Screening

Hire the right person the first time.

Lesson Desk’s screening features allow you to measure how suitable a candidate is for a role, based on the personality characteristics or cognitive abilities that the role requires.

Employees learn
faster in their native language.

Our unique media engine enables you to combine soundtracks and subtitles for different languages with the same video content. This allows you to transfer knowledge in the preferred language of each employee without the need to re-render content.
