Top 10 Assessment Solution Companies - 2020

Up until recently, candidates applying for jobs had to be physically present in the testing centers in order to give their pre-employment assessments. Today, however, they need to look no further than their phones to complete the tests. Core HR processes such as recruitment, assessment, and employee engagement are transitioning from a prevalently paper-based approach to a more digitalized and automated methodology.

For HR assessments, in particular, the incorporation of big data analytics is aiding HR personnel to predict employee behavior and potential candidate performance within their organizations. Some of the leading HR assessment services include offerings such as organizational network analysis, change management, leadership development, employee assessment, training and development, emotional intelligence evaluation, among others. At the same time, trends such as gamification, social media analytics, performance management, employee engagement, and big data are changing the way HR departments perform their tasks. In light of these developments, the conventional paper-based and cumbersome assessment processes are now transforming into tech-driven experiences for HR personnel.

Looking ahead, big data will be utilized to enable AI-driven HR processes, while gamification will facilitate the assessment of employee behavior through the choices they make in the designed games. And, by combining performance management with employee engagement, HR departments will gain the ability to drive performance through innovative engagement strategies.

With a comprehensive understanding of these new developments, HR Tech Outlook has compiled a list of leading assessment solution providers and consulting companies to guide firms in harnessing the power of innovative technologies to tackle today’s recruitment and employee promotion challenges. We hope this edition helps you build partnerships that you and your firm require in order to foster a better working environment.
