10,000 recruiters use AssessFirst every day to analyse their candidates’ profile and uncover their potential.
The features and integration possibilities of AssessFirst enable all of them, regardless of how big their company is or the volume of candidates they handle, to make better selection decisions. With AssessFirst, you send an invitation to your candidates in a single click, view their results just 10 minutes later and in just two clicks easily identify those who have the right profile to succeed in your organisation. You can also simulate how the finalists will integrate into the teams already in place. The best thing about all this is that with AssessFirst, you can assess your candidates for free and get a first-level analysis of each of them, with no limitations on volume or timeframe.
How it all began…
AssessFirst began in August 2002, when two childhood friends – David Bernard (Business Psychologist & Rocket Scientist) and Alexis Teplitchi (The IT Guy) – realised how difficult it was for recruiters to make the most of existing assessment solutions (too arduous to implement, too complex to use, etc.). Together, we decided to change the way things are done.
At the time, AssessFirst had no financing or line of credit. Rather than look for investors, we set out to develop the best assessment solution ever designed, find customers, satisfy them, and also surprise them, day after day.
Today, AssessFirst is entirely self-financed and very profitable. We have no debts to pay back or investors to report to. We are entirely free in how we manage our company. As a result of this, every year we can continue to invest hugely in Science & Innovation in order to improve our solutions and make the decisions that will, above all, serve the long-term success of our company.
We’re progressing quickly!
A year ago there were eight of us. Today, AssessFirst is run by 20 extremely passionate collaborators and is growing by over 30% each year. AssessFirst now has 3,500 customer organisations worldwide, 10,000 users and over 5,000,000 tests taken in 12 languages. Our customers are both small individual businesses and international groups active around the world. We place equal importance on both of them. We know where we came from and haven’t forgotten how difficult it is to find trusted partners when you’re starting out in business.
In Diversity We Trust
When we recruit, we have no fixed ideas. The background, training and experience of the candidates we recruit is of little importance. We’re only concerned with who they are, their potential and their ability to express this within our Universe. At AssessFirst, there are scientists, psychologists and IT specialists, as well as actors, kitesurfing fans, writing enthusiasts, yoga practitioners, etc. All of them share the same passion for discovering and developing talent.
We take care of our community
Every year, we provide the equivalent of a quarter of a million euros in training to nearly 200 psychology students. We teach them to utilise the big data and people analytics approach to increase their impact on the success of organisations. We also speak at dozens of business schools to raise awareness among tomorrow’s directors about predictive recruitment.
