[Recruitment] Eiffage HR team increases the effectiveness of recruitment with language assessment, with Pipplet tests








The Background

Eiffage is one of the largest construction companies in France, with over 70,000 employees on different continents. One of its goals is to build environmentally friendly communities by creating sustainable cities connecting territories.

A recruitment effort across the company led Eiffage to look for language assessment tests as a way to develop a more standardized and faster approach to their early recruitment phase.

Etienne Azerad, Eiffage's English Trainer says "The system works well. The responsiveness in Pipplet is impressive." Pipplet provided Eiffage with a niche solution that recommended several appropriate candidate profiles within 24 hours.
Azerad added that "the test allowed us to form a necessary first impression of the candidate's language skills, which helped us know which candidates deserved a second interview in person."

Finally, Etienne added that "there are opportunities to further develop the test to cover even more depth for slightly more complex positions", which he looks forward to seeing.
