Job applicants who get high scores on our assessments are more likely to follow safety procedures on the job. To prove this, Optimize Hire and researchers at the Wharton School conduct validation studies. Validation studies are scientific experiments that show how accurately pre-employment test scores predict job performance outcomes like safety. 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.
It's important to us that our clients feel confident their employees will follow safety procedures. Measuring this with a safety-focused assessment is tricky because the right answers to questions are often obvious to job applicants. To remedy this, the Optimize Hire Safety Pre-Employment Test evaluates job applicants on traits that are highly correlated with safety behaviors. We also offer additional safety-related traits including taking risks, responding to authority, and more.
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 safety at your company. Click here to learn how.
