Every organization focuses on hiring only the best candidates for their teams. If your organization is still using traditional recruitment processes then you might be holding your growth back. Evaluating and generating results from assessments to acquire appropriate talent that suits your company’s requirement is now more seamless with the use of a cloud-based assessment platform. As all of us know, the cloud is everything! Cloud-based assessment platforms help recruiters getting feedback from the key people about the candidate; however, traditional recruitment processes make it strenuous to get everyone up-to-date on the latest candidates.
The recruitment landscape has changed drastically with the adoption of new technologies. TalentBridge Technologies is a leading name in the recruitment industry with comprehensive and unique offerings. The company offers the cloud-based assessment platform- CALIBRAT.
CALIBRAT (earlier iHiring) is an advanced, scalable and secure online assessment platform which helps the talent acquisition team to evaluate Aptitude, Technical Skills and Written Communication Skills using various evaluation formats. Innovations in assessment solution have greatly reduced the manual efforts in administering and proctoring the screening tests, and also nearly eliminated the possibility of evaluation errors. The security features are an important element of the online assessment platform as it’s extremely critical to protect the integrity of assessment and prevent anyone from compromising the credibility of the screening process. The state of art security features like random candidate snapshot (with Face detection and recognition technology) while candidates are taking assessments eliminates any impersonation and makes the assessment secure particularly in a remote environment without any invigilator or proctor. The assessment platform can track the on-screen activities of candidates while they are taking assessments and the test administrator can monitor all the candidates centrally. The evolved assessment platform also offers features to conduct multi-lingual online assessments.
The masterminds behind the long-standing growth of the company are its founders, Mr. Gauravendra Shukla (CEO) and Mr. Sandip Yuwanati (COO). Under their innovative and solution-oriented vision, TalentBridge Technologies’ team is making efforts to transform businesses with quality HR solutions.
