Retention Results

If your organization is hiring more than 200 new employees each year, our experts at the Wharton School can conduct a validation study to show how well our pre-hire test predicts retention or turnover.

Employees take our off-the-shelf assessment. Their scores are matched with data about how likely they are to leave. Time and time again, we've shown that a higher Optimize Hire score corresponds with a lower likelihood to leave the job and create turnover.

 
 Validation study graph results showing that higher scorers on the Optimize Hire pre-employment assessment are 16% more likely to stay at their job than low scorers.

16.1% more likely to stick around

This data from a 2018 validation study with over 400 participants at a large company showed that people with high scores on the Optimize Hire pre-hire test were 16% more likely to intend to stay in their job for the next year or two.


51% more likely to stay on

This data is from a 2017 study done on approximately 250 employees at a company in the Northeastern United States. Our Wharton experts found that intentions to remain at the company among high scorers on the Optimize Hire assessment were a whopping 51% higher. 

 Validation study graph results showing that higher scorers on the Optimize Hire pre-employment assessment are 51% more likely to stay at their job than low scorers.
 

 Validation study graph results showing that higher scorers on the Optimize Hire pre-employment assessment are twice as likely to stay at their job than low scorers.

Twice as likely to remain in the job

Just under 200 employees at this large company in the Southeast took the pre-employment assessment. High scorers were 2 times more likely to stay on at their job than their low-scoring counterparts. This means this company could halve its costs associated with turnover by using the Optimize Hire assessment.
