Only 12 minutes is enough to hire a person
Cognitive Ability Speed Test (CAST), which decides whether the person will, fits for the job or not in 12 minutes. The new e-commerce sites started this hiring process. This recruitment processes will take less time to select a candidate. HR managers have evolved this new hiring tool, which is finding favour with firms such as Snapdeal, Ola Cabs, Quikr, Foodpanda, Practo and WNS. Typically, ‘speed hiring’ involves candidates being tested for their cognitive abilities in just about 12 minutes. Offer letters are given to candidates found suitable.
CAST is similar like all other written tests
“Life moves very fast and the scenario changes every fortnight. Therefore, it is important to show results to investors. So, it may not be viable to invest half of the time in recruiting,” says Sunil Goel, MD of executive search firm GlobalHunt. The Cognitive Ability Speed Test (CAST), developed by assessment platform CoCubes Technologies, carries 50 objective-type questions on English grammar, ratios, percentages and inductive reasoning to assess the cognitive abilities of candidates.
