What is Plum?

Plum is a SaaS platform for pre-employment assessment that makes it possible to quantify company culture and attitude. The solution assesses candidates from different aspects, including attitude, behavior, problem solving abilities and social intelligence. It significantly reduces the time required to go through resumes and interviewing candidates, while also decreasing the amount of time required to train.

The short role analysis survey allows recruiters to select the most important traits required for each job, while software’s intelligent algorithm calculates an overall score of each applicant based on those traits. Candidates can take the pre-employment assessment test through Plum or an existing application tracking system. Hiring managers complete the Employer Survey, which allows teams to determine the real-world needs of roles, instead of relying solely on skills and formal qualifications.

Overview of Plum Benefits

Plum is based on the assumption that factors such as formal education and professional experiences are not the reliable and the only predictors of performance at workplace, while resumes also don’t tell much about attitude and behavior of the applicants. This is where pre-employment surveys try to fill the gap as the screening questions are focused on identifying intelligent candidates who are also a behavioral fit. Plum also aims to eliminate the chances of hiring managers selecting a candidate based on their gut instincts or feelings. It arms interviewers with information gathered from the pre-hiring assessment and provides them with structured behavioral-interview questions. This helps reduce bias and ensures that candidates are selected based on reliable and quantifiable data not just guesses.

A common problem with many pre-employment assessment tests is that that can be faked fairly easily and don’t provide reliable testing of intelligence. Plum claims its assessment cannot be cheated as it incorporates two distinct types of intelligences and full behavior spectrum. The assessment tests provide hiring managers with actionable information and help them predict if a candidate would perform as expected in a particular workplace. Compared to traditional hiring processes, Plum focuses on objectivity and takes the guess work out of the equation. It evaluates candidates based on objective data backed by evidence. Ultimately, Plum’s pre-employment assessment tests result in better hiring and engagement and reduced turnover.

The Personality Inventory test assesses candidates based on ten important character traits that can mean all the difference between good and bad selection i.e. enthusiasm, assertiveness, openness, compassion, self-regard, politeness, orderliness, stability, and industriousness. The social Intelligence tests present the candidates with different work situations, who and are asked to respond accordingly.

If you are considering Plum it might also be sensible to investigate other subcategories of Best HR Software gathered in our database of SaaS software reviews.

It is important to keep in mind that almost no software in the HR Software category is going to be an ideal solution that can fulfill all the goals of different company types, sizes and industries. It may be a good idea to read a few Plum reviews first as certain services might perform well exclusively in a very small set of applications or be prepared with a really specific type of industry in mind. Others can operate with an intention of being simple and intuitive and consequently lack complex features needed by more experienced users. There are also apps that support a large group of users and offer a rich feature set, but that in most cases comes at a higher cost of such a solution. Make sure you're aware of your requirements so that you pick a software that provides all the features you search for.
