To take on an employee to your rising, or successful business is a test of faith and patients. So once you hire someone you want to know that he or she is doing their job and doing it right. One of the ways to find this out is to put them through employee assessment, usually by way of having them meet with an outside consultant.
Employee assessment is a step in which your employees will be put under the magnifying glass and asked to give a basic run through of what they do and how they effectively spend their day on your time. Employee assessment is your way of weeding out those who're working and earning you money, from those who are loafing around and wasting your money.
Through employee assessment you will hopefully find out the true nature of your employees. It is probably best that you bring in an outside source to comb through the staff though. This way there is no way that the decisions that come from employee assessment can be called opinionated or biased.
