What weight should be given to the employee assessments?

Assessment is part of the hiring process and should be treated as such. An applicant’s resume, professional and personal references, experiences and skills will all need to be considered, as will the individual’s performance in the interview. Assessment is meant to take the process a step further and research beneath this “surface information” to get at the individual’s true motivations and behavioral traits. The compilation of all this information can help you with targeted interview questions and will help confirm or put to rest any concerns you might have about the person’s ability to do the job.
