4.92/5 (13 reviews)

Berke Assessment overview

Berke Assessment is a pre-employment assessment solution which provides customized assessments for evaluating the personality traits, talents, and skills of each candidate to determine their fit for a job. The software is suitable for businesses of all sizes, across a range of industries.

Berke generates custom assessments for each job profile, based on user-provided information on the most frequent activities, key tasks, and challenging aspects of each role, and analysis of high-performing existing employees in the same role. Core talents and behaviors are identified and prioritized, and an ideal range is generated to give an at-a-glance profile for the ideal candidate for the particular role. With online assessments, candidates can complete assessments from anywhere, generally in less than 1 hour. Results are immediately made available to users in job fit reports, with scores for each trait compared with the ideal range. Color-coding allows users to see each candidate’s performance at-a-glance, and multiple candidates can be compared side-to-side. Berke also provides users with insight into the potential impact of any mismatches on productivity and job performance.

Important Hiring Tool

Review Source: Capterra

Have been using the Berke Profile and its predecessor for over fifteen years. I've change industries from homebuilding to healthcare. I continue to use the Berke with management and professional candidates. When reviewing the Berke summary with candidates they are almost always amazed at how well the profile captures their personal characteristics relating to the environment of the open position. The Berke is easy to administer and the results are provided within minutes of the candidate completing the profile. Quite of bit of helpful information is provided with the completed profile so even a more inexperienced supervisor is able to successfully work their way through the information provided. I have watched the Berke report evolve with changing workforce demographics and needs. When the Berke is used as a tool in the hiring process, and not as the criteria for a hiring decision, the discussion between candidate and company representative is extremely productive for both parties.When I have taken the time to accurately provide a thorough job standard, the compatibility results are right on. Additionally, as I review the Berke with a candidate, it is not very far into the process before they are usually able to tell me where they are within the criteria before I discuss the actual Berke findings with them as we run through the summary report.

We are increasing the data in which we use to analyze applicants. The more information we can gather, the better our decision making process is. We have been able to save time not interviewing applicants who score low and ask direct questions that help us avoid poor hiring decisions. This of course saves our team time, money, and energy.The Berke assessment describes everyone in a positive manner, looking at behaviors and putting them in context of the job position. It adds another layer of data to our decision making process and provides questions to consider when interviewing each candidate. Each candidate (and our team) feels that the summary accurately describes them. This is a useful tool for our team leaders after the hire to know how to work best with each team member. We also like that you can send as many assessments as you like and pay a quarterly flat rate. This allows us to gather as much data as we need in order to make the best hiring decisions.

The customer support side has been wonderful. I know if I email them, they'll get back to me quickly and that they really want to help me be successful.The assessments are stunningly accurate. Showing results to a spouse or colleagues usually gets uncomfortable laughter as the results are so candid and true that people can't believe it. This service saves me so much time as a hiring manager. Working in mining and dealing with a candidate base of people unfamiliar with this type of work can make finding the right person tough. I do a quick phone screen followed by the Berke Assessment (which has the value to me of 3 in-person interviews). We move directly into a site visit and job shadowing from there, and we confidently make offers next. We're completely skipping the miserable classic interview process and moving forward with good data - never needing to just trust our guts on candidates.

Pros
  • Low price, good assessment with good, accurate results, easy to use
  • Its flexibility is choosing characteristics & skills needed to complete a job successfully. The scoring option that shows how close of a fit a candidate is to the job and specific interview questions!
  • The Berke assessment describes everyone in a positive manner, looking at behaviors and putting them in context of the job position.

Cons
  • The Integrity section needs to be strengthened.
  • Old interface and UI, could use a face lift. It is easy to use though, which is great!
  • Does not work well with our ATS (BambooHR). I have to sign into Berke to manage candidates and also manage them separately on our ATS.
  • It's hard! Just kidding, but some of our applicants do get a little stressed about some of the timed sections. Even this is helpful in learning about people however.
