FurstPerson Reinvents Talent Selection With Launch of Innovative FurstPerson Express

New Solution Built Upon Company's Extensive Research Database; Enables Recruiters to Make Smarter, Faster Hiring Decisions

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- FurstPerson, a Chicago-based provider of talent assessment solutions, today announced the release of FurstPerson Express, a patent-pending, web-based solution that empowers small and mid-sized businesses to create talent screening solutions specifically tailored to each job's unique requirements and culture at a fraction of the time and cost of conventional approaches.

FurstPerson Express delivers superior accuracy and return-on-investment over off-the-shelf assessment approaches. FurstPerson Express provides a quick, easy-to-follow workflow that enables small and mid-sized companies to overcome the time, resource, and cost constraints that traditionally forced them to adopt a one-size-fits-all assessment process. With the release of FurstPerson Express, organizations of any size can design a talent assessment process that is valid, accurate and customized to their specific business needs.

Built upon industry-leading research on front-line service, support and sales jobs, FurstPerson Express makes it quick and easy to get started. The system walks a company representative through some basic questions about the business and job. Afterwards the representative will identify a group of the company's subject matter experts to fill out a brief survey about the job. Once the surveys are finished, FurstPerson Express does everything else -- the system uses advanced analytics to design a talent solution that is customized specifically to the company's job(s) and business requirements. FurstPerson Express also produces a complete technical report that describes the research, recommendations, and potential impact on various demographic groups.

"There's a dire need for talent assessment tools -- especially among small and mid-sized companies," said Kyle Lagunas, talent acquisition analyst at Brandon Hall Group. "In Brandon Hall Group's 2014 State of Talent Acquisition Report, half of hiring organizations with fewer than 1000 employees rated their assessment technology as less than effective. By enabling employers to quickly evolve their assessment capabilities, FurstPerson Express is giving them a competitive edge over their peers that is invaluable."

"FurstPerson is dedicated to creating innovative talent solutions that help companies achieve unprecedented results," said Jeff Furst, CEO of FurstPerson. "FurstPerson Express packages decades of science and professional expertise into a simple, elegant toolkit that allows companies to embed their unique values and requirements directly into the talent assessment process. The outcome is a made-to-order solution that outperforms off-the-shelf assessment approaches by 20% to 50%."
