Custom assessments

Why did I start PerfectlyHired?

Initially, I went to typical recruiters and tried out some candidates. But I was shocked to see that the candidates that I received were bad to mediocre.

The problem was these candidates weren't being vetted effectively for cognitive ability, personality, and skills.

There was some online softwares that promised to vet candidates, but these were ineffective, as they only weeded out the worst people.

I found myself hiring someone and realizing anywhere between 1-12 months later that they weren't skilled, or adaptive to new environments.

This was a life and death moment for the business, since every wrong person I hired and fired was extremely costly. Costly in terms of hiring, onboarding, branding/morale, severance, and delayed project costs.

I had 30 employees at the time, many of whom were hired through professional recruiters, but they weren't implementing my vision effectively. Some of the employees were good out of sheer luck, but the rest were mediocre to ineffective.

I would try out many people and keep the best ones I could find. This was very costly, but I didn't know how else I could determine who was good or not.

Recruiters didn't test for cognitive ability or skills. They did shallow background checks and called some previous employers, but this was not effective.

My business was not going to succeed with mediocre talent. So I spent the next 5 years putting applicants through a battery of cognitive tests to see which tests were actually predictive of workplace performance.

Over this time and after evaluating a myriad of cognitive tests on both good and bad employees, I started to see a pattern emerge of which tests were predictive and which weren't for a given role.

At this point, I fired everyone in my company within a 12 month period, and hired a completely new team.

With this new team, the first mission was to fix all the problems created by the previous team. We revamped the codebase, marketing, design, management, and the core services we offered.

The vision stayed exactly the same, but the implementation was wildly different.

The new team allowed us to turn the company around and not only succeed but also become resilient.

It turned out that the the right mix of ability and skills assessments were really effective at selecting for the best talent. I could predict with close to 100% certainty who would be the best candidate out of thousands of applicants, without wasting my time interviewing them.

I'm a serial entrepreneur, and I've always known that the key to success in my businesses is the talent. If you have a good team and a good idea, then it will succeed. However, if you don't have a good team, even good ideas can fail.
