Employer FAQs

Q
-

How can a computer make a better judgement than me?

A

Predictive analytics take the ‘guess work’ out of traditional shortlisting so recruiters spend more time with best-fit candidates. It helps them make better selection decisions, faster, while removing human (unconscious) bias from shortlisting to ensure diversity and inclusion.

Q
-

Doesn’t this take human judgement out of the equation?

A

No, it simply pushes it to where it’s most useful. Predkit-r dramatically reduces the time spent manually screening resumes by instantly flagging top contenders and filtering out unsuitable ones. Then recruiters and hiring managers can invest their time engaging top candidates to build rapport and assess cultural fit.

Q
-

How is this different to psychometric tests we already use?

A

There are three big differences. Precision: our tests are proven to accurately predict real, on-the-job performance (not just personal preferences). Pace: our online tests are far shorter and more engaging than traditional tests. Price: smart, scalable technology makes our tests a fraction of the cost of traditional assessments.

Q
-

How do you know it works?

A

We’ve invested years of research to find the ‘secret sauce’ to identify candidates who best meet specific business needs. The platform has been exhaustively tested and we have validated case studies to prove the benefits. We work with clients to measure ongoing business results and demonstrate ROI. Predikt-r is built on the most powerful foundations.

Q
-

How long will it take to see business results?

A

Clients enjoy immediate and significant benefits, with time and costs slashed from the recruitment process. Improved job matching then flows to measurable results over time: like more productive employees, lower turnover, less workplace injuries and ROI.

Q
-

Why is Predikt-r so cost effective?

A

Our solutions use the latest, best-in-class technology. As technology advances, we see a corresponding drop in costs – and we pass the benefits onto our clients.

Q
-

Will the online questionnaire deter or annoy applicants?

A

Quite the opposite. Our completion rates exceed 95% and candidate approval ratings surpass 80%.  That’s markedly higher than traditional psychometric solutions. Our expertise means we know how to construct a test that’s quick, clear and simple – and gets results. We constantly monitor feedback to ensure the candidate experience is a great one.

Q
-

Can a candidate fool the system or ‘trick’ the platform?

A

We use cutting-edge organisational psychology to deliver the most accurate predictions and minimise candidates’ ability to manipulate the results. It’s all about asking the right questions, the right way.

Q
-

How much does it cost?

A

Our innovative ‘pay per hire’ and SaaS licensing models means that our clients can access these assessments at a fraction of the traditional psychometric assessment market.

Q
-

Will it take long to decipher the results? Is it difficult?

A

Candidate performance is predicted with a single score and you get instant, online notifications of best-fit candidates in rank order. Results are clear and easy for anyone to understand at a glance.

-

Do you need to be really tech-savvy to use the platform?

A

Our platform is designed to be ridiculously simple and intuitive to use. Training can be done via videos in less than 10 minutes.

Q
-

What sort of training and ongoing support will I get?

A

Because Predikt-r is so easy to use, we provide effective training that’s quick, clear and relevant. Our clients have access to our soon-to-be-released online resource centre that offers handy tools and answers at your fingertips – including videos and crystal-clear tutorials.
