PeopleMatter Unveils 6-Minute Mobile Job Assessments

PeopleMatter has rolled out its brand new mobile-optimized assessments through its division, PeopleClues, to help service industry employers find the best fit employees. The pre-hire assessments—which take a mere six minutes—gauges an individual’s personality and attitude and is the first of its kind. It is scientifically created to offer a better candidate experience while maintaining a high quality of measurement.

PeopleClues provides assessment tools that allow thousands of companies in eight countries to make better hiring and training decisions. The assessments they build, which measure job fit, attitude and level of candidate and employee engagement, are used for pre-employment screening, career and team development, as well as training.

Relying on 10 years of research, PeopleClues has developed these mobile assessments as another way for PeopleMatter customers to increase compliance and defensibility within their selection processes. Mobile technology is rapidly altering how candidates search for jobs. In January, mobile devices accounted for 55 percent of Internet usage, exceeding personal computers as the main source of traffic for the first time in history.

Companies who have not yet optimized their application processes for mobile experiences lose out on several potentially great candidates. In fact, CareerBuilder reports that 40 percent of mobile candidates will abandon the application process when they encounter a non-mobile friendly site. When companies allow job candidates to complete pre-hire assessments and apply for a job directly from their smartphones, they increase their applicant pool and find higher quality candidates.

That is good news for the service industry, which typically faces high turnover. As the economy continues to improve and the labor market tightens, hiring the best employees is a top concern for businesses such as retail, foodservice, and hospitality.

“This is the next generation of innovation,” said Julie Moreland, SVP, PeopleClues Division. “Our team of data scientists has transformed the assessment science and enabled it to live in a new, mobile world. We analyzed 10 years of data to develop shorter mobile personality and attitude assessments that offer the best candidate experience in the industry without sacrificing the quality of the results. We have delivered on our commitment to keep raising the bar for providing high value assessment science coupled with a highly positive candidate experience.”

By identifying key trends based on data collected from more than 3 million individual assessments and demographic data points, the PeopleClues team has developed its assessment using fewer questions to achieve a maximum result. Coupled with a mobile-designed user experience, the new assessments offer an even better, more flexible candidate experience. For the employer, results maintain the same level of accuracy and job fit alignment while reducing abandonment rates.

The assessments are integrated into the mobile-optimized job application that PeopleMatter launched last month, giving the candidate a real mobile experience with a redesigned user interface, location functionality, save features and mobile-optimized workflows. Designed for use on all mobile devices, the assessments are optimized for both smartphones and tablets, automatically responding to the screen size and taking advantage of additional display space on tablets. Employers can decide to include the personality, attitude, the six-minute cognitive assessment or all three, depending upon their needs for specific positions. The personality assessment is based on the Big 5 psychometric standard that measures personality characteristics for conscientiousness, likeability, unconventionality, extroversion and stability.

Automating and optimizing people processes since 2009, PeopleMatter helps more than 42,000 service-industry locations thrive through better efficiency, engagement and customer satisfaction.
