How Flogas saved thousands by replacing in-house testing

Just as so many businesses found, on a global scale, the impact of COVID-19 in 2020 on our ‘normality’ was beyond imagination. It impacted both work and home life, in that home became work life. Amongst the many drastic adjustments that were made, specifically, our recruitment process had to be reevaluated.

Suddenly, businesses had to hire candidates without having met them! There was an essential layer to the hiring process that was taken away from us and we had to find a way to replace it. Introducing psychometric testing into Flogas’ recruitment function allowed us to gain an insight into a candidate’s abilities, strengths and even personality without having to meet with them. We were able to make educated, informed and fair decisions, all the while remaining safe.

Initially, we saw Test Candidates as a temporary solution, to a hopefully temporary problem. However, the more we have used the platform, the more we have seen the data received off the back of these tests becoming crucial to understanding what we want and need to see from new hires. Not to mention the time and cost efficiency! Psychometric testing is here to stay.

Of course, face to face interviews are likely to return when they can, but that is not to say that we will be reverting back to our old ways. Test Candidates has definitely opened our eyes to the benefits of technological integration into HR. What we were also pleasantly surprised by was how approachable and personable the product and service was. We can customise the material sent to candidates, ensuring it falls in line with our branding.

Goodbye expensive and lengthy hiring processes

We have been able to significantly reduce our recruitment spending, whilst improving our recruitment process overall. Test Candidates not only streamlines our hiring process but it also enhances the candidate experience. The platform is so intuitive and user friendly, both for us as the employer and for the candidate. We gain data-driven insights into how our new recruits are likely to perform. All thanks to Test Candidates!
