Washington Farrington
case study of manufacturing production workers


One of the nation’s leading manufacturers of packaged coffee and single-serve brewing machines.



This manufacturer wanted to align talent acquisition with its corporate culture and enable recruiters with candidate data to differentiate applicants based on their problem-solving, teamwork, and quality control abilities.



Modern Hire built the client a Virtual Job Tryout that assessed candidates on situational judgment, work style, work history, and problem-solving.



By measuring key competencies, the Virtual Job Tryout accurately predicted higher rates of adaptability, problem-solving, promotion potential, and overall performance.

Candidates who scored highest on the Virtual Job Tryout showed 34% better promotion potential, 31% better performance, and 29% better problem-solving skills.
