In the framework of the GeNeus project (a co-funded E+ - KA2: Strategic Partnership | vet project, aimed at developing, promoting and mainstreaming gender neutral tools and test for selection processes), a Set of Gender-neutral Selection Tools and Test have been developed to support Human Resources professionals from Small to Medium Enterprises, Public Administration and Post-Secondary Professional Education institutions in guaranteeing a fair, effective and gender-neutral recruitment and selection process. The present intellectual output is a Set of Application of Gender-neutral Selection Tools and Test for SMEs. The objective of this document is to provide professionals from SMEs with specific insights on the issues at stake and benefits of improving gender balance in their enterprises. Concomitantly, it provides practical guidance for an effective use of the GeNeus tools in their staff recruitment and selection processes with a view to raise awareness on the importance of gender-neutral testing and motivate them to adopt gender-neutral testing and promote the download of quality testing templates for free on the project homepage.
The specific tools developed - and that are examinated and explained from the SMEs point of view - are:
- A Job Analysis Template;
- A General Competencies for Employment Questionnaire;
- Problem-solving Exercises;
- An Interview Template;
- An Evaluation Checklist of the applicant.
