What is the significance of assessments in L&D?
Assessments as an integrated approach to L&D and performance management may go a long way toward ensuring that your current employees are appreciated and motivated.
Even if there aren’t any immediate possibilities for growth, they’ll feel as though the company is investing in them. This is critical to their capacity to envision a way forward in the company and make the required modifications to overcome any hidden roadblocks to their advancement.
Assessments to increase participation in upskilling
Companies that use candidate assessment tools are exposed to a candidate’s macro and micro strengths and vulnerabilities, as well as a peek of their latent potential. It shows them where a viable applicant stands on the scale of experience and training required to succeed. They may create training modules for high-quality workforce development, launch functional cross-disciplinary training, and re-skill, upskill, or mentor existing employees to improve their skills. People must be constantly upskilled in order to keep up with rapid technological progress.
Coding challenges for better engagement
Top talent generally has a plethora of options available to them. HR departments are typically unaware of it, resulting in significant turnover. One of the biggest reasons is lack of engagement and lack of recognition. Top tech talent want to be recognised for their efforts and their skills as well. Codathons and coding challenges enhance the engagement of employees, make them feel recognized and rewarded, and improves job satisfaction all in all. These kinds of assessments, if integrated into the strategic employee engagement plan, can definitely be key in retaining your top performers.
