Your subscription is cheaper than the cost of one bad hire!

Use our database to identify and research the vendors offering the products and services you are looking for and to conduct due diligence on specific vendors of interest. With average the cost of one bad hire estimated at $4,000, the more work you put into finding the right vendor the more you will save, allowing your subscription to pay for itself many times over.


Why pay for your untrained research analysts to study this complex market?

Use the database to identify potential investment and acquisition targets as well as to look at the trends driving market dynamics, product strategies, etc. A subscription costs less than dedicating your internal resources to months of research and study, freeing up their time to add value in other ways.

what experts are saying about this report:

“This is probably the most comprehensive and well-researched report ever created on staffing assessment and employee selection technology. A valuable source of information for vendors, practitioners and investors. Anyone building and marketing staffing technology, developing staffing technology strategies, or advising on the use of staffing technology solutions will benefit from Charles’ extensive insights and knowledge.”

Steven Hunt, Chief Expert, Technology and Work, SAP

“As a firm, Gotham Growth, in its 17 years exclusively serving the HCM industry, we get to know most everyone in this space. It is hard to find anyone who knows the talent assessment industry at a deeper level than Rocket-Hire. Blending their command of the technical nuts and bolts of assessments with their business knowledge of the industry provides insights hard to find anywhere else. This database is a must-have for anyone interested in making sense of a very fragmented, segmented, and complex market. The value provided by your subscription will immediately become apparent.”

David Hain, Managing Director, Gotham Growth Group

“This research is a natural extension of the expertise that Charles and team have provided the market for almost 20 years! We’ve worked with and recommended them many times over 10+ years because we—and our clients—demand an approach that blends real world practicality with defensible rigor. This research project puts all of their wisdom at your fingertips. I can’t imagine finding a more pragmatic, business-based, smart, and collaborative resource for all things talent assessment.”

Linda B., Co-founder and Managing Partner, Talent Growth Advisor

“Rocket-Hire has been researching assessment products and tools for many years, continually offering valuable advice to my clients and myself. This research is a welcome addition to the field and will be an invaluable resource for anyone seeking guidance and advice navigating the complexities of talent assessment. I highly recommend subscribing.”

Kevin Wheeler, Founder, Future of Talent Institute

“For the 20+ years that I’ve known Charles Handler and Rocket-Hire, he has been my go-to guide for any question I’ve had about the science of assessment and selection. Like Charles, I believe the path to improving fairness in recruiting in the twenty-first century will be to double down on the quality of how we decide who we will hire next—not only to impact our employer’s performance but to make sense of our decisions to the candidates we haven’t yet hired. Read his free report and, when you get around to investing in elevating your candidate assessment from choke point to prediction, consider the value of his Vendor Research Portal.”

Gerry Crispin, Co-Founder, CareerXroads
