There are two very important strategies that companies use to
develop and train a highly effective and productive workforce.
The first is to hire quality employees that want to succeed.
They further motivate their employees to achieve higher levels of
productivity and performance by enhancing personal competency.
Two very fine tools that will help you achieve those goals are the
Achiever pre-employment assessment and the Career Competency
learning needs assessment.
The Career Competency Assessment provides a very detailed and
comprehensive report that measures sixteen competencies and various
key behaviors that have been defined for as the most critical
individual skills and behaviors required for an organization and its
individual employees to be successful and directly support a
company's strategic objectives.
Measures 16 Competencies
Career Competency assesses an individual in the
following sixteen competencies:

Personal Competency Development Plan
Career Competency is directed
specifically at personal development and career growth. It
includes a Personal Competency Development Plan which identifies
areas where the individual would benefit the most from training and
development. The areas of weakness are indicated by low scores
on the Competency Assessment Summary. The Career Competency report
recommends online training materials and the most up-to-date
professional development books. By using the recommended self
study resources, the individual can be expected to improve in the
competencies targeted for improvement. When coupled with
online learning courseware, you have a very efficient training and
development program that is highly cost effective.
Career competency deals with topics such as
professional integrity, honest and ethical business behavior,
managing interpersonal conflict, strategic thinking and vision, and
creativity and innovation. Other important areas of
development include the global perspective and international
awareness, and understanding of diverse cultures.
Many companies are actively promoting and involved
with diversity training and awareness programs. Many of the
attitudes regarding diversity are behaviorally based. Career
Competency points out the advantages of diversity and accepting the
differences in others while also promoting zero tolerance for
discrimination. If you are trying to build a more diverse
workforce, you need this assessment as part of your training and
The individual can easily monitor his
progress through re-assessment at periodic intervals. The
