Mercer | Mettl's mission is to enable organizations to build winning teams by making credible people decisions across two key areas: acquisition and development.

Mettl's research-backed assessments, efficient cloud platform, and in-depth analytics help them deliver transformative results for clients and their employees. Mettl creates customized assessments across the employee lifecycle, including pre-hiring screening, candidate skills assessment, training and development programs for employees/students, certification exams, contests and beyond.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Mettl allows you to add an assessment to a job's interview plan.

Note: To enable this integration, your organization must have an Enterprise account with Mettl.
