Looking for a new solution to improve your recruitment process? Wondering how to speed up the recruitment process so it takes less time? Do you want to take care of a positive candidate experience? Or maybe you want to improve your employer branding? A language audit is a perfect solution!
Language audit – what is it about?
A language audit is a professional verification of the knowledge of a foreign language, which evaluates multiple language skills in accordance with the CEFR scale. The language audits available on the Focus platform are both prepared and verified by qualified linguists, so we can ensure the highest quality and reliability of the assessment. Language audits are used in many situations, e.g. recruitment audits are great for verifying candidates, and full audits are often used as level audits, progress audits and to verify the level of language proficiency needed to receive bonuses.
How do you organise a language audit?
Arranging language audits with Focus is trivially easy – the fastest option is to add access data for auditees yourself, simply select the test and the language of communication, provide the basic details of the auditee and select how long the test is to be active. The order to add audits can also be submitted to the coordinator assigned to your company. The auditee will receive an invitation to solve the test along with all of the necessary information – as soon as the audit is completed, it is immediately forwarded to one of our auditors for checking. Depending on the type of audit, you will receive a report with complete results within 24 or 48 hours.
Recruitment audit, level audit, comprehensive audit – what should you choose?
It is best to use solutions that offer a wide range of ready-to-use audits, as well as support in choosing the best test for your needs. At Focus, you can always count on the assistance of a coordinator. Moreover, we can fully adapt the audit to your company’s needs.
How long does a language audit take?
This depends on the type of audit you choose, e.g. the average time needed to complete a recruitment audit is only 30 minutes. On the other hand, the average time for a full audit is usually about 1.5 hours. At Focus, we use a number of solutions that allow us to adjust the time the auditee needs to spend on the audit to your requirements.
How can you improve employer branding with language audits?
With Focus, you can do this without any problems – you can set up additional personalisation of the communication with the auditee for free and selected pages displayed during the test. You can also ask some extra questions before the audit itself that may be useful for your internal evaluation of the candidate or employee. Furthermore, we have noticed that the auditees themselves appreciate the use of our language audits as part of their recruitment – they perceive our customers as being up-to-date, willing to use new technologies, appreciating independent and professional assessment and respecting candidates’ time.
