IBM’s Assess assessments are available to businesses to evaluate existing workers or job candidates. With hundreds of validated assessments to choose from in virtually any business and industry setting, IBM’s Assess adds a level of assurance in the candidate assessment or training process. Confidential testing is available at no charge and the results are sent directly to the hiring manager. Candidates can be screened at the job site or at BERC. Businesses are encouraged to establish assessment baseline testing results with their existing workers so that candidate results are evaluated within their company’s norm. The assessment results are translated into a candidate strength and development profile. This information can be used along with the company’s other candidate screening methods to help the company find the right person for the job. And, as every business owner knows it is so important to get the hiring process right since the business’ reputation, finances and even the employees’ safety can depend on it.
