What is a Typical Recruitment Process?
The recruitment process is a step by step strategy to identify job vacancies, analyse the role requirements, reviewing applicants, screening, shortlisting and placing the ideal candidate in the right position.
The Recruitment process usually encompasses three steps. Each step requires careful preparation and planning.
- Pre-selection: in this step managers define the job requirements, the personal qualities of an ideal candidate and the skills required for the role.
- Selection: the selection process entails reviewing the applicants' CVs, conducting interviews, administering psychometric tests and selecting the ideal employee.
- Post-Selection: the post-select phase is critical to ensure the company retains the new talent. This stage requires familiarisation with the individual hired and providing excellent on-boarding.
Often recruiters rely on CV's and gut feeling to select an employee. DISC Recruitment assessments and hiring assessment tools support the hiring process from selection to on-boarding. Remove guess-work from the recruitment process and reduce the cost associated with a poor hire. 81% of companies expect to make more reliable, less risky decisions using psychometric tests.

There are a several recruitment assessment tools a HR or recruitment manager can use during the recruitment and onboarding process to identify and develop top talent. The best recruitment assessment tools are DISC profile assessments and cognitive tests. A candidates cognitive ability and behavioural style significantly impact job performance.

Recruit & Select Assessment
Extended DISC® Recruit & Select Assessments allow you to analys behavioural fit against key role requirements. The reports provide a clear understanding of an individual's natural behavioural style and the types of tasks and activities they feel comfortable undertaking.
These factors are hugely valuable when evaluating a candidates' fit for a role. Identify, in advance, how the candidate will fit in with the team, where their strengths are, what may cause stress, and when they may need additional support.
Candidate selection training
We provide assessment tools and training for managers and recruiters to empower them to hire the best possible candidates.
We teach you how to use the features of the Extended DISC® assessment and Cognitive Ability tests to build a picture of a candidate's fit for a role. Managers can use the assessment to match the candidate's natural behavioural strengths to job role requirements and spot quality candidates. Extended DISC® assessments are entirely customisable. Managers can modify an assessment to include the exact behaviours needed for the job role.
DISC assessments help to answer questions such as does the candidate bring a style to the team that is currently missing? Can the team manager help integrate them into the team? How the manager can effectively communicate with the candidate and what motivates the candidate to perform.
When used in conjunction with a CV, interview and reference checks, Psychometric assessment tools help to build an accurate picture of a candidate before they are selected, leading to more successful and reliable hires.
Screening and evaluating candidates
That 'gut feeling' alone is not enough to ensure you employ the most suitable candidate for a role. Assessment tools for recruitment and selection provide you with a complete overview of a candidates likely behaviour in the workplace. Psychometric assessments provide an in-depth picture of a candidate's behaviour and ability than interviewing and referencing processes alone. Extended DISC Assessments ensure you have accurate and comprehensive information to make a well-informed recruitment decision. Use DISC assessments and hiring assessment tools to support the interviewing process to ensure you ask the right questions.
Psychometric tests help recruiters and companies to understand who individuals are before they even begin working. Once we know and understand things like a person's preferred work environment (if at home or the office) and their development areas, we can put suitable measures into place, such as the right support from the manager and training plans.
How to improve your on-boarding process
Extended DISC Assessments assist in the recruitment and onboarding process to improve new hire retention and productivity. Recruitment profiling tools such as DISC allow you to understand how to best support your new employees to help them feel valued in a new workplace. Ensure your new employees are engaged, motivated and productive from the commencement of their employment with your organisation. Identify a candidate's pressure triggers to help reduce workplace stress. Recognise learning and development needs to optimise workplace performance.
The Extended DISC Team Assessment tool provides an opportunity to understand how your new candidate will fit into the team. Identify if the candidate fills any gaps in the group and recognise areas for potential tension or disputes among existing team members.
The DISC Work Pair assessment is a great resource to draw on when the new hire works closely with an existing team member. The Work Pair Assessment identifies the shared strengths and weaknesses of the two individuals and where they may encounter tension.
