New Hire Physical Capability Assessments

A healthy workforce is a more cost-effective workforce. DataFit partners with employers to match new hire candidates with available jobs to help them develop a safer and healthier workforce.


A bad hire is a costly mistake for employers. DataFit’s New Hire Physical Capability Assessments allow employers to take control of their hiring needs and enjoy the following benefits.

  • Risk Mitigation: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) cost businesses between $45-54 billion a year. New hire evaluations objectively match people to jobs they can perform to minimize injuries from day one.

  • Employee Efficiency: Healthier employees are more effective employees. By limiting the odds of ergonomic injuries, employees can operate at their peak physical performance.

  • ROI & Cost Savings: Prevention is more cost-effective than treatment. DataFit drives ROI by reducing medical claims, pharmacy, and workers’ compensation. Indirect savings are obtained through a reduction in absenteeism and turnover, unlike Functional Capacity Evaluations that tend to “pass” every new hire candidate.

At DataFit, we match workers with open positions.  We do not eliminate opportunities. We evaluate job candidates and employees in a safe and legally defensible manner to help employers build a healthier workforce.

  • Standardized Assessments: Every candidate goes through the same rigorous, evidence-based assessment process. Assessments take less than 45 minutes using isokinetic machines to measure a candidate’s physical capabilities.

  • Flexible Scheduling: DataFit can handle high-volume evaluations using mobile units at an employer’s designated location or at hundreds of convenient locations through our nationwide provider network.

  • Employer-Controlled Criteria: Employers calibrate their own tolerance for legal challenges, hiring needs, and ROI provided they are in compliance with Department of Labor guidelines.

  • Analysis: Once assessments are complete, objective, data-driven reports are delivered in less than 24 hours to provide employers with the necessary information to make their hiring decisions.
