the qualities necessary to succeed in a particular position, in the context of a particular company. By using AssessFirst, our clients recruit employees who are on average 20% higher-performing and more committed, radically reducing their turnover rate (by up to 50% for some positions).

Today, more than 3,500 businesses across 30 countries use AssessFirst to recruit better staff and to manage their employee’s careers more efficiently. The AssessFirst solution is available in 12 languages.
