Quicker, faster and just as effective, online pre-employment assessments are delivering the same results as traditional methods in a fraction of the time.

Turnaround time of pre-employment medical assessments is one of the biggest bugbears of recruiters, and now that hurdle has been conquered by technology.

An online screening can be completed within one business day if there is no significant risk of pre-existing injury detected, and in three days if a physical examination is required.

In some cases, traditional, face-to-face medical screenings could take up to a month for results to be returned.

The online system is straightforward and an ideal option for those in isolated rural communities.

An effective online questionnaire will reveal a potential employee’s risk of injury and determine if a physical examination is required. If no further assessment is needed, the report is returned within 1 business day.

If the physical assessment is required for musculoskeletal and functional checks, a telehealth assessment between the candidate and a medical professional can return results in three business days.

The tests are legal and just as valid as the traditional methods. Suremploy has a sample of over 70,000 online assessments and found the results only differed by 1% from the traditional face to face method.
