Incorporate low-cost, online assessments into your hiring process

Sales people are critical because their success directly affects the health of the organization.

From January 2017 to June 2017, the available sales manager talent supply for e-commerce and logistics met only a portion of demand. Below is supply and talent demand data sourced from Career Builder’s Insights portal:

Roles Supply Demand Percent of talent available to meet demand
E-Commerce Sales Managers 1,703 6,623 25.7%
Logistics Sales Managers 3,667 6,697 54.8%

Leverage Online Pre-Hire Assessments for Better Sales Hires

In this competitive talent environment, it’s easy to make hiring mistakes. Unfilled roles are costly, so hiring someone just to fill a seat may be tempting.

However, pre-hire assessments provide a fast, easy and low-cost solution for hiring sales people with the right DNA to be successful at your organization. The assessments can be incorporated into your hiring process for any level sales role.

A 2015 Wall Street Journal article noted that eight of the top 10 U.S. private employers administer pre-hire tests in their job applications for some positions. According to Stephen Davis, a University of Chicago economist, as employers intensified their front-end screening between 2000 and 2015, labor-market churn declined by more than 25% because “a larger fraction of the people they hire are working out.”

Hudson offers online, pre-hire assessments that measure reasoning ability, business attitudes and motivational drives.
