Applicants who score well on our pre-employment tests have higher sales revenue. We prove this with validation studies which we perform when requested as a courtesy to our clients.
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 employment test predicts higher sales revenues. There are two ways we can conduct validation studies.
In the first, we ask current employees to take our pre-employment test and then match their score with supervisor ratings of their performance. The second uses fresh data from a year (or so!)’s worth of new hires which were hired using the Optimize Hire Pre-Employment Test as an initial screening tool. Then, as in the first method, we match those test scores with supervisor ratings and analyze. Both are efficient, proven methods.
Time and time again, we've shown that a higher Optimize Hire Pre-Employment Test score corresponds with higher sales revenue for that employee.
7% more revenue
A validation study with this Fortune 300 company in the Northeast United States showed that high scorers generated 7% more sales revenue than low scorers. In economic terms, the gains from increasing the validity of hiring methods can amount over time to millions of dollars.
89% more revenue
These sales numbers from three large companies that did a combined validation study showed high scorers generated 89% more sales revenue than low scorers.
