Game-Based Assessments: How Utilising Games to Assess Cognitive Ability Produces Better Quality Hires
Cognitive pre-hire assessments are considered the gold-standard for gaining a deeper understanding of a candidate’s innate abilities. Cognitive ability has repeatedly been shown to predict job performance and career advancement better than any other ability or personality trait, and even better than job experience. Get a deep look into how HireVue’s game-based assessments offer a valid alternative to traditional, question-based tests, and along the way learn about what is being measured, why, and how it will impact your bottom line.
