95 of 100 applicants will “exaggerate” to get a job

Two of three new hires will disappoint in the first year

Two of three employees would rather work somewhere else

One in three businesses will be sued this year over an employment issue

Turnover costs thousands of dollars for every departing employee.

80% of employee turnover is avoidable

Assessments offer solutions

Historically, employers depend upon résumés, references and interviews as sources of information for making hiring decisions. In practice, these sources have proved inadequate for consistently selecting good employees.
