No. Companies like ZipRecruiter and Indeed are still an important resource in the hiring process. Think of eHire as an enabler allowing you the ability to quickly identify the best qualified and capable candidates that are worth your time.
What does the eHire process assess?
We assess cognitive and behavioral fit for the position for which a candidate is applying. Additionally, we provide insight into a candidate's interpersonal communication skills. This ensures that you'll never have to ask the question "How did this person get through to me?"
I already have a Human Resource department so why would I need eHire Solutions?
This is one of the most asked questions we receive and our response is always the same; Is hiring your core competency? By partnering with eHire, a company can redeploy HR resources to work on more meaningful projects that create value for its employees. Subjects such as employee wellness, improving insurance costs, succession planning, professional development, rewards and recognition programs, and enhanced benefits are just a few examples.
As an HR Manager, what will be my role in the hiring process should I use eHire?
Your role will be ensuring that qualified candidates are being met with in a timely manner. Additionally, you will be required to assess the cultural fit of the qualified individuals eHire will be highlighting for you. Lastly, you will track the performance of each hired individual so that there is a business justification for continuing to use eHire services.
Are there benefits that eHire provides for situations like the Covid-19 pandemic?
The eHire process can greatly reduce the number of candidates that you'll come into contact with. This helps reduce the risk to you and your team members during a time of a pandemic where social distancing is important.
Are the assessments you use valid?
Assessments have been recognized and embraced by progressive companies for 40+ years. Assessment instruments are typically created by industrial psychologists who have determined that they can often predict if an individual is a good fit for a role based upon having the candidate answering a battery of questions. The EEOC makes it clear that no assessment may discriminate based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability. EEOC goes further by stating that assessments cannot be used if if they disproportionately exclude people in a particular group by race, sex, or another covered basis, unless the employer can justify the test or procedure under the law. You can be assured that all assessments offered by eHire have undergone stringent testing and validation to ensure that they are in compliance with all regulatory requirements including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964..
How does eHire charge for their service?
eHire charges a monthly subscription fee for each position that a client is trying to fill. This fee is charged until the position is filled or the client chooses to discontinue using eHire. Unlike third party recruiters that can charge 20-35% of a candidates first year income, eHire does not charge any premium up and above the monthly subscription amount.
