Benchmark Study

A Benchmark Study from HighMatch helps you filter for those candidates that display the research-backed traits that have historically strengthened your organization.

What is A Benchmark Study?

A HighMatch Benchmark Study collects data from your employees by having them complete an assessment. We then synthesize their results to better understand the most common and consistent traits amongst your best performers. This data can be used to filter for candidates that display the research-backed traits that have historically strengthened your organization.

How A Benchmark Study
Optimizes Your Workplace

A Benchmark Study from HighMatch will help identify candidates that are most likely to be successful in the role and in your organization. This, in turn, will improve retention rates and reduce turnover, as candidates are being recruited into a space where their skills and talents are more likely to shine.

How the Process Works

Invite your team members in a specific job to complete the assessment, and ask their managers to rate their job performance. HighMatch’s research team analyzes the data and uses predictive statistics to identify the traits that separate your top performers from everyone else. The result is a finely tuned hiring profile that shows you who to hire next and who to avoid.

Real-World Scenario

An organization has an urgent need for new salespeople to join their team. But they aren’t looking for just any sales person, they specifically need candidates that are able to sell a highly specialized product.

They use a HighMatch Benchmarking Study to build a detailed profile based on data that’s been collected on the most consistent traits of their high-performing employees.

Equipped with this information, they are able to evaluate all candidates against their high-performer benchmark, increasing their chances of finding candidates that will find success with their organization.
