Many businesses were obliged to immediately change their employment and working methods as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Traditional in-person hiring procedures were no longer practical or secure due to social distancing policies in place and the prevalence of remote working. As a result, many businesses started embracing online tools and platforms to carry out virtual assessments, interviews, and other hiring-related tasks.
A recent study by HirePro, a provider of recruitment automation and assessment solutions, offers insightful information about candidates’ dishonest behavior during online exams. The study’s goal is to give employers the tools they need to cope with candidates’ cheating.
Out of the 43 lakh assessments completed on its platform in the last 12 months, HirePro used a sample size of 9 lakh assessments completed in the last six months for this study.
