Using employability skills assessments not only improves your company’s recruitment and selection process, but also your employees’ training and development needs. Organizations that invest in a culture of professional employee skill development can outperform the competition by 500% or more.

At eSkill, we can help you foster your employees’ professional growth through customizable employment assessment tests that cover the subjects and subtopics you need to meet your training goals and provide you with detailed score reports that identify test-takers’ strengths and weaknesses. In addition, eSkill has partnered with GetEducated, an online educational resource for adult learners, to offer you a new way to train your employees through assessments that direct learners to highly specific online courses based on their results.

Assess training needs with a skills gap analysis

When you implement new software, change specific procedures or adopt new policies, you need to train your staff in an organized manner. Start by performing a skills gap analysis, which will help you identify your employees’ professional training and development needs.


Observe the employees performing normal duties, identify the skills they need, relevant to their positions, and rank them based on the needs (from beginner to expert).


Determine the current skill levels held by your employees in each area. Configure role-based tests by selecting the subjects, subtopics, and even questions relevant to the changes in their role.


Use results-by-topic and results-by-question reports to compare what the specific knowledge & skills gaps are and use this information to design personalized training programs.


Train your employees according to their skills levels and reassess their levels at the end of training by generating another version of the test with different questions. Give subsequent retests as needed.

“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.”

"Our staffing agency switched from ProveIt to eSkill several months ago and we haven’t looked back since. We have had no technical issues, the software library and customized tests are beyond everything we need, the reporting is extremely comprehensive and most importantly, none of our test takers have complained! The eSkill tests are very user-friendly which has increased compliance drastically. Highly recommended!"
