Workforce Assessments & Evaluation
The key to building a successful workforce is insightful training; whether you are hiring a new employee or evaluating a seasoned worker. Employee assessments are the perfect tool for business owners, supervisors, and HR managers to not only gauge if a worker has the skills and knowledge for a job but to also understand what training is required, resulting in the safest and most efficient workforce possible.
Identifying and Developing Job Skills with NBS Assessments
Nocti Business Solutions helps companies develop their workforce no matter the industry, worker skill level, or training methods. Our Assessment Tests are specifically designed to evaluate a potential worker to determine if they have the technical skills to be a productive member of your organization. Our assessments also allow supervisors to focus their training and development on the areas needed, making their time, effort, and investment as effective as possible.
What Are Employee Assessment Tests?
Employee Assessments are tests that contain content and questions specific to a job within an industry or company. Managers and supervisors will generally use two types of assessments, Pre-employment Assessments or Job Evaluations.
Pre-Employment Assessments are tests used in the interview and hiring process that screen potential employees. These tests gauge a candidate’s knowledge and current skill level. From the results, companies can make a well-informed decision to hire or pass on the candidate. Even more beneficial, if hired, supervisors and managers identify exactly where their new employee’s skills and knowledge will best succeed and if he or she may need additional training.
Benefits of Pre-Employment Testing
- Efficient hiring process
- Safe work environment
- Lower turnover rate
- Cost savings
- More competent workforce
Job Evaluation Testing
Job Evaluations are tests specifically designed for current employees. Like Pre-Employment, these assessments are industry-specific, testing the knowledge and skills of an incumbent worker. With these assessments, businesses are able to accurately identify their workforce’s strengths and weaknesses.
Benefits of Job Evaluation Testing
- Identify training needs
- Measure employee skill-level
- Maintain safety standards and regulations
- Increase worker morale
- Document employee growth
- Create promotion opportunities
