Fridays in the Lab: The benefits of pre-employment testing

Posted by Erin Borgerson on September 6, 2013

We've spent quite a bit of time talking about pre-employment testing and reference checks lately. And this isn't because it's a "hot topic," it's due to the fact that the results of these assessments can greatly affect a manager's hiring decision. We've even made a few hiring (or not hiring) decisions off the results.
