Successfully placing people in jobs requires both choosing the people with the right skills and the people who can actually apply those skills in their working environment.
Almost all hiring managers and recruiters have experienced the phenomenon of having one picture of a candidate after the employment interview. That impression may be based on some combination of written test scores, aptitude tests, personality tests, biographical information or other typical approaches. But then, after a relativity short time on the job, a totally different impression of that person emerges.
This happens because typical tests fail to incorporate the environment into the testing process.
Observing people work in the real environment is the most effective way to assess abilities. But how often do you have that luxury when you're trying to make hiring or promotional decisions? Typical tests move away from the actual job, to paper and pencil or other formats, resulting in inappropriate candidate job match.
Ergometrics simulations are designed to narrow the gap between test performance and job performance. Simulations provide a look at not only abilities, but how individuals use those abilities given the real circumstances they will be working in, including: time pressures, stressful interactions, interruptions, and essentially everything that makes jobs hard.
Ergometrics is the award winning leader in simulation testing. High quality simulations are a proven technique, an essential component of modern management. More than a thousand Ergometrics' clients use our simulation tests - state governments, cities, counties, public safety departments, financial institutions, and all other kinds of organizations.
