Value Added Services
To enhance the effectiveness of the hiring process, TALAUG offers the following Pre-Employment Testing services:
Cognitive Ability Tests
Cognitive ability tests measure a job applicant’s ability to analyze information, solve problems, understand details, and communicate idea. Research has established that high scores on cognitive ability tests are the best predictors of a successful hire.
Personality tests measure a job applicant’s competitiveness, corporate citizenship, work attitude and other interests and motivations.
Job Knowledge Tests
Job knowledge tests use multiple choice, hot-spot, fill-in-the-blank, or essay items to evaluate a candidate’s working knowledge of topics relevant to the job role.
Work Samples and Simulations
These require the candidate to perform activities that are similar to activities that would be completed on the job. For example, a test-taker might have to respond to a customer complaint, analyze customer feedback emails, or measure an object.
Besides checking for show-stoppers in candidates past (Criminal Records, Falsification of Information, Affiliations, Substance Abuse), Background Verification can be very effective in delving into items that reflect a candidate’s past work performance, including tenure, employer feedback, education and other factors used to predict success on the job.
Hiring Process Optimization:
To enhance the efficiency and candidate experience of the hiring process, TALAUG offers the following solutions / services:
Automation and outsourcing the new employee documentation process and getting almost all of it out of the way prior to candidate joining. This helps reduce the time, effort and cost of this process. This also reduces the single biggest area of new employee dissatisfaction during the first day, while making more time available for activities designed to make a positive impact.
A large chunk of the information heavy part of induction is dealt with before a new employee joins through a combination of personal interaction with trained TALAUG personnel and automation.
Technical University Hiring Effectiveness:
University hiring is often a core element of the talent pipeline. There are two major problems with this: 1) It’s a lot of effort and; 2) A vast majority of the university hires in India are nowhere close to hitting the ground running: it takes them 6-12 months to become productive. TALAUG has services that significantly reduce the problems clients face:
Outsourced University Hiring

The impact of our intervention would be that candidates hired would be ready to deploy on projects / assignments between 0 to 3 months of joining. The benefits are immense: Significantly reduced cost and enhanced effectiveness.
