The RoleFit Survey is changing how businesses recruit. This innovation saves companies significant time and money by picking up the slack left by traditional hiring methods, ensuring that the right person is hired for the right job. This summary succinctly explains HealthConnexions’ webinar on the subject.

Health Connexions’ work and innovations provide significant aid to businesses in search of new marketing and recruiting techniques, and the RoleFit Survey is no exception. The presenter of the webinar defines the aforementioned survey tool as a recruitment service that brings all applicants responding to a certain job posting together in a concise and clear way, listing them by rank.


The survey tool’s legal qualifications and examination by a third party ensure that the survey truly produces the results that it promises. The RoleFit Survey scrutinizes an applicant’s aptitude in many areas of competency in order to certify that the most qualified and most fitting individuals are placed at the top of the ranking system. This rigorous study of each applicant allows companies to feel confident that whoever they choose to hire is the best person for the job. The recruitment tool’s focus on multiple competency areas also aids companies in considering factors outside of hiring, such as identifying leadership characteristics, projecting potential career paths, and monitoring employee engagement levels.


The first speaker following the introduction, Dawn Van Dam, addresses the wide use of RoleFit Survey throughout seventeen time zones, despite the fact that advertisement of the survey has been fairly minimal. The survey tool works well for companies who seek to improve their recruitment processes. In fact, in 2013, companies who determined final candidates for open positions using traditional recruiting methods found that 51% of those final candidates failed their background checks.


Traditional hiring techniques also have led to available positions requiring twenty-one to twenty-two weeks and eighty-six hours to fill, on average. Usually, half of those eighty-six hours are spent on narrowing all applicants into a short list. The RoleFit Survey turns these forty-three hours of works into mere minutes, leaving recruiters with job-tailored applicant short lists, ranked according to applicants’ competency in many different areas. The survey tool therefore helps companies save both time and (on average) $1,260 for every hire. When it comes to recruitment, this tool’s capabilities far surpass those of typically-used personality tests.


This leading-edge survey tool is the only option on the market that considers an applicant’s actual aptitude on the job, not just their experience and their ability to convince the hiring manager of their potential.


The RoleFit Survey presents every applicant to a particular job posting with a survey that takes ten to twelve minutes. To set up the survey, employers need only create a job profile and paste the survey link into their job posting. The recruitment survey results produce three kinds of output reports that can be utilized by different individuals and for varying purposes, in line with a company’s needs.


The Comparative Report looks at the fittingness of an applicant for a particular job, marking each applicants’ competency in various areas with red, yellow, and green marks and ranks applicants by their score according to these marks. This kind of report is designed for use by recruiters and hiring managers.


The Vault Report sees how applicants measure up to a normative database of thousands of other RoleFit Survey takers. Hiring managers and recruiters can utilize the Vault Report to create interview questions, and employees can use it to see how they rival others in their field.


The final report produced by the recruitment tool, known as the Career Guidance Report, is designed to help employees and applicants discover if there is a job that they would better fit than their current role or the ones they are applying for, by assessing applicants in comparison to a database of more than 1,200 jobs.


The second speaker, Gary L. Melling, demonstrates how to use the RoleFit Survey from a recruiter perspective. The formatting of the recruitment survey program allows a company to customize how applicant survey information is presented to them, such as selecting the minimally-accepted range of scores and narrowing which results from a certain job posting are shown. The survey tool utilizes multiple algorithms, even looking at behavioral factors. Each of the three types of reports include a wealth of information and specific details, like the significance of the fifty-four competency area scores.


A demonstration of how the survey tool can be used in an employee’s repurposing is also provided, showing how new information about an employee’s abilities can be ascertained through the Career Guidance Report’s recalculation of competency scores within a certain job family. The RoleFit Survey can also pinpoint if an applicant has been honest in their representation of themselves and can be used as a company’s sole recruitment tool.
