Pre-Employment Screening
 


NewHire_Icon Do You Have a Way to Screen New Hires for Basic Skills?
The Pre-Employment Screening App can do it for you!

We know with the budget cuts that you are trying to do more with less. That doesn't mean you have to just roll up your sleeves and work harder.

Over the past 30 years, NMA has earned a reputation for quality. Every year we work with 95 - 97% of the nation's Housing Authorities. We work with everyone from front-line staff to executive directors and commissioners. What we're hearing time and time again is that they're spending a lot of time, money, and energy on hiring and training new employees.

It takes about six months to learn if a new hire is going to work out or not. That's six months of spending money on training, time on training, and energy on training only to learn that the employee doesn't have the basic skills required to do the job. That's where this pre-employment screening application came from.

Developed specifically for our Chicago office, with this screening we were able to hire about 100 people in the course of just a few weeks. Using a pre-assessment that tests basic grammar and math as well as critical thinking skills we were able to assemble a workforce that has proven themselves over the past 6 months. These assessments coupled with other pre-determined qualifiers (education levels, previous experience, etc.) are a big part of what made us successful in Chicago.

Save the money you would have spent on vetting new hires; use our pre-employment screening app and work smarter — not harder.
