Top 6 Assessment Tools in India for Recruiting and How They Help

Recruitment activity in the country has seen a steady rise post-pandemic. With Human Resource departments and Talent Acquisition teams searching for the ‘right candidate for the right role’, skill-based hiring has seen a massive surge. The barrier to finding the right candidate include difficulty in handling a diversified talent pool, sourcing strategies, delays caused by manual assessments and poor hiring decisions. To bridge this gap, recruiters are now looking at remote assessment tools. 

Of these, online assessment tools are an emerging alternative to manual, time-consuming assessments. Currently, over 47% of tech recruiters in India are embracing online assessment tools for hiring.

Why Choose Online Assessment Tools Over Manual Assessment?

Gone are the days of boxes filled with paper, answer sheets and questions. Students were used to taking timed tests at college campuses, waiting for a review from the team that manually reviewed it. This process was time-consuming and left room for errors. 

With the switch to online assessment tools, the experience has been positive for both recruiters and employees. These tools forgo old practices, eliminate geographic boundaries in the search for talent, set forth skill-based assessments and eliminate chances of errors or any form of bias. 

They also speed up the recruitment process, increase the quality of hire, can be scaled as per the number of candidates and provide a database for recruiters to access. 

Assessment when combined with automation standardizes the screening process. The remote platform offers a set of assessments across subjects such as psychometrics and aptitude, specific domains such as coding, and cognitive assessments, and simplifies the overall recruitment process. 

An advanced assessment platform integrates with the existing workflow of the recruiter providing hassle-free screening for the recruiter and a positive experience for candidates. Here are some of the top six assessment tools that can help recruiters assess and select the right candidates.
