Pre-employment testing is used in the interview and hiring process to screen potential employees, gauging a candidate’s knowledge and current skill level. From the results, companies make a well-informed decision to hire or pass on the candidate. Even more beneficial, if hired, supervisors and managers identify exactly where their new employee’s skills and knowledge will best succeed and if he or she may need additional training.
NBS offers pre-employment testing for every industry.
