Small Businesses Finding It Difficult to Find and Evaluate Qualified Employees

Small Businesses Finding Qualified Employees ImageAccording to a recent Gallup poll, 53% of small businesses in the US report finding it difficult to find qualified employees. This may be surprising, given the relatively high unemployment level (7.7% when this article was written). In addition, small businesses report that the top-2 ways they find employees are through word-of-mouth and employee referrals. But how do you know that the applicants referred via word-of-mouth or through existing employees are actually qualified for the job?

Optimize Hire uses cutting-edge pre-employment tests to evaluate applicants’ cognitive ability, motivation, personality and other traits to determine which applicants are most qualified. Evidence shows that applicants who score high on our pre-employment test are significantly more likely to have higher sales and productivity, lower turnover, and higher customer service and supervisor ratings than those who score low.
