Thrive Hiring - What is a campaign and how to set one up

On the Thrive platform, a campaign is a set of assessments sent out to candidates to assess suitability for a specific role. Once a campaign has been set up, it will house all associated data and you’ll be able to add and manage candidates, view results and access reports from the campaigns section. A single campaign contains a single set of assessments for a single role.

To create a Campaign, complete the following simple steps:

  1. From your Thrive home page, select “Test Candidates”

  2. Enter a Campaign name - this is simply for reference and easy look up.

  3. Input the role for which you’d like to assess and select it from the drop down list. If you can’t find the exact role title, select one which is as close as possible.

  4. This is the assessment selection stage. Here, you can select ability and personality assessments and customise these in line with the specific role for which you’re assessing. Initially, you’ll notice that the system defaults to a set of recommended assessments that have been put together by our occupational psychologists. These have been carefully put together to be as valid and predictive as possible. We highly recommend using these and adding to them as you see fit.

  5. If you prefer, you can abandon these recommendations and build your own assessment from scratch, in line with certain restrictions. You can also assess either ability or personality alone. Once you are happy with your selection, press “next”

  6. Now it’s time to add candidates to your Campaign. You can do this individually or by uploading a CSV. You can also skip this step for now and add candidates later if you don’t have any to add yet.

  7. Use our Candidate sourcing tool to add extra candidates directly to your campaign - the candidates suggested have been matched up to your campaign criteria. Simply click on the profile card of the candidate you’re interested in to expand their details. Then, press “add to Campaign” to include them in the current campaign.

  8. You can then set some scheduling and deadline rules for your Campaign. The “start date” determines when the Campaign goes live and the “number of days to complete” designates a certain period of time that each candidate will have to complete their assessment, once they are added to the campaign. Here you can also toggle automatic feedback on and off if you’d prefer to send candidate reports out manually.

  9. Finally you can review everything that has been included in the campaign and you can view the email template that will go out to candidates containing their assessment link.

  10. Once you’re happy, click publish to set the campaign live. You can also save it as a draft to review it and make changes before publishing.
