April 8, 2010 ( - Aon Consulting announced its Human Capital Practice is offering its proprietary pre-employment assessments on a new platform: the Global Assessment and Talent Engine (G.A.T.E.).

According to the announcement, G.A.T.E. provides an on-the-go, global platform for job applicants and hiring managers.  The new system allows users to take assessment tests from any smart device or computer, from anywhere in the world.

The platform also reaches more bilingual candidates than before, now allowing users to toggle between test items written in different languages.  

G.A.T.E. provides hiring managers with instant individual candidate results and a dashboard of predictors, tagging the candidate qualified or not qualified.

It is critical that organizations identify the right candidates from the beginning of the pre-employment process,” said Elizebeth Varghese, senior vice president and Talent Solutions Practice leader with Aon Consulting, in the announcement.
