MyInnerGenius | How Assessments Help Address Unemployment at Scale

Technology and globalization are rapidly shifting the skills required, and incumbent workers are at risk of being left behind. At the same time, there is a critical demand, in particular, for workers with contemporary, relevant skills in Technology, IT and related fields. The COVID-19 Crisis has further accelerated these trends. It is now more critical than ever that employers deploy more efficient assessment tools to quickly and confidently identify the talent they need to meet both new and pent-up demand for products and services. They can do that with career fit assessment tools, which are designed to identify people’s innate skills, abilities, and personality traits and match them with careers they will love. By aligning career advice and training recommendations with the actual job opportunities that companies have available, they provide workers with meaningful, actionable insights that help them jump-start new careers. GreatBizTools offers a career fit assessment tool called MyInnerGenius that helps employers find the best people and helps people discover what they do best. GreatBizTools is currently working with IBM on an initiative whose goal is to help people get started in new IT careers even if they don’t have technology backgrounds.

Vervoe & TriNet | Assessments and Remote Hiring to Mitigate Bias

Every day, wonderful, capable, and passionate people are unfairly excluded from the hiring process for reasons other than whether they can actually do the job. Every candidate should have an opportunity to showcase their talent. Companies can drive this by assessing candidates with job-related tasks so they can make hiring decisions based on performance, without bias. Making hiring about merit, not background, and informed decisions from data, not bad signals around human capability across both hard and soft skills helps companies identify the talent that matches their business needs. Similarly, quality assessment technology helps learners make more informed career navigation choices among employment opportunities, identifying skills while exploring what’s possible in a particular sector and role. Vervoe is an AI-powered skill-testing platform that helps companies hire the best candidate by focusing on who can do the job, not who looks good on paper. Vervoe uses machine learning to create tailored skills assessments that allow companies to test candidates for any skill and automatically grade their responses at any scale. TriNet is a global leader providing businesses with HR solutions and works with JFFLabs partner Vervoe to help evaluate candidates for sales and other roles.

Cappfinity & JFFLabs | Ensuring Assessments Don't Reinforce Existing Systemic Bias

During a time when arguably more workers than ever navigate a labor market in flux, they deserve an equitable experience. Yet, pedigree based hiring, and making recruiting decisions based primarily on the schools candidates attended, the subjects they studied, and the grades they earned is a bias tradition that continues in our post-COVID economy. Replacing traditional hiring approaches with a blended strengths-based assessments model helps companies to level the playing field for all candidates. In this podcast, JFFLabs features Cappfinity, a global leader in strengths-based hiring. The company designs and builds bias-free assessments for a variety of roles, functions, and seniority levels using real-life scenarios and a mix of mediums to create an authentic and unique experience for candidates. Among other things, bias-free, algorithmic assessments can help employers meet their diversity and inclusion goals by enabling them to look past candidates’ backgrounds and instead focus on their ability, fit, and potential.
