The Challenge

Our client, a multinational telecommunications company based in China, was using paper assessments to evaluate their software engineering job applicants. This made their recruitment process inefficient, expensive and led to candidates regularly dropping out of the recruitment funnel. They required a solution that:

  • increased the speed of the hiring cycle and put results in the hands of HR faster
  • more accurately assessed software engineer on-the-job potential
  • reduced long candidate wait times and improved conversion rates

Automation and candidate experience were clear areas for improvement.

Digital assessment reduced offline expenses by 45%, enhancing hiring efficiency.


Interview-to-Hire Ratio Boost

Higher-quality talent led to a 40% increase in interview-to-hire ratio.


Faster Selection Process

Our client needed to immediately migrate their analog assessment process to digital. SHL quickly deployed a tech hiring solution that:

  • comprehensively evaluated programming knowledge with powerful IDE-based simulations and a wide range of online technical skill tests
