Mettl’s assessments have been the biggest filter in our recruitment process. Their platform has helped us reach out to a higher volume our applicant numbers. Mettl constantly keeps innovating on their products and tries to introduce a new aspect to everything.
The brand’s increasing regional presence across Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, and India has enabled it to expand its team. Subsequently, NLG sought tech hiring solutions that could enable it to filter the best candidate for the desired job role/s. The brand’s goal was to hire the best quality candidates in its IT (Information Technology) department. The organization followed a standard recruitment process: filtering resumes, evaluating the candidates’ skills on their performance in test assignments, followed by face-to-face final rounds of interviews. Unfortunately, even after assessing the candidates’ domain skills through assignments, it could not onboard candidates who could efficiently carry out their job roles.
NLG was facing this challenge with their top-performing interviewees who would under-perform when solving real-world challenges. As a result, the challenges mentioned above were becoming a roadblock for the brand in building a high-performing IT team. Subsequently, the organization realized to foster an enhanced technical recruitment process that could execute successful hiring and deliver quality talent.
NLG actively sought a partner that could streamline and employ a structured approach to its recruitment process in its IT department.
The company understood the need to assess the candidates’ technical skills in a real-world scenario. NLG believed that making better selection decisions from the beginning could ensure reliable and successful hiring- internally and externally.
Therefore, the brand actively sought a recruitment partner that could employ innovation to deal with its challenges, including
Even after setting up a multi-level screening process, NLG could not filter quality candidates who could perform their jobs efficiently, as they did during the interviews. The company had an established process to assess the domain skills of tech candidates; however, there was significant scope for improvement in measuring the technical skills and competencies as per the job role. This gap was further preventing NLG from building a high-performing workforce. Therefore, it wanted to employ a dynamic, secure and scalable battery of coding assessments and simulators to comprehensively assess and evaluate candidates’ knowledge, skills and roles.
NLG also sought to reduce the hiring time by implementing solutions that could execute scalable assessments and save the hiring team’s time. NLG was scouting for solutions that could simultaneously assess multiple candidates without the need for continually invigilating them. The company also wanted an evidence-based analysis with detailed automated reports generated quickly – that could be an excellent predictor of a candidate’s potential and performance.
