Corporate Solutions offer three different job analysis options to assist you with personnel selection, performance management and training decisions: Job Profiling, SkillMap and WorkKeys Estimator.
With ACT's job profiling process, an ACT-trained facilitator works collaboratively with groups of your employees to complete each job analysis. Job incumbents serve as the subject matter experts who define the tasks and skills needed to successfully perform a specific job.
Job profiling consists of a task analysis to select the tasks most critical to a job and skill analysis to identify the skills and skill levels required to enter the job and effectively perform the job. By matching the job profile information with individual scores on the WorkKeys assessments, you can make reliable decisions about hiring, training and program development needs.
Job profiling provides these benefits:
- Supports hiring, promotion and training decisions
- Uses focus groups and ACT-trained facilitators
- Offers a proven methodology and reliable results
- Uses ACT's SkillPro® software
- Meets requirements adopted by the EEOC
