The Hiring Process

When should the assessment be administered?


The assessment should be administered early in the interview process. You will want to have at least one interview with the candidate after they have completed the assessment since interview questions are generated with the assessment results, the specific point in the hiring process will vary by organization. The key is to remain consistent in how you administer to your candidates.




How can the ZERORISK Assessment help me conduct candidate interviews?


Part of the assessment results include a behavioral interview guide with interview questions that are customized for each candidate and designed to expose strengths and weaknesses through behavioral-based questions.




Is the ZERORISK Assessment valid and legal to use?


The ZERORISK Assessment meets legal guidelines and is in conformance with the ADA and EEOC regulations. All the validation studies comply with the American Psychological Association's guidelines for analysis of psychometric instruments and follow industry standard procedures for statistical analysis. Statistics indicate that when objective assessment tools are properly used to make hiring or development decisions, these tools reduce exposure to "adverse impact" claims.
