Navigating Skills Assessment in the New Digital Era

Traditionally, potential employees were assessed on their domain knowledge, communication skills, aptitude, and attitude. However, they were instinctive, on-the-spot judgments that are prone to errors and biases. And through time and experience, businesses have learned that they need a more scientific approach to recruitment and hiring.

A recent industry report found that 86% of organizations moved hiring and assessment online during the pandemic and yet 30% had no technology infrastructure in place for online hiring or assessment.

To answer the need for an intelligent, self-evolving, customizable, scalable, unified skills testing application, the Infosys Assessment Platform was created. And it has already successfully transformed testing for enterprises by offering a streamlined, automated window for anytime, anywhere and on any device assessment.
