|APSIT aims to reduce hiring errors and optimise the HR process for its clients using IKM’s assessment solutions
|London, UK – Friday, March 17, 2006IKM, a leading provider of web-based employee and candidate knowledge measurement solutions and services, and APSIT, a provider of IT Human Resources Services, today announced a partnership agreement that provides APSIT the distributorship of IKM’s solutions within France and Luxemburg.
APSIT will integrate IKM’s solutions to offer global HR services with a department dedicated to Skills Assessment. Incorporating IKM’s objective assessments allows APSIT to provide management services (general, HR, Technical, IT, Sales) that will support and optimise recruitment, training, project planning, skill audits and overall workforce management.
Unlike other solutions, IKM’s unique assessment methodology provides the greatest amount of feedback of a candidate’s or employee’s exact strengths and weaknesses in the shortest possible time. Known for its flagship IT solution, IKM TeckChekTM, IKM offers assessments in most industries and disciplines including sales, Project Management, ERP and basic computer skills.
“Strategic elements such as limiting the risks, ensuring return on investment or consolidating human capital have been our clients’ priority for a long time. Until now, the only solutions available in France were dedicated to big companies, and were extremely expensive and exclusive. Thanks to our partnership with IKM, any company big or small can access world-leading assessments to suit their needs, size and budgets,” said Mr Alexis Cabiraud, CEO, APSIT.
For over 5 years, APSIT has developed a network of over 22 000 experts, specialising in the IT and Telecom sectors. With IKM, APSIT’s recruitment solution will provide more insight into candidates and employee’s knowledge levels that will reduce bad recruitment and associated costs, shorten hiring cycles and optimise the overall HR process. IKM’s assessments will also allow APSI to take an active part in recent regulations on anonymous resumes that protects individuals against discrimination in the workplace.
“To assess and manage skills objectively is the foundation of any long-lasting development,” said Cabiraud.
“We are delighted to have APSIT as a user and distributor of IKM’s assessments. Both companies share a common goal to add value to our clients HR processes and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership,” said Dr Marie-Paule Donsimoni, CEO, IKM.
