Using employment skills assessments improves your company’s recruitment and selection process and helps you assess employees’ training and development needs.

Organizations that invest in professional employee skill development can outperform the competition by 500% or more.

This is why modern companies use skills assessments to make employee development and selection more scientific, more efficient, and less prone to bias.

eSkill helps you foster employees’ professional growth with customizable employment assessments that measure skill areas you need to enable you to meet your business goals. You receive detailed score reports that identify employees’ strengths and weaknesses, so you can easily identify training gaps.

eSkill also partners with GetEducated, an online educational resource for adult learners, to make it possible for you to direct learners to highly specific courses so they can further their professional development.

Assess training needs with a skills gap analysis

When you implement new software, change procedures or adopt new policies, assess training needs by performing a skills gap analysis to identify employees’ professional training and development needs.

STEP 1. DEFINE SKILLS LEVELS

Observe employees performing normal duties, identify the skills they need that are relevant to their job responsibilities and rank them from beginner to expert based on skill level.

STEP 2. BUILD THE ASSESSMENTS

Determine the current skill levels held by employees in each area. Then configure role-based tests by selecting subjects, subtopics, and questions that are relevant to potential changes in their job role.

STEP 3. ANALYZE THE RESULTS

Use results-by-topic and results-by-question reports to identify knowledge & skills gaps and design personalized training programs.

STEP 4. TRAIN AND RETEST

Train employees according to current skill level, reassess them when training is complete using another version of the test with different questions, and retest as required.

“We did demos with maybe 6 other companies, and eSkill kept coming to the top, because of the flexibility, the integration into our Taleo application process, and then being able to use it in other areas of the company. Now, after integrating our Taleo system with eSkill, we’re able to move into the process immediately and we have scores in hand. It’s a 100% improvement in the time reduction.”
