OutMatch Uses Machine Learning to Transform Hourly Hiring With the Industry’s Fastest Assessment

Candidates can complete assessments in half the time, giving companies a wider talent pool and better predictability

OutMatch, a leader in delivering actionable predictive analytics to build world-class workforces, is using machine learning to transform hourly hiring for both candidates and companies. With the launch of the industry’s fastest pre-hire assessment, candidates can complete assessments in half the time, enabling companies to expand the talent pool and better predict the right people for the right jobs.

Candidates for hourly roles can now complete assessments in less time than it takes to brew a pot of coffee – a sea change in the assessment industry that greatly improves the candidate experience. It gives candidates a positive first impression of a potential employer, which enables companies to enhance their recruitment brand and attract more potential employees.

Just as importantly, the use of machine learning techniques improves predictability in hiring. By analyzing post-hire data and integrating it into the assessment process, the work traits and competencies most predictive of success, both on the job and within a corporate culture, are refined and sharpened even as the number of assessment questions is reduced.

“We are breaking new ground in the assessment industry by requiring candidates to answer fewer questions but giving companies better results,” said Greg Moran, President and CEO of OutMatch. “Using machine learning, we are broadening what we call the OutMatch Impact: arming companies with robust predictive analytics so they can hire and develop the right teams to drive productivity and profitability.”

The streamlined assessments are initially targeted to fill hourly roles, which is particularly timely amid a tight employment market. Since the shorter assessment will not discourage candidates from applying, companies are still able to gather pre-hire data and ensure they are hiring the best person for the job.
