What is a skills assessment?
Hiring new employees can be a daunting task, with hundreds – sometimes thousands – of applications and a slew of candidates eager to join your team. While there is a learning curve for even the most qualified employees starting in a new role, they need to possess a basic set of skills in order to be successful and happy within the position. The same goes for loyal employees who are taking on different roles within the business. Skills assessments ensure that the candidates and existing employees have a solid understanding and ability to perform the tasks required of them on the job.
Skills assessments are also helpful to candidates deciding if they want to pursue a specific role within a business. It provides a window into what will be expected of them with their day-to-day work as well as insight into the big picture of their potential position.
