In today's job market, employers are increasingly using online tools to conduct pre-employment testing. Such tools are used to screen job applicants and can include testing of professional knowledge, cognitive ability, career skills, personality traits, soft skills, language proficiency, and more.

If you're like most employers, your top recruiting priority is to get great people into the talent pipeline—and more importantly, to keep them there. Unfortunately, a job applicant's first impression of a company is sometimes a long, complicated online job application that may or may not be accessible.  

Finding good employees is not what it used to be. Instead of candidates mailing or dropping off hard copy resumes to your place of business, most candidates today discover job openings through online searches. It's a trend that is benefiting employers and job seekers alike.

So we've establishedboth through PEAT's survey and subsequent reportwhy accessibility matters to eRecruiting.

Of course any initiative you undertake boils down to the return on investment, and accessibility should be no exception. Thankfully, purchasing and using accessible technology—including accessible eRecruiting tools—can benefit your organization immensely. Read on to learn how...

Imagine that the only thing standing between you and your dream applicant is an online job application that prevents the candidate from clicking the "next" button. It's a common scenario faced by many job seekers with disabilities, and inaccessible technology used during the hiring process is the root cause. Such issues can create employment barriers to qualified candidates and can cause you to miss out on potentially great hires.

Some know it as "pre-employment." Others simply call it "recruiting and interviewing." Whatever the label, we're all referring to the first stage of the employment lifecycle. And that, of course, is the focus of this tool.

TalentWorks is a free online tool for employers and human resources professionals that helps them ensure their online job applications and other eRecruiting technologies are accessible to job seekers with disabilities. PEAT created the tool based on its national survey of people with disabilities, where 46% of respondents rated their last experience applying for a job online as "difficult to impossible."

With most of today's employers using some form of web recruiting to evaluate and hire job applicants, it's more important than ever for organizations to understand why accessibility matters to the "eRecruiting" phase of the employment lifecycle. This summer, PEAT concluded its national survey on user experiences related to the accessibility of online job applications and other eRecruiting tools. Check out our new infographic summarizing the survey results, and stay tuned as PEAT develops new tools and resources related to this critical issue.
