Candidate's view of their personal Plum Profile:
A candidate’s personal Plum Profile lists their top three Talents, their Work Style and their Work Preferences. This information is private unless a candidate makes their Profile Public to share it with their peers. We acknowledge that you may be interested in seeing the candidate's personal Plum Profile, however it may alter your judgment and push you toward non-optimal and biased hiring decisions. This version of the Plum Profile was not designed to be used by employers to make hiring decisions.
Here is why:
1. Making a recruitment decision based on a candidate's Plum Profile would go against compliance with the EEOC guidelines.
You can only evaluate a candidate based on job specific criteria. Assessing a candidate based on other psychometric information that is not job-relevant does involve a risk for the employer, should the hiring decision be contested by the candidate.
2. The candidate version of the Plum Profile does not in any way indicate a higher performance than average in comparison to other candidates of the Talent pool.
A candidate could have "Managing Others" as their Top Talent on their personal Plum Profile, however when assessed against your Talent Pool, they could still rank low in that Talent compared to other candidates. It is therefore not valuable quantitative data to base a hiring decision upon.
Plum’s employer-facing candidate profile (Match Scores, Talent rings, detailed indicators on Talent and competency performance) shows how a candidate performs in a Talent compared to the other candidates of our sample data, and therefore of the employer's Talent pool. This ranking element helps making the best recruitment decisions.
Employer view of a candidate's Plum Profile:
The employer version of candidate profiles in Plum Recruiting is designed to provide granular information about a candidate's performance on the Talents from the Match Criteria that were identified as being important for the role. Therefore, it contains the job-specific and pertinent information that a leader requires to make the best hiring decision.
