Talent Show: Assessing Employee Skills
Just what kind of skills do your employees have? How prepared are they to take on future roles within the organization? We help our clients answer these critical questions. Our comprehensive Talent Assessment tools identify employees’ skill levels from communication to leadership, to the ability to analyze data. To help them improve, we develop an Individual Development Plan for each employee, which includes recommendations on activities and timelines that ensure the employee is on a path to success.
Digging Deeper: Online Assessment Tools
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ tool for evaluating employee skills, so we employ more than two dozen assessment tools, which employees can take online. These assessment tools include tests that measure skills, interest and ability for a particular role, including a 360-degree assessment that collects valuable feedback from a full circle of evaluators – supervisors, direct reports, peers, and clients/vendors.
