Product Description

Plum provides organizations with the data they need to make predictive talent decisions with the power of AI and Industrial/Organizational Psychology. By measuring talents such as adaptability, innovation, and communication, Plum enables enterprise organizations to generate and analyze predictive talent data. Plum quantifies human potential at every stage of the employee journey — predicting successful hires, and informing professional development, strategic workforce planning, and emerging leader capability.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

The Plum difference can be summarized as:

Accuracy:

Plum’s Discovery Survey is designed to remove bias and reveal innate talents. The 10 Plum Talents are 4X more accurate at predicting how successful a person will be than hard skills, knowledge, and previous roles alone.
Potential:

Plum Profiles quantify human potential giving leaders a metric that stays relevant in the face of changing business climates. Instead of looking backwards at resumes and past experience, we help talent leaders future proof their talent acquisition and talent management decision criteria.

Collaboration:

Plum Match Criteria enables leaders to prioritize the talents that drive success in a role. Plum talent mapping allows organizations to align the potential of the workforce to available opportunities while simultaneously showing individuals where their unique talents will thrive.

What do you like best?

The fact that the hiring team sets individual match criteria. Also that it gives candidates a detailed overview of their results so that they get something out of the assessment as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's not easy to pull a report of the candidates results. While the SSO is convenient, some hiring managers at certain levels cannot/reuse to take the time to sign in and search per candidates name. I like for managers to be able to have a PDF of the candidates resume and any assessment the candidate has completed during their interview so that the hiring manager can reference these items with ease. I attach these PDF's in the email invitation for their convenience and would like to be able to have a downloadable PDF of the candidates Plum results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Eliminating candidates that do not have the core required talents up-front. Also being able to ask more focused questions during the interview to fully assess their skills. Time is being saved and interviews are more effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I really liked the part when you had a bunch of words displayed and had to choose 3 that desbriced you best and 3 that described you the least. This was challenging for me, cause I felt like sometimes, no words were fitting my personnality.

There was another one, practically the same, but with sentences. I really liked that one too.

In the final step, where we see which type of person we are, I liked that it was pretty accurate. Great job for this! If I were an employer, I would use it to work on my way of treating everyone differently.

I also really liked the fact that the interface is quite nice, pretty and fun to use. It's a good idea to have separated Top Talents, Work Style and Work Preferences. It helps us.

I also like the fact that once you have done the test, you can go back to your profile and still see your results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The first types of questions, with the puzzles and the logical sequences were really hard for me to do. I think I stayed on these question for almost half of the time I spent on the test. I felt like I was wrong each time I sent my answer. I hope there was no good or right answer!

Even though I didn't like that part, I would not take it out of the test.

You just have to be careful on how you use the results of the test. You can't use the results blindly, you have to make sure that they are accurate with everyone.

I don't know if I can say this is a dislike, but I don't see a place were we can to the test again, like after a year. I would like that option to see if my personnality as changed over a year for example. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's really interesting to take a look at the results after doing the test. Some things are right, some things are wrong. I think it's a good tool to have a bigger picture of employees.

Advice : I would use it for that, to picture what type of employees I have and to make sure I treat them accordingly.

As I said earlier, I don't know if this is available, but it would be great if there was a way to do the test in a year or so, to see if our personalities have changed. I think it would be a great way to see our evolution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We (employees) only used plum to do the test, this test was then sent to our employers. Our employers will use it to track our strength and weaknesses. They will use it to see were in the business we should be. We are currently in the process of dividing jobs between employees, so the plum test is quite helpful to them.

We used plum to see differences between people in our workplace. Which person is best suited for different kinds of jobs.

For now, we didn't get any news on how our employers really used the results. They are suppose to come back to us soon with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Plum does offer a great accurate insight in terms of the candidate's real motivation and attitudes for a specific role. It allows me as a hiring manager to set quantitative benchmarks for comparing several applicants as opposed to the typical gut feeling from choosing one or another Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would prefer to have more visibility about how the success criteria are built after inviting other collaborators to a specific role. I found that people within the organization with different roles have a completely different criteria for a role than the hiring manager and this could potentially skew the results that I'm looking for as the main responsible for the new hire Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fair comparison in terms of candidates skills and attitudes - This fills in the gap from the information I receive in a CV

Centralized dashboard for all applicants - I save time not having to check other platforms when looking for this information

What do you like best?

I really love The experience and insights; I enjoyed reading my “profile”: I find some points be 100% about me. Overall the test was engaging and rewarding. I find the IQ part as my favorite. My issue was with finding a way to implement the insight part. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am not sure how to use it for the career development. The insights were too broad to be actionable. While reading I was thinking about horoscope: like wow it is like me but it also looks like mumbo-jumbo. I would love to see guidance or case studies how to use insights Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Not sure I got something back from it. My hr team didn’t follow up. But that is understandable... there is the COVID 19 with more important and immediate issues.

What do you like best?

It doesn't take too long to complete, so it doesn't discourage people from doing it. Some other companies I have worked at use an assessment tool that takes almost an hour and I find people give up before completing assessments that long. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't find it to be the best indicator of someone's suitability. I have seen people score around 65, but their resume shows that they have many years of valuable experience in our industry. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Results are genuinely helpful in assessing strengths and weaknesses of potential hires.

Based on the Big Five personality traits, I have a high degree of confidence in the validity of the results.

The additional hurdle of completing the survey effectively filters out unqualified applicants.

Customer support is excellent -- they are very open to sharing additional information and spending time with you to ensure you understand what you need to know. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see how employees rate on all 10 talents as opposed to just the top 5 that are used for scoring.

The methodology used for scoring should be a bit more transparent so that swings in results can be explained more easily. How is each of the top 5 criteria weighted? Do the bottom 5 influence the score at all? How do you aggregate each team member's match criteria to arrive at a single score? Is it done at the talent or sub-talent, or sub-sub-talent level?

I would like a deeper problem-solving/IQ section, and for that section to be timed.

It would be amazing if Plum implemented more ATS system functionality. As it stands, we still have to use a spreadsheet to manage and review candidates alongside their system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Allowing the hiring manager to contact candidates right through plum . Also, allowing the hiring manager to review what the candidates see if the survey to determine if that is required for that role. Finally, with all resumes, develop a dashboard of keep attributes for each candiate by having plum scan/read their resume (i.e. average number of years experience, location, schooling, skills) to give the hiring manager a quick review of if the right candiate pool has been selected or if they should keep the job posting up longer.

What do you like best?

I was able to send the survey out to my top performers from over the years and identify their personality traits that made them successful at their jobs. This also helped the mgmt team eliminate biases and really defined who our ideal candidate is. I have personally hired 7 staff members over the past year using Plum and their success in integrating into the team and ability to flatten the learning curve has been noteworthy. As a result of which, we have now upgraded to Plum Ultraviolet! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The results were static and inconvenient to breakdown, compare and play with. Eg. John scored x on industriousness - how does his industriousness compare to others? Sure one can go in and our of each profile to compare this from one candidate to another but an ability to filter and compare strengths would be helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Strongly recommend this product. My department was chosen to pilot Plum's implementation and success and the results have made a compelling case to roll this out to the rest of the organization. I honestly cant imagine how I even hired before this! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have a strong understanding on who my ideal candidate is based on empirical data. The interview guide also helps flush this out more.

Having a better understanding of the new hire's personality also helps guide what training/coaching tools will be most effective and sets expectations for the degree of support that will be required and how that will be received in turn. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like that Plum asses a variety of candidate qualities and provides a single metric for recruiters to use to make decisions. I also like that Plum assists with reducing bias in the hiring process by reducing the importance of a CV/resume review. It also saves us time for recruiters by providing an initial screening phase so we are having to review less CVs! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish that Plum provide more guidance for how individual sub-scores can be used to drive hiring decisions. I also wish there were more support on how scores can be analyzed for applicants outside of North America/Europe (to have a better understanding of how things like English fluency and cultural context play in to scores).

Response from of Plum

Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We appreciate product feedback from talent experts such as yourself to make Plum the best it can be.

I just wanted to take a quick second to address your comment: “Some of the questions can be quite polarizing and we’ve heard from candidates it made them overthink the process of completing the assessment.” Hope I can add some clarity here!

Sounds like you’re referring to the personality section of the assessment. The “polarizing” nature of the questions is actually very intentional – the methodology we use here is called forced-choice. We use forced-choice because Industrial/Organizational Psychology research has uncovered that it is a valid way to assess personality while reducing response distortion (i.e., faking of responses). Reducing faking is necessary, especially in the context of using Plum for recruitment, where applicants are often motivated to inflate their responses.

We also believe it’s valuable to have test-takers deliberately think about their responses, rather than rushing through the assessment. After all, it’s in the best interests of both you as the employer and the applicant to understand right from the get-go if the role will be a good fit for them!

Hope that helps! I would be happy to answer any further questions you may have, or send you a copy of our technical manual. You can reach out to me at leann@plum.io.

Plum is so easy to use that you can't get lost or confused, and the results are immediate and actionable - it's been so helpful to us as we aim to slim down from hundreds of applications per job to a manageable and high-quality quantity .

You can also plug Plum into multiple other hiring softwares (eg. Greenhouse) and use it to improve your insights on hires as well as test for critical role criteria right at the start of your hiring process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's just so much easier to screen for great candidates who match a specific role's criteria. It's also an easy way for multiple members of a hiring team to have input into what makes for a great 'match' or hire. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
