Pre-Employment Tests, Should You Use Them And Why?
There are 3 most common pre-employment tests that most employers require their candidates to take during the recruitment process. They include personality, cognitive and aptitude tests that should be done before being hired. These tests focus on collecting data on the applicants to aid in making the ideal decision on who to hire. The tests are very important and should be included in the recruitment process. Here are some of the reasons why the tests should be used:
1. They help narrow down the number of applicants
One position may have well over 500 applications all with all the required skills and qualifications. Without such tests, narrowing down the number of applicants to remain with the competent few can be very challenging. The tests help in identifying the candidates who stand out among the rest.
2. They help you hire the right candidates
These tests also help you get the best candidates with all the desirable traits and qualifications. In this era, you cannot rely on paper qualifications only to judge a potential employee. You need more assessment before making the final decision. Pre-employment testing helps you identify candidates who are exceptional and have what it takes to fill the vacant job position.
3. It lessens the chance of hiring bad employees
This is also another reason why you must use pre-employment tests in your recruitment process. Assessing the personality, cognitive and aptitude capability of a candidate gives you an idea of what the person is about. This allows you to decide whether the candidate is suitable for the position or not. This reduces the probability of hiring an incompetent person.
4. These tests save on time
It might take some time to assess and analyze all the applications without using the pre-employment tests. This becomes rather involving especially when time is limited. However, these assessments help in narrowing down to the top candidates for the job within a much shorter duration of time. This also helps save on resources used in the recruitment process.
5. They improve your interviews
All the questions included in the tests often focus on specific issues that relate directly to the advertised post. As such, you can analyze the understanding and readiness of each candidate individually. This helps improve the interviewing process by making sure that everything flows in order.
Apart from the discussed use, pre-employment tests are very crucial since they contribute towards employee retention. Using this strategy helps you get the right employees who are up for the task. Therefore, there is no need to replace them with more competent and productive ones. This boosts the overall performance of the company.

Clone of Story of nitrogen dynamics in a shallow lake
This story presents a conceptual model of nitrogen cycling in a dune-lake system in the Northland region of New Zealand. It is based on the concept of a stock and flow diagram. Each orange ellipse represents an input, while each blue box represents a stock. Each arrow represents a flow. A flow involves a loss from the stock at which it starts and an addition to the stock at which it ends.

Private Utility's Objective: Provision of a Public Good or Profit?
Public utilities do not need to make a profit. They can concentrate on providing a quality service, a public good. By contrast, the primary objective of private utilities is not to provide a public good, but profit and profitability. This simple CLD tries to show the conflict that can arise from this and a hidden dynamic, a reinforcing feedback loop, that can lead to disaster. Unfortunately, there are examples where failure in infrastructure maintenance has led to disaster. On the 9th of July 2009, the German newspaper 'Welt Online' reported that the authorities in Berlin had to intervene and force the company that was running Berlin's S-Bahn (suburban rail service) to withdraw half of all the city's trains from service because they were considered unsafe! Something similar happened in the UK where failure to maintain rail tracks led to serious accidents.
