Mystery Employee Mystery Employee

Mystery applicant

This is a way to monitor and improve your recruitment and adaptation process.  

If you lack qualified candidates, or the ones you hire do not stay long at your company, it is important to examine your company through the eyes of an applicant.

The mechanics: Under the guise of a real applicant, the agent submits his/her application to the company and goes through all the stages of recruiting.

During this process, the mystery applicant evaluates the:

  • Company presence on recruitment portals and its activity
  • Quality of the recruitment process
  • Quality of the interview and the presentation of the vacancy

And conducts a comparative analysis in comparison with the competitors.

The mystery employee evaluates the:

  • Difficulties of employment and internship
  • Adaptation and learning process
  • Interaction with the leader and mentor
  • General environment within the team
  • Violations and abuse of power

As a customer, you will receive:

  • An evaluation on the company as a whole and a more specific evaluation of one particular outlet or the outlets located in a particular region/city as well as individual categories of employees.
  • On-line statistics based on the Shopmetrics programme, complete with photo and audio interviews.Continuous monitoring of the HR managers and field managers
