TECHNICAL WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT
How do we support your technical workforce development efforts?
Our focus is to help you evaluate the technical skills of potential and existing employees. We do this by providing off the shelf, customized, and EEOC compliant assessments and related services.
Most successful technical workforce development efforts do not occur in isolation from the rest of the organization.
With a holistic view, we provide two primary service areas:
Technical Knowledge, Skill and Ability Assessments
Our off the shelf assessments are used across many organizations to assist in evaluating skills for potential and existing employees. Review a sample of those assessments
Development Concepts also creates EEOC-compliant
content-validated technical knowledge, skill and ability assessments for use in candidate selection processes as well as determining incumbent training needs. We specialize in industrial and transit assessments, spanning jobs from diesel bus mechanic to industrial electrician.
Use of a content-validated assessment assures the client that a complete linkage is established between the written expectations of the job, the observed actual tasks and activities of the job and the content of the assessment, and that the content of the assessment reflects the important job activities, knowledge, skills and abilities. In this way, candidate scores truly represent their potential performance on the job. Development Concepts also has an array of "off-the-shelf" technical assessments that can be revised to suit special needs or used as-is for circumstances where a validated assessment is not desired.
Review and Evaluation of Existing Assessment & Training Systems
Not sure where your candidate selection processes, assessments or training programs stack up in comparison to best practices?
We can review and evaluate your existing systems and identify areas of potential opportunity or risk, and provide recommended actions to take to address your specific needs or concerns.
