The Prospect Screener allows organisations to process a large number of job applicants in a short space of time, allowing for the screening out of candidates that do not meet the minimum requirements.

Organisations spend a great deal of time and money on selection systems such as interviews, assessment instruments, and reference checking. It is important for organisations to ensure the cost-effectiveness of their processes, while retaining the highest standard of candidate. The Prospect Screener measures basic job capabilities in order to exclude those candidates that do not meet the basic requirements for selection. By measuring constructs such as basic vocabulary and arithmetic, detail-orientation, emotional stability, and dependability, the Prospect Screener acts as a starting point for further assessment.

The Prospect Screener will primarily be used to identify candidates who do not meet the basic requirements of the job. Successful candidates would then undergo more thorough assessments to ensure candidate suitability for the specific job.
