About Berke

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.

    Working with them is a breeze. Their customer service to their science team are just great people and people you can trust.

    Pros

    Berke is great in customizing their assessment process, so my clients understand how a candidate will fill within their company.

    Cons

    I would like to see options for more in depth assessments.

    Important Hiring Tool

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    I really do not have any issues or suggestions for improvement. After having been involved with so many profiles I do find it easier to find the more subtle nuances in the summary. Not sure there is anything but time in service with the Berke which will bring many of those to the surface for discussion.

    Thank you Bill. We appreciate the feedback!

    I cannot count on the assessments and for the price, it is completely not worth it.

    Pros

    Easy to email a candidate, have them take the assessment and get the results.

    Cons

    I find it to be inaccurate. Some of the candidates who tested high did not even come close to working out and quite a few of our best people tested as medium. Even some of our borderline medium to low candidates have really excelled while candidates who should have been better at the job according to Berke did not last 30 days.

    Accurate & Useable

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Response from Berke

    Thanks, Hannah. We are happy that Berke has helped you make more informed 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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Response from Berke

    Thank you! I am pleased to hear that Berke has helped you save time and helps you better get to know your candidates.
