‘The Art of Using Assessment Tools to Transform Your Recruitment Delivery’ was an intimate speaker and round-table networking breakfast event for 30 management-level in-house recruitment professionals, all interested in finding out more about assessment tools and how to use them effectively as part of their recruitment processes. There’s no questioning that the effectiveness of certain assessment tools are helping to revolutionise the recruitment process on a global scale, but with the vast level of choice available, it’s difficult to work out which tools would suit your organisation best.
Throughout the course of the morning we heard from two specialist guest speakers who shared their insights to help our in-house recruiters understand the world of assessment tools better and ultimately improve their recruitment delivery.
