Recruit better sales employees with an online sales assessment

Wednesday 05 June 2024

Hiring new sales staff is a frequent part of the tasks a recruiter, manager or human resource manager has to carry out. An online sales assessment ensures that you hire the right seller.

Hiring new sales staff is a frequent part of the tasks a (team)manager or human resources officer has to carry out. At smaller companies, where the director has to interfere with all sorts of things, there is often not even a person with a lot of experience in recruitment and selection, which is therefore quite risky. Hiring the "wrong" employee is expensive, a loss of energy and very frustrating for both parties. An online sales assessment ensures that you hire the right seller.

Suppose you are looking for a sales manager. But one that:

  • can think strategically;
  • provides management to 15 employees;
  • is responsible for international commercial policy;
  • can handle a lot of stress;
  • is known as a pleasant person and a people manager with a clear vision on leadership.

Assume that the candidates who have responded to the job description, claim to have these qualities. But is that the case? Is the candidate with the best background also the best candidate? And if we doubt, how are we going to find out? People simply do not fit into the organization as a matter of course. Personal background, norms and values, culture and experiences are sometimes only expressed during actual functioning, and sometimes that is too late. In very difficult positions, it is difficult to "adjust" the candidate in question. The "matching" between person and organization sometimes requires more than a "good feeling" during job interviews.

Lower costs

Through an online sales assessment you as a company reduce the risk to a "miss-fit". Of course there are costs associated with taking an assessment. However, these costs often are almost nothing compared arrival of a new sales employee or sales manager who in the end will makes spaces for another.
