How Assessments Promote Employee Development
Evaluate what new hires already know and create onboarding plans that focus on material they don’t know.
Identify Knowledge Gaps
Pinpoint areas where employees need more training and develop personalized training programs that help them grow in their current positions and with the company.
When you implement new software, change procedures, or adopt new policies, use skills assessments to ensure employees absorbed the material and identify areas where additional training is needed.
Identify “Promotable” Employees
The best candidate may already work for your company. Use skills assessments to identify employees who have the right knowledge and experience, or would with additional training.
Studies show that training increases worker productivity, improves employee satisfaction and motivation, and staff retention.
Why Use Skills Tests For Employee Development
- Including video response questions in assessments enables you to evaluate the entire candidate, not just skills and experience.
- By asking candidates to provide a video “resume” you may uncover valuable skills and experience that would be an asset to your organization.
- If a job requires extensive customer contact, you can evaluate candidates’ verbal communication skills for English and other languages.
- Allow hiring managers and entire hiring teams to rate applicants’ responses from one to 10 stars based on criteria you establish.
- Verify candidates’ identity by asking them to display a driver’s license or other picture ID.
- Present candidates with common situations they would encounter on the job to evaluate their problem-solving skills.
