How do I get started with Discus?

Getting started with Discus is easy. You'll just need to take a few minutes to sign up for an account, and then you'll be ready to start creating profiles right away.

Can I send questionnaires to my candidates online?

Discus provides an entire suite of features to make this process easy and automatic. At the simplest level, you can simply enter a person's e-mail address, and Discus will send them an invitation and then display and manage the questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is complete, a report will immediately be compiled and added to your accounts.

Discus also provides lots of options for your to customise this process to meet your exact requirements. For example, you can arrange to be automatically notified and sent a copy of the report as soon as it is available.

Can a person completing a questionnaire read their own report?

This is a decision you can make as you set up an invitation. There's no requirement to share the report, but you have the option of doing so if you wish.

Discus can also provide an intermediate solution through the 'Feedback' report, which is an alternative version of the report specifically designed for this purpose, providing a readable and accessible summary of the results.

Do I have access to all my profile reports?

Every DISC profile produced on your account is held in your own secure Discus database. You can access, review and manage those reports at any time. Discus even provides extra features to assess the results in combination, such as comparing candidates against the needs of a role, or assessing how individuals would work together in a team.

How can I recover a lost or forgotten Discus password?

It's easy to reset your Discus access details. You can start the process from the Discus sign-in page, or by following the link below. Discus will handle resetting your access through your registered e-mail address.

Is training available?

We offer a comprehensive online video training course introducing the DISC system and its workings. The course is free if you sign up for an account with fifty credits or more.

Discus itself offers an interactive guide to get your started, and extensive help resources throughout the system.

I received a test invitation, but I'm not able to use it.

There can be various reasons for this. The invitation code might already have been used, or it might simply have expired, or been cancelled by the user who originally set up the invitation.

Your best course of action in a situation like this is to get in touch with your invitation provider and ask them to set up another invitation for you.

I completed an invited questionnaire, but I didn't receive a copy of my report.

When a Discus user sends out an invitation, they can choose whether to give you access to your report or not, so it may simply be that this option isn't active.

If you think you should have received a report, your best course of action is to contact the person who sent you your invitation; they will have the option of sending you a copy.

Can I try Discus for free?

Sorry, we aren't able to offer free trial profiles, but if you want to try the service, remember that you can set up a Discus account with just a single credit.

Automating Your Recruitment Process

28 April 2011

Axiom's products can be deployed across many different business functions, but recruitment is the field where our solutions provide the widest range of possible applications. Our selection of products and services is designed to provide a scalable solution, from standalone behavioural profiling, through networked assessments, up to a completely integrated recruitment package.

At whatever level you approach automation in recruitment, you can expect Axiom to give you some key advantages that will not only help to streamline the process itself, and offer you new ways of looking at the practice of recruitment itself. Examples of these key advantages include:

  • Efficiency
    Not only are our solutions highly effective in their own right, but they're designed to be as intuitive and understandable as possible. So, building Axiom profiling into your recruitment process is a painless and seamless experience.
  • Adaptability
    Every organisation has its own practices and procedures in recruitment, and Axiom's solutions are designed to complement and expand on these. Our applications are flexible enough to adapt to a wide range of requirements, and our more sophisticated solutions even offer customisation services to match your exact needs.
  • Objectivity
    Using an automated system helps to ensure a level of absolute fairness and objectivity to your applicant assessment programme. Axiom's products only consider a candidate's quantifiable advantages for a role.
  • Integration
    Though automation can bring some important advantages to recruitment, we never forget that the process is ultimately about human communication. Axiom's technology helps to integrate and streamline recruitment, connecting decision makers and providing them with a unique range of insights and information.

The Entry Level: Standalone Behavioural Profiling

If you don't currently use a behavioural evaluation in your recruitment processes, then you're missing out an a valuable piece of the assessment puzzle. Axiom's Discus profiler is designed to give you specific and relevant results over a wide spectrum of recruitment questions. It can assess an applicant's suitability for particular types of role, or look at more general features such as their motivation or leadership potential. Discus expresses its results in plain English (and many other languages besides), so that there's no need for extensive training before putting it in place - though we do provide a full accreditation course if you want to use profiling to its fullest potential.

If you do currently use profiling, then you'll already be aware of the advantages it brings. If you haven't yet seen Discus in action, though, you may not realize just how sophisticated a full profile analysis can be. You'll find examples of Discus reports elsewhere on this site, each presenting a wealth of information in a clear, concise way, and in language aimed directly at a business user. Discus has always been the market innovator, and as well as its powerful reporting features, has a host of other cutting-edge capabilities, like interactive Job Profiling and Internet connectivity as standard.

However you want to use profiling in your recruitment process, Discus is designed to fit easily alongside your existing approach. To take a simple example, there are several different ways to have a candidate complete a questionnaire. If you prefer to use paper questionnaires, for example, you can print as many as you need directly from the software, and enter the results by hand. Discus can also accept candidate's responses directly, of course. For a more technically sophisticated solution, though, Discus will connect with its companion product Discus Online so that you can conduct screening profiles across the Internet.

The Next Level: A Networked Profiling Solution

The idea of using the Internet as a component recruitment brings us to the next level of sophistication. Axiom's online services, and especially Discus Online, give you all the connectivity and integration you could need to provide a fully networked recruitment solution. How can networking help in recruitment? Consider these advantages:

  • Accessibility
    Using the Internet in recruitment makes candidate communication instantaneous. In profiling terms, that means that you can make a profile questionnaire directly accessible from - literally - anywhere in the world. Now, there's no longer any need to use conventional mail to send questionnaire forms, or have candidates actually present to complete a questionnaire. Instead, the whole process can be automated across the network, and Discus Online's multilingual abilities even break down any language barriers.
  • Simplicity
    Discus Online is designed to provide all your basic online recruitment needs as simply as possible. It will not only organise and manage your profiling practices, but can even automate communication with your candidates. For example, when you're ready for an applicant to complete an online questionnaire, Discus Online will e-mail them directly, and then contact you when the resulting report is ready to view.
  • Customisation
    Though Discus Online can meet most basic profiling needs immediately, it's also flexible enough to adapt to the needs of different recruitment processes. Using a feature we call Synergy, its capabilities can be merged seamlessly into almost any existing system. For instance, if you need Discus Online to transfer its results directly into your existing recruitment database, Synergy can take care of the connection.
  • Integration
    If you're co-ordinating a more complex recruitment process - for instance, one that involves several branches or offices - you'll find Discus Online's integration options invaluable. It provides a fully secure communications medium, so that you can assess and discuss results with colleagues or clients, all within the Discus Online system.
  • Cost-effectiveness
    Last on our list, but certainly not least, is the issue of cost-effectiveness. Discus Online offers a pay-as-you-go solution, so you are charged only for the services you use. It also offers a generous discount scale for higher levels of use.

All in all, Discus Online and its suite of services offers the most powerful and adaptable profiling solution you can find. It's flexible enough to fit the needs of almost any online recruitment process. Profiling, though, is only one part of a whole range of information needed to assess applications in a recruitment scenario. Our next level of automation takes the tried-and-tested infrastructure behind Discus Online, and applies it to the recruitment process as a whole.
