Better Screening Tools for Workplace Safety and Hiring


Improve Facility Production

At Select International, we know the manufacturing industry. Our comprehensive and customized solutions for manufacturing will help you identify, select and develop employees who are more likely to succeed and contribute to the organization.

We understand the skills and competencies that are necessary for an individual to succeed in a manufacturing environment, and our pre-employment screening tests make it easy to find the right candidates.

Whether you’re hiring for hourly, supervisor or managerial positions, Select International has the right employment screening tests to help you build a strong workforce.

Reduce Employee Turnover

Manufacturing hiring presents some unique challenges in identifying safe and productive individuals from the candidate pool. A good pre-employment test helps busy HR professionals eliminate sub-par candidates and identify the best possible hires.

Select Assessment® for Manufacturing measures candidates for hourly positions in manufacturing environments.


Hire Safe Employees

Most safety programs treat everyone as if they are all the same; assuming that if everyone is trained the same way they will be equally and inherently safe.  However, the truth is, we are all “hard wired” somewhat differently, and some people are simply more at risk of injury than others.  

That’s why Select International’s approach to safety focuses on developing the individual first to improve the safety performance of the entire group.

Reducing Turnover in Manufacturing

We have a saying when we approach a new project: “Begin with the end in mind.” It makes sense to have a goal or expected outcome so that you can calculate successes and meet or exceed expectations. The concept is simple really. Your goal should not simply be to fill positions, but rather to fill and keep those positions filled. 

This Tip Sheet discusses the high cost of turnover and four ways your organization can reduce it, through a better manufacturing hiring process.


Production Simulations

Manufacturing hiring often means hiring candidates for a job they’ve never exactly performed before, even if they’ve held many similar positions. Adding a production simulation to your assessment process can be another way to further evaluate candidates’ skills. Click below to learn more about our Production Simulations.
