Impact Study

A Business Impact Study from HighMatch analyzes the impact of your personalized assessment on a set of predefined business success metrics.

What is a Business Impact Study?

A Business Impact Study in the pre-employment assessment space looks at the impact of an assessment on a predefined list of related business success metrics.

Clearly defining what success looks prior to implementation benefits both client and a vendor alike, and ensures both organizations are aligned around the metrics that matter most to your specific company.

A HighMatch Business Impact Study takes that one step further, providing an in-depth, data-driven analysis on the efficacy of the assessment on the defined success metrics and tying that success back to fiscal goals.

Wayne Homes uses HighMatch to Identify Qualified Applicants

Hear from Michael Luckie-Ewing, former VP of People and Culture at Wayne Homes, a custom home builder serving 5 states for over 40 years.

Michael and his team used HighMatch to better filter applicants for the qualities and skills that contribute to success across every role in their organization.

How It Works

A Business Impact Study often starts prior to implementation, where business success metrics are defined and benchmarks and historicals for those metrics are pulled.

After a predetermined time, typically 6-9 months post implementation, those same metrics as pulled.

Factors influencing these metrics are analyzed and their impact modeled out using available data, and a determination is made as to the impact your HighMatch solution had on these metrics.

All of this data and analysis is compiled into an easy-to-read report, ready to be circulated to relevant stakeholders.
