Arch Advisory Group is helping modernize the hiring process by solving large-scale recruitment challenges. They help guide clients in critical talent attraction strategies and bring clarity to the current Talent Acquisition landscape.
In 2022 Gary Benedik, president of Arch Advisory Group, realized that there was an urgent need to find a better way to assess and evaluate candidates at scale.
At the time, he and his team followed the following process:
- Collect candidate leads via direct headhunting, networking or job ad.
- Review candidate applications and resumes.
- Screen candidates with interviews.
- Hand-over candidate to HR/Recruiters.
Screening interviews and resumes assisted his teams in identifying highly suitable candidates, but he realized there was a need to evaluate the candidate’s real-world skills better (objectively).
What problems were they facing?
Arch Advisory Group screened and processed upwards of 80+ candidates every month, for mid to senior-level roles across multiple industries.
Each candidate needed to be interviewed and assessed and subjectively comparing based on the requirements of Arch’s clients.
The challenge was to validate the skills that candidate’s had listed on their resume and ensure they were accurate.
This was an essential part of identifying the best people for their clients.
But how could they tell if a candidate had the necessary technical skills to fill a high-tech role?
The more technical a role, the more complex the field, the more difficult it was to evaluate a candidate’s technical ability for a job role.
For this reason, Gary sought a more accurate way of evaluating candidates to compare their skills.
After Gary signed up for a free trial of Testlify, he explored the platform and soon decided to use it in his recruitment process.
He quickly identified areas where he could improve his recruitment process:
- Quickly create role-specific assessments.
- Test both technical skills and aptitudes.
- Monitor results in real-time.
- Manage large amounts of applicants at once.
Once a candidate was approved after screening, they were sent a Testlify assessment to complete.
The results of those assessments were then handed over to the hiring manager, with the candidate’s resume and any additional information.
This gave hiring managers a broader array of information with deeper insights to help them select the best candidates for a role.
