NEW FEATURE: Baseline Skills to Make the Right Hire

New Pre-Hire Assessments

Our Pre-Hire Assessments allow you baseline applicants’ skills so you can hire with confidence.

One of the most expensive mistakes a business can make is hiring the wrong people for your teams. 

Not only is this costly from a monetary perspective – but the countless hours spent, the operational complexity it causes, and the risk of releasing error-prone code into production also play a huge role when it comes to hiring the right person for the right job. 

And in the world of technology, this is an even greater risk as the tech skills gap continues to grow rapidly and employee turnover rates are at an all-time high.  

But what if you could reduce the risk of making costly hiring mistakes by understanding the exact skill levels of your job candidates ahead of time? 

Well, at Cloud Academy we’re helping you do exactly that! Over the past two years, we’ve been building more and more tools to help you not only train your teams, but also to hire and retain top talent for your team. It’s part of our mission to be the end-to-end Skills Intelligence Platform – a solution that helps organizations understand and develop tech skills from hire to retire, and every step in between.

Pre-hire Assessments example

If you’re a Cloud Academy customer now, you already know how valuable our Assessments tool is. It’s a tool we’ve provided since our founding days that leverages our unique exams, labs, and quizzes to get a practical yet holistic baseline of each individual’s strengths and areas of opportunity. It doesn’t matter whether you need insight into role-specific skills, programming skills, cloud platform skills, or other tech areas – our Assessments tool gives you hard data to measure your talent’s aptitude. 

Use Pre-hire Assessments to get the best possible candidates

Now, we’ve released Pre-hire Assessments, powered by our same Assessments technology used for current employees, to be used for prospective employees. That way you can predictably hire talent with confidence, then upskill individuals from where they are now to where the company needs them to be in the future with a perfectly mapped out training plan specific to their needs.

Pre-hire assessments example data

Once you’ve hired the strongest fit with actionable data, you’re able to accelerate the ramp-up time of your new hire since you can assign them to the projects they’d be most confident in, and accurately train them in the areas where they need it most. Having an ongoing database of their skill level from the moment you interview them enables a better experience for you, the new hire, and the company overall. 

By eliminating the guesswork into your candidates’ skill level now, you also eliminate the guesswork in your onboarding, training, and employee experience moving forward.
