Job applicants who get high scores on our assessments are significantly less likely to quit or be fired, which Optimize Hire proves by conducting validation studies with researchers at the Wharton School. Validation studies are scientific experiments that show how accurately pre-employment test scores predict job performance outcomes like retention. Experts at the Wharton School who complete our validation studies hold them to the accepted scientific standard of 95% confidence, also known as statistical significance.
The Optimize Hire team, along with researchers from the Wharton School, can conduct a validation study to prove how well our pre-employment tests predict retention at your company. Click here to learn how.
