"It’s a good test from our perspective. The candidates that do well in the test certainly seem to be our better performers"
Arran Finlayson, CEO, The Back Office Co, Auckland, NZ
I found the test quite easy to use and interpret and I am really pleased to have this service at my disposal in the future.
It’s just a bit more objective when employing staff than going by their interview skills alone.
I will definitely keep your contact details for the next hire I do. I will also recommend you to other accountants that I network with regularly.
