How does ThriveMap make hiring fairer?
ThriveMap makes hiring fairer by designing pre-hire assessments that evaluate candidates based on the specific skills and attributes required for success in a particular role.
These assessments are less susceptible to bias and manipulation compared to many traditional evaluation techniques. Additionally, using technology-based pre-hire assessments has been shown to result in a 39% lower employee turnover rate. These assessments achieve fairness by:
Standardising the hiring process, enabling structured, objective, and fair candidate scoring.
Providing consistent and directly comparable information since candidates perform the same tasks, facilitating fair comparisons.
Reducing hiring bias by allowing candidates to take assessments anonymously, focusing evaluation solely on relevant tasks rather than background or prior experience.
By adopting these assessments, organisations can enhance their hiring fairness and consistency while making more data-driven decisions.
